Reader feedback: What makes it liberal?

Re: Voter preferences little affected by coalition break-up, Flash News Briefs

No one who dumped the coalition because of the impact their health care or utility reforms have been having is going to come back to them because of a spat over a piece of paper. The same applies in reverse to anyone who was scared of Fico "wrecking" the reforms.

If this worked at all, it would be because a genuine US-style culture war between the SDKÚ and the KDH would drive all the small parties and economic issues out of the media. But that would require the SDKÚ to take a strong pro-choice, pro-affirmative action and pro-registered partnership position, which I very much doubt they believe in, since those issues don't really have much of a backing in Slovakia at all (which is why Smer avoids these traditional social democratic themes)

Is there any evidence that the SDKÚ really is a "liberal" party?
