In fact, all great countries were founded on liberal democratic concepts while backward countries were founded on theocracy or dictatorship.
So please don't tell me that liberals are one of those non-sense labels.
In fact, "lower taxes, limited government, fiscal responsibility in govt, capitalism, regulation of business and investing, a strong national defense, and individual financial responsibility and accountability" is classical liberal. Adam Smith was a liberal.
um.... half of your list is wrong. it was by Republicans
