I like how people believe one side is for "left-wing" politics while one is for "right-wing politics".
Under the neo cons (read; fascists) we have seen an expanse in power of the federal government only matched now by the liberals (read; socialists). Fun thing about socialists and fascists is that, besides the rhetoric used to influence the masses and minute organizational details there is no difference in the conduct, utility, or results from either system. It's the collusion of economic prowess and governmental control creating one system to keep the populace in check for the elite to make money.
Mostly everyone in US politics is just a bought and payed for face to gain support in the country for laws no one wants, taxes no one likes, and a government that is far too out of control. Once you reach this political paradigm where government runs rampant, left and right no longer exist outside of rhetoric. It's all about the state, and the people who make money from the state.
If you don't think either of the "two" reigning political ideologies in America is just a farce, you're delusional and following step-in-toe behind the pied pipers herding people around.
It amazes me still to this day, that people care what politicians say and not what they do. You can say so called "liberals" are against the wars (even though after 4 years in power they have done nothing practical to stop them) and the war on drugs. You can say so called "conservatives" support the constitution and fight for the freedom of the American people as well as support the middle class and small businesses. Even though ALL actions a majority of these people make is completely contrary to what they say, people still believe in it.
What's worst is that people here actually believe in it. So much for denying ignorance.edit on 15-1-2011 by SpectreDC because: (no reason given)
