    The liberals love the working man....that why their hands are buried in his pocket...to insure that the money he earns doesn't weight him down...they pluck it out as fast as he can put it in....

    They say they are, and they seem to be sincere about it, but their actions and policies tend to harm working people. Not because the liberals want to harm them, but because liberals seem to lack the sense to figure out beforehand that their policies and legislation won't have the intended effect.

    And they don't go back and see if their actions in fact did have the intended effect. They're just ecstatic that they felt moved to take action and did take action, and... that's it. Any failure is because of a) not enough money or b) the evil GOP, not because of c) bad implementation of a bad idea.

    All this glorification of the union is incomprehensible. Sure, they might have been needed... last century. But when an unskilled laborer earns significantly more than they're worth, that job is going to go overseas.

    Yes, liberals are for working man and woman, and liberals are also for the disenfranchised, and the disadvantaged, and others. Liberals, as a rule, don't blame the unfortunate for their misfortunes. Liberals know that life is harder for some than for others for various different reasons, and we don't assume that all people who suffer setbacks, and hard times, are just lazy or shiftless or whatever. Conservatives seem to have the mistaken belief that the playing field is level, and that is rarely the case at all. They seem to think that everyone should be able to make it, but some people just have all the cards stacked against them from the start. Liberals want to level the playing field!!!!!

    Thats a complicated question. Certainly some are, such as those who support universal health care. I don't think anyone can deny that universal health care, if it were to work properly, would favor the working class more than any other. The Democrats are also talking about a variety of different measures such as repealing the federal limits on overtime enacted 3 years ago, and raising the minimum wage.

    Most unions, representative of the "working man", are supporters of the democratic party, without question.

    No politician is for the working man. They are only out for themselves.

    90% of all Union ( PAC) money goes to Democratic candidates, and for good reason, Republicans are the only party that think Corporations are individuals.

    Libs are for anything that gets them more power and money. They are going for a completely socialist country, forgetting that socialism has been tried and found defective...at least on this planet.

    Source(s): The U.S.S.R. failed, so will a socialist U.S.A.

    Make sure that you ask liberals themselves, not others. Frankly, it's been my experience that neoconservative extremists don't have a clear picture of what anyone besides themselves believes.

    Yes. They are for the working class of America. Republicans are for big business like corporate America and religion.
