The left or the Right. What side of the political spectrum are you on
After you read through the list i would like to see where everyone is at and why.
The mainstream media – including Fox
News, Limbaugh and the big-time media that calls itself "Christian" – would have you think that the
grand battle is between the left and the right.
This is such a lie.
Here are some examples.
GW Bush outspent Clinton by $1
trillion per year and continued every last federal welfare program – and added
a few of his own – and left-wingers hated him.
Obama has continued all of Bush’s
wars – and added a few more – and right-wingers hate him.

want us to panic and give up our freedom out of fear of global warming.
want us to panic and give up our freedom out of fear of terrorism.

want to ban online poker.

has its chicken hawks.
The left has

has Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, John McCain
and countless others.
No matter which wing gets the
upper hand in government, the result is the same: perpetuation of the
As Butler Shaffer once wrote, “Left and Right are only two wings on the same bird of prey.”
The hypocrisy is endless.
the words of REM, elections
anymore are just tournaments of lies.
As I wrote just before the 2008 election: “Ultimately, the same people run the show. They set up
this false left-right paradigm and get people fighting endlessly over
meaningless junk. There is a great line in Macbeth about "a tale Told by
an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing." The real problem is
not the media, Washington, Hollywood, etc. The real problem is that so many
people are so willing to believe what their chosen spinmeisters tell them, no
matter how absurd.”
