The only “liberal” thing you have so far attributed to yourself is caring for the poor. I’m not sure that qualifies you as liberal.
I think most would consider me “conservative” in that I am not a big government guy, particularly on the federal level, and I am far from being a social “liberal” in the modern American sense. I do NOT believe in middle class welfare. Nor do I believe in true “wealth distribution” in the sense of taking from one to give to the other simply to level incomes and wealth.
On the other hand, I think the treatment of the truly poor in this country; the ones who can’t help themselves, is shameful. Neither Repubs nor Dems have done anything for them for decades other than the earned income credit, and that was Reagan’s. So, was Reagan “liberal”? Most would say not, but he did do that. Is Obama, who has done nothing but harm the poor “conservative”, even reactionary? Most would say not to that as well, but that’s his record. He is an income redistributionist, for sure, but only within the middle class that doesn’t need it.
Rather than greatly concerning oneself with which conventional political label to put on oneself, I recommend reading the Popes’ Social Encyclicals. They talk about the economic positions of the Church a lot. I think they are enlightening. Just google “Social Encyclicals”, and you’ll find a lot of fascinating reading. Virtually every Pope wrote one.
Along with that, I recommend getting the book “Redeeming Economics” by John Mueller. It’s on Amazon. He applies the encyclicals as well as the economics of St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas in the context of modern economists and theories. It’s a very learned book, and well documented, though sometimes the graphs and equations are a bit of a slog. But it’s readable even so.
So am I really a “liberal” or a “conservative”? I like to think of myself as simply a “Catholic”.
