Origin of Left & Right...

cinbadl 2012/07/31 18:08:29

Have you ever wondered why it is that Conservatives are
called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left."

By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:

"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart
of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)

Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen. Can't get any simpler than that.

Now a spelling lesson-------

The last four letters in American..........I Can
The last four letters in Republican.......I Can
The last four letters in Democrats.........Rats

End of lesson. Test to follow in November, 2012.

Remember, November is to be set aside as "Rodent
Removal Month".

    So seeing as you like "history" so much can you tell me when conservatives decided to be the group that always sides with the bigot?

    Actually they do support the republican part and the "black panther" is just as igaignificant as the other three. Ps you do realize that in many ways what Romney is planning on doing is exactly what obama is doing? It's kinda funny when you read their plans from a third part perspective. Anywhoo this is all pointless anyways I don't enjoy political debates here always results to stupid name calling at one point so I bid you farewell.

    The southern democrats were conservatives by the way, once upon Btims the republicans were liberal and democrats were the more conservative over time as the issues and membership changed so did they, but as insaid this is pointless and his post obviously hasn't gained attention so it's doubly pointless goodbye.
