Q: You talk about how the radical conservatives have distorted the term "liberalism." What's your definition of liberalism?

A:

[1] Keeping church and state separate.

[2] Fighting concentrations of economic power that undermine democracy.

[3] Expanding social insurance, including health care.

[4] And extending the reach of international law and human rights.

These principles all interact. They have to do with the interdependence of all of us.
