I am an American liberal. On the political scale i would lean to the left in most political issues. For a long time I wanted to visit Sweden since I admired this countries social welfare system, education and public healthcare. Here I am. I rent a car and drove from Stockholm to Dalarna and a couple of days ago I met a guy at the hostel I am staying at, who told me he was liberal. But to my suprise the liberal party of Sweden is in government with the conservative camp of Moderaterna, Centerpartiet and Kristdemokraterna. Could someone help me understand why swedish liberals are to the right?
