What is The Liberal Patriot?

The Liberal Patriot is a publication and network for people interested in building a viable center-left coalition based on longstanding liberal values of tolerance, pluralism, freedom, the common good, and pragmatism. The Liberal Patriot seeks to avoid the cultural wars that degrade modern political discourse and focus instead on the core elements of American renewal: national economic development, a strong social safety net for all workers, and international polices that advance America’s interests and democratic values.

Who writes The Liberal Patriot?

The Liberal Patriot was created by co-editors John Halpin, Ruy Teixeira, Peter Juul, and Brian Katulis. The editors will serve as the main writers for the site and have decades of experience in the fields of political ideology; electoral analysis; public opinion; demography; and national security and international policy.
