Are you a liberal or leftist? According to you what’s the difference between the two?

Why do you identify as liberal/leftist but not the other?

    To me they are both the same, and yes I am one of them.

    Here in the netherlands, the word "liberaal" means almost the opposite of what "liberal" seems to mean in the USA.

    I identify as leftist because income-disparity and power-disparity have gone way out of hand. It has nothing to do with the size of the government

    I don't know.  Labels have become meaningless when someone who self identifies as liberal  supports some of the most illiberal policies imaginable.

    I do not identify with either general label, I am an individual without a specific category. Most of the time (90%) I do agree with liberal and leftist positions, however.

    I'm for more democracy in the economy, so I'm a leftist. A liberal doesn't want democracy, just some handouts to keep the poor serving the system.
