Do you think all liberals are socialists?

On the conservative republican group here on CM, they say no Liberals or Socialists allowed. Isn't that presumptuous? Not all liberals are socialists, just like not all conservatives are republicans.

  • Op here, I obviously don't know what the word OR means. Otherwise I would have noticed they were just covering ALL areas of the left side of politics.

  • Sweeping generalizations are only sweeping generalizations. Not all conservatives are Christian. Not all pro-choice people are registered democrats.

    What about communists? Are they allowed in the group?

  • Liberals OR socialists. Socialism is a radical form of liberalism, and they don't want either one in there. No, most liberals in the US are NOT socialists, they have no desire to see our property taken under government control, etc. They do things that have a socialist tinge (like nationalizing healthcare, the auto industry, etc) but they are not themselves socialist.

  • No. I'm very conservative and recognize liberals and socialists as two different groups, just like conservatives and republicans are two different groups. A person can be liberal AND socialist or just liberal or just socialist.
