A left wing, liberal, is somebody that believes in the power of the government. Let the government make decisions, for it's subjects. Let the government look after the people, with the peoples money to do so. The government believes that the people are not capable to look after themselves.
Liberalism, leftwingism is the victory of symbolism over substance. A policy or law or a new government department is seldom designed to solve an identified problem. The purpose is to reflect well on the person or group that proposes it. Accordingly, most laws and social programs produce no tangible benefit. Policies and laws which are not required create huge bureaucracies. The cost is high, taxes are higher because of costs, and thousands of workers are taken from the work force, which contributes to a labor shortage. This is a waste of their time and taxpayer money. High taxes, hundreds of taxes, rules, laws and massive amounts of red tape and bureaucracy are results of liberalism, leftwingism.
A left wing government gets paid, by us, to often do what did not need to be done.
In leftwingism activity is confused with achievement.
That's what a left wing liberal believes.
