Liberals are individuals who believe in liberalism, and who expect that everyone has the same rights, opportunities, and freedoms. There are many liberals quotes which show that there are varying degrees of liberal thought, and some are more progressive than others. One problem often pointed out is that liberalism can lead to an entitlement mindset, with the belief that everyone should have the same material items and status regardless of the effort put in by the individual. If everyone is given everything and there is no incentive to work hard then eventually few people will pay into the system while many expect to be given something for nothing. Eventually the money runs out because society does not provide incentives to be self sufficient, and many want to be supported in the desired lifestyle without being expected to do anything in return.
