Why the left may want Bush to stay to the right

yes, Bush has the evangelicals and far right securely on his side, but there also seems to be a large number of "old school" republicans (John McCain) who hesitantly still support him for more traditional republican values like smaller government and lower taxes. What happens if Bush really digs his feet in and works to bring as many right wing social changes as he can this term? the conditions have never been better to actually implement some of the policies that the right has been touting for years (school prayer, abortion, gay rights, etc). Would Republicans then lose their credibility with their more moderate supporters in the next election? On the other hand, Bush could really transform his administration (shift in iraq strategy, getting rid of ashcroft and rumsfeld) and pursue a more moderate agenda. Would moderates and even liberals then wonder if it's really that bad? thus leading the way to a long conservative reign in America...?

Either way, it still the same people behind the scenes controlling our lives. We will never have real freedom until we take the two party system...and it might take a war to do it.

Until Americans are pushed to the extreme edge, we are too fat, lazy, and comfortable to fight.
