The ones shouting the loudest never solve the problems, in fact the poverty and high crime keep getting worse despite the increased funding of programs.

Universal healthcare and feeding hungry children and generating a society of well being FOR ALL is a great philosophy and that is the essence of Progressive philosophy
As well in the constitution
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States. – Constitution of the United States, Article I, Section 8
What liberals like should be mandatory and what they don't like should be banned: There's an almost instinctual form of fascism that runs through most liberals. It's not enough for liberals to love gay marriage; everyone must be forced to love gay marriage. It's not enough for liberals to be afraid of guns; guns have to be banned. It's not enough for liberals to want to use energy-saving light bulbs; incandescent light bulbs must be banned. It's not enough for liberals to make sure most speakers on campuses are left-wing; conservative speakers must be shouted down or blocked from speaking.

It's seems the definition of Liberals changed without them telling anyone. Thomas Jefferson was a very different Liberal than Obama. American liberal has really become it's own term.
I hope we shall take warning from the example and crush in it’s birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength, and to bid defiance to the laws of their country. - Thomas Jefferson
