Neo-Con is a term coined to describe those individuals who claim to be Republicans, but resemble Fascist Democrats more closely. They believe in the
power of big government, real Republicans don't. That's the most fundamental difference, but Wiki is the way to go for a more in depth, point by
point comparison. Also, there are a large number of very active politcal forums floating around, maybe your answers are there.
Left wing and right wing I think originally reffered to the American Eagle. There are two wings, and both have their extremists, their moderates, and
their traditionalists. The 'farther' left or right you are, the more extreme your views are considered (you are farther from the center, political
compromise and agreement).
Check out PNAC if you want some additional information on the recent sea change in American politics.
Also, FYI, there is a political forum on ATS for discussing just this sort of thing.
