Aren't most conspiracies at their core leftist/liberal?

A cospiracy is not left or right. It just is. It's a way to achieve a certain goal for a person or a group of persons.
A cospiracy hunter, truthseeker and thinker is a person who is not a liberal or conservative. When this person labels him/herself in the quest for truth he/she surrenders to the emotions and fails in his quest. He/she becomes an active participant in this wild carousel. A lobster in a giant bucket. Because the truth is not left or right. It just is what it is. The truth.

I beg to differ. There is real debate going on between two different philosophies on topics such as the war, illegal immigration, same sex marriage, and many other topics.

Am I the only one who finds it increasingly disappointing that a nation dedicated to the notion of pluralism subsists upon the perpetual maintenance of the least pluralistic plurality possible; essentially a binary government? Can it be merely coincidence that such an arrangement benefits the parties and their allies most, while benefiting the people the least? Is it simply an accident that two large national demographics are easier to manage and pit against one another than multiple smaller groups?

This site is a "conspiracy theory" discussion board. As such, the apparent "slant" is a result of our highly critical approach at analysis of whatever administration is in office.
The bigger, much more important issue, is the long-standing strategy of dividing the populace into two opposing groups that blame each other for all the problems we have. You've taken deep long swigs of that dangerously poisonous "Kool Aid" as has the vast majority.

This is an op/ed piece and really has no business on ATSNN. Whether or not its going to be a debate or not just depends on how it plays out in whatever forum it ends up in. Before its over I figure it will end up in slug fest.
