The Liberal Democrats of America, also known more commonly as the Liberal Democrats and Lib Dems and abbreviated as the LDA, is an Anglo-American political party and political group composing of various liberal political parties from across all member states of the Conference of American States, though it also includes affiliated parties in non-CAS nations as well. The party was founded in 1961 under the name of the Liberal and Democratic Bloc during the early years of the American Parliament. By 1972, the party reorganized into its modern name as the Liberal Democrats of America and is currently lead by Jackie Nutalli and the current President of the American Parliament, Sofia Muñoz, is a member of the LDA. Its headquarters is based in Seattle, Rainier.

The Liberal Democrats of America are a coalition of various political parties in the CAS that espouse various forms of liberalism and its core ideological values are commitment to the defense and spreading of Anglo-American liberalism, adherence to liberal democracy, support for social and cultural liberalism to promote social equality, and support for economic liberalism as part of its economic freedom initiative. The party is also staunchly unionist and supports further integration of CAS member states and supports including more member states within the Americas. The LDA is affiliated with Liberal International and is fully committed to social and economic equality, advancing civil rights and liberties of all peoples within the CAS, and opposing any policies that restrict the liberties, free movement and travel of all citizens of the CAS.

Throughout its history, the Liberal Democrats have been one of the largest and most influential political groups and parties in the American Parliament alongside their historic ally, the United Federalists of America, and their historic political rival, the American Conservative Coalition. The largest member parties are the Democratic-Republican Party from the Kingdom of Sierra, the Democratic Party from Brazil, and the Liberal Democratic Party from Superior. The party's youth and student wings are the Young Liberal Democrats of America and the Student Liberal Democrats of America and there policies are advocated for by their affiliated think tank, the Institute for American Liberal Studies.

Name[edit | edit source]

When the party was first founded in 1961, it was founded under the name of the Liberal and Democratic Bloc back before official political groups and Pan-American political parties were made official and formed and MAPs were grouped into various blocs based around common ideological and political views, policies, and ideas. The Liberal and Democratic Bloc (LDB) was made up of MAPs from various liberal political parties who held views supporting liberal democracy, social justice and a new form of American liberalism. In 1972, the party was renamed as the Liberal Democrats of America and were structured as a transnational political party and later a political group at the same time during the reorganization of the American Parliament in the 1970s. Its current structure was established in 1985 after another reorganization of the party.

Outside of its name and organizational changes, the Liberal Democrats are also renamed based off of translation from official languages in the CAS and are translated as such;

  • French: Libéraux démocrates d'Amérique
  • Spanish: Demócratas liberales de América
  • German: Liberaldemokraten von Amerika
  • Russian: Либерал-демократы Америки
  • Portuguese: Democratas Liberais da América
