Not necessary. No one uses the term 'liberal' in the classical liberal sense when referring to American left democrats. It is used in the backward regressive sense, which is why it's an insult. As such, although it is actually false, everyone's already in on it. So there's not a problem.

Not all democrats are liberals, but all liberals are democrats.

What do you call an independent that is fairly liberal, Brandon?

Maybe just the ones that sincerely wanted Hillary to win based on her policies.

Most of her policies are very liberal.

No, but we should stop calling the party democratic.

I'm a Democrat and I agree. It's darn confusing
