Default Re: Liberals more liberal, conservatives more conservative?

I'm not entirely sure the country is moving left as a whole. I actually think what is happening is the far poles of each party, the real fringy hardcore envelope pushing radicals are gaining some juice, and that weirdo radicalism tends to spill over a little into the more moderate elements. I think that's what the spirit of this article is as well: If you're a little left or a little right, the mere act of sparring with the opposition galvanizes each side and drives people away from the center and more towards the far edges of ideology...

What do you feel are the fringy/ hardcore/radical positions on the right?

The way I see it Revs, a lot of things that were considered radical left fringe 40 years ago are now becoming mainstream for the liberals.

And I think things that were considered main stream conservative/republican are now viewed as radical.

I agree with you GB. I feel that as a true conservative, I have lost my party. I believe I would gladly switch to a 3rd party that has a sound conservative platform, and will if I find one that I am more comfortable with than I am the Republican party.

I respect that
Does he? I have watched and listened to him a few times and I like him. His views seem like "common sense" to me.

I'm talking about the radicals, the fascists and extremists (like Aryans, guys who bomb abortion clinics, etc...), BUT, to a lessor extent, I'm also talking about the unbending extremists, the guys who want to outlaw ALL abortions, even the ones that save mothers lives, the same kinds of guys who blow up abortion clinics. The guys who want their wives to walk 3 paces behind them. That kind of extreme right winger...

I agree Revs. That 3 steps behind thing is kind of creepy. Maybe it's just me, but anything less than 5 steps and I feel "crowded".

I agree with GB...i think the country as a whole is moving towards the left...there is no personal accountability anymore, no values anymore, no discipline instilled in our children anymore, too much political correctness and not enough punishment for our actions
