Okay. How the hell can you have the political philosophy "Liberal-Socialist"? Those two philosophies are basically polar opposite of each other.
Please, stop modelling the definitions of words because you want them to fit your scare campaigns. I'm talking to the Republican politicians/voters who think "socialist" is a word you use when cussing.Later, as more radical philosophers articulated their thoughts in the course of the French Revolution and throughout the nineteenth century, liberalism defined itself in contrast to socialism and communism, although modern European liberal parties have often formed coalitions with social-democratic parties.
Liberalism favors the limitation of government power except for the purpose of regulating whom is economically advantaged and who is not. Extreme anti-statist liberalism, as advocated by Frederic Bastiat, Gustave de Molinari, Herbert Spencer, and Auberon Herbert, is a radical form of liberalism called anarchism (no state at all) or minarchism (a minimal state, or sometimes called "the nightwatchman state.") Most liberals claim that a government is necessary to protect rights, yet the meaning of "government" can range from simply a rights protection organization to a Weberian state. Recently, liberalism has again come into conflict with those who seek a society ordered by religious values: radical Islamism often rejects liberal thought in its entirety, and radical Christian sects in Western liberal-democratic states especially the US often find their moral opinions coming into conflict with liberal laws and ideals.
