    This is a list of the top 10 most Liberal Senators in the US Senate. Do you agree or disagree with this list? I would say it is pretty accurate. Maybe add Chuck Shumer D-NY and Hillary Clinton D-NY.

    Number 4 is actually a Socialist (his words not mine). I am always a little suspect of list like these. Four years ago, Kerry was supposedly the most liberal Senator. Now he's not on the list? So, either this uses a different scorecard than the one 4 years ago, or Kerry has moderated.

    Same thing especially since the list comes from a conservative site.

    I really doubt Obama is #1 on the list...or in the top 5 and what is their definition of liberal??

    Someone that is more left then a self proclaimed socialist is quite simply a Marxist.

    Yeah if anything then socialism is probably a prologue to Marxism. Everybody seems to forget that Karl Marx formulated the idea of Communism because he believed that history was on an inevitable course towards it. He was a historian before anything else. Obviously that message was kinda obscured when he said, "Workers of the world unite!"

    I don't think socialism has a defined point in the political spectrum, it's a pretty loose term. It's definitely in the left right now.

    I'm not trying to ruffle any feathers but for the sake of the thread, here's the political spectrum -

    <-Radical<-Liberal-Moderate-Conservative->Reactionary->

    Well, to the Reich wing, anybody who has a "D" after their name is an ultra-liberal communist. After all, single-issue voters are the ones who vote against their best interest by voting in people like Brownback, Huckabee, McCain, etc, etc.
