My wife (and I know others) have this misconception about the US Democratic party and US defined liberalism versus its classical meaning.

Classical Liberalism v American Liberalism

And while I'm posting links, one of my favorite sites is http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html (of which I often link). If you are American and have not read the US Constitution, you absolutely should (it isn't that long).

Personally, I consider myself a classical liberal (though I typically label myself conservative / libertarian). I strongly believe in limited/minimal government, a laizzez-faire government attitude towards private industry, and personal freedom.
