How liberal are Liberals?

What frustrates me are all of the blatant misnomers that so many political parties adopt.

I personally don’t care whether or not Christy Clark heads the B.C. Liberal party and thus the provincial government; what does frustrate me are all of the blatant misnomers that so many political parties adopt.

B.C.’s Liberal party was once fairly close to being truly “liberal,” albeit while under the most progressive of the three Gordons, when the party finally made it onto the scene as official Opposition in 1991, on top of smoldering Socred ruins.

But the current B.C. Liberal party does not get any closer to being “liberal” than whatever’s “liberal” about their true libertarian ideology (look it up – it can get kind of scary in its more fervent mode).

I guess it’s all something quite like that paradox Progressive Conservative party thing.
