Nice. I could use a bigger shop.

But I'm not sure what you mean by 'liberal'. I think you mean leftist?

Here are some, but by no meas all, differences between the Left and Traditional Liberals.

Left-
Contempt for most traditional American values (see below).

Liberal-
Support traditional American values (see below).

Left-
Favors Socialism/Marxism as a political/economic system.

Liberal-
Favors Democracy/Capitalism as a political economic system.

Left-
Favors completely open borders.

Liberal-
Favors restrictions on immigrants.

Left-
Has contempt for religions, especially Christianity. Defends Islam but
prefers a completely secular society.

Liberal-
Believes in religious freedom as long as it is not imposed on others.

Left-
Believes in free speech as long as it agrees with their ideology, political views and agenda.
All other views are either sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, islamophobic, etc. Opposing views should be stifled, condemned (see the universities) or even outlawed.

Liberal-
Belief in open debate and free speech on ALL sides of the issues.

Left-
Belief that universities should be the repositories of leftist ideology.

Liberal-
Belief that universities should offer learning about all ideologies without censorship or excessive prejudice. Ann Coulter should be allowed to speak, for example.

Left-
Belief in the Palestinian cause.

Liberal-
Belief in and support of Israel.

Left-
Belief that males and females are essentially the same with the same characteristics. Any differences are due to "societal conditioning".

Liberal-
Belief that males and females, because they are biologically different, have different characteristic tendencies.

Left-
Contempt for "Dead White Men", i.e. the great thinkers of Western Civilization, the US Constitution, etc. The Founding Fathers are dismissed as slave owners, for example.

Liberal-
Traditional appreciation for the great thinkers of Western Civilization.

Left-
Belief in group thinking "identity politics" based on race, gender, ethnicity, etc.

Liberal-
Belief in the worth and character of the INDIVIDUAL whatever their race, gender, or ethnicity including white men (see Martin Luther King Jr.)

Left-
Contempt for white males as societal oppressors.

Liberal-
Assess white males and all others according to their individual deeds and character.
