Liberals who want to ban sodas aren't really liberals. Being a liberal means you believe in the people's freedom and minimal restrictions by the government, other than those necessary to keep law.
The words "liberal" and "conservative" have become synonymous with pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage, and anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage respectively. They relate to things other than these issues too.

That's why we have the terms Democrat and Republican that are never used by these 14 year old anti-american retards on this site

Those terms are very ambiguous. They don't represent political philosophy, but alignment to a political party.
Democrat =/= liberal, and republican =/= conservative.

That's what I'm getting at, that the terms are used incorrectly for the position of the parties

Actually, conservatives are the ones for limited government. liberals believe in implementing social programs like welfare and affirmative action whereas conservatives are agaisnt raised taxes and a powerful federal government. You sound more like a libertarian

Im sorry i raelly just want an answer no need to hate. How did liberals, if they believe in individual freedom primarily etc, become part of the democratic party which is generally accepted as the "big government" party i.e. more gov't less individual?

Republicans are conservative only when it comes to abortion and gay marriage, and such. Democrats are liberal also only when it comes to those kind of topics. Either than that, it's actually reversed. People who are called liberals, aren't necessarily real liberals. That's the point he was trying to make, and you also confirmed it.

name a moderate republican.

You clearly don't understand how political ideology works. There are Democrats and Republicans spread out through the entire spectrum, including extremes and moderates on both sides.    
   
To answer your question:   
   
Lee Terry (R-NE)   
Chuck Hagel (Former Republican Senator NE, currently on his way to Obama's cabinet)   
Richard Lugar (Former Senator of Indiana)   
John McCain (R-AZ)   
Susan Collins (R-ME)

okay, now name some extreme democrats
#266 to #263 - pooflinger (01/27/2013) [-]
Harry Reid (D-NV)
Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

And based on the diagram to the left, Stalin, Putin, Mao, and Marx.

Again, there are extremes to both parties, and bad people on both sides of the spectrum.

Note where freedom is placed on the diagram

I got to be honest, I'm really not sure why I'm being thumbed down here.
