Good day.


Did the term liberal come before liberate or after?

Did it all stem from the word "live"

Thank you.

The proper root word is LIBERTY. Where did conservative come from. CONSERVE. Oh......to horde or be greedy. To take everything for yourself. Not to share. YEP that sounds about "right".

AND somehow from that jumble of letters which make up the word LIBERTY, some fool came up with a political party known as the Libertarian party, which is nothing but Republican Lite.

Good day.

liberal (adj.)
c.1375, from O.Fr. liberal "befitting free men, noble, generous," from L. liberalis "noble, generous," lit. "pertaining to a free man," from liber "free," from PIE base *leudheros (cf. Gk. eleutheros "free"), probably originally "belonging to the people" (though the precise semantic development is obscure), from *leudho- "people" (cf. O.C.S. ljudu, Lith. liaudis, O.E. leod, Ger. Leute "nation, people"). Earliest reference in Eng. is to the liberal arts (L. artes liberales; see art (n.)), the seven attainments directed to intellectual enlargement, not immediate practical purpose, and thus deemed worthy of a free man (the word in this sense was opposed to servile or mechanical). Sense of "free in bestowing" is from 1387. With a meaning "free from restraint in speech or action" (1490) liberal was used 16c.-17c. as a term of reproach. It revived in a positive sense in the Enlightenment, with a meaning "free from prejudice, tolerant," which emerged 1776-88. Purely in ref. to political opinion, "tending in favor of freedom and democracy" it dates from c.1801, from Fr. libéral, originally applied in Eng. by its opponents (often in Fr. form and with suggestions of foreign lawlessness) to the party favorable to individual political freedoms. But also (especially in U.S. politics) tending to mean "favorable to government action to effect social change," which seems at times to draw more from the religious sense of "free from prejudice in favor of traditional opinions and established institutions" (and thus open to new ideas and plans of reform), which dates from 1823.

Thank you.

Libers are ashamed repukes. They are so ashamed to admit being a repukelican that they formed their own party.

hey derrion, quit typing all boldface as per the posting guidelines of the forum.

liberal is a derivative of the word liberty. your pathetic and moronic attempt to define it as something else is laughable.



what would you describe yourself as being........i'm dying not to hear but go ahead and admit it. we love high comedy.
