The debate over what it means to be left or right has been made about as convoluted an argument as there is but it is actually quite simple and can be boiled down to a couple significant differences. Left means collectivism and a strong central government while Right means individualism and a weak central government. Straight forward, simple and to the point. All issues can be approached from those two basic sets of beliefs. The left believes in numerous strong gun regulations because they put their faith in the State the Right believes in the 2nd Amendment because they put theirs in the individual.

How can I make this claim especially when liberals are constantly calling people like me fascist, racist and etc? Well that is proof number one.

You see when you don’t do something that a Conservative wants you to do they try to talk you into it where a leftist forces you to do so through legislation intimidation boycotts protests work interruptions and etc. Continue reading →
