"also made by someone with a bit of a left bias."

And what if it turned out it was made by Ann Freaking Coulter?

This is all political hogwash anyway. Who in their right minds would absolutely conform to a stereotype of the "left" or "right"? Societies need a healthy balance in order to accomplish anything, and as long as we put our beliefs into unshakable undeterred charts we will remain programmed robots by generations before us.

I hate that crap where criminals are victims. They chose to break the law, the only victims are the victims of criminals.

Both parties are horrible. The democrats have a good idea, the republicans disagree because its what they think its what they get paid to do. The republicans have a good idea, the democrats disagree because they think its what they get paid to do.

Its just like the old joke, pro is the opposite of con, so progress is the opposite of congress.

This chart is fairly inaccurate. Of course, political parties in themselves are so contradictory and hipocritical that it`s tough to keep track of what they want. Ideally, though:
"Right Goverment" does interfere with society and social lives. If you don`t live accoring to their morals that they kept from several decades ago, you`re not even human.
"Left Goverment" as a fufilled adult, doesn`t approve of any vocation since everyone would be on welfare. There would be no prerequisites for welfare applications either, so feel free to waste that tax money and support a drug addiction of some kind.
This doesn`t always apply though, since right wing people can be rural and intolerant or urban and rich with a "screw the poor mentality". Similarly, left wing people can be urban and progessive or rural tree huggers.

Clearly it is commie leftist hippies trying to seduce our clean cut American youths into a death spiral of drugs and sex.

OK, in addition to being old, it is way wrong on both sides of the charts. The best book I ever read is "Conflict of Visions" by Thomas Sowell. He attempts to describe the differences dispassionately, and I think he was successful.

In short (and this is an over simplification), it comes down to whether or not humans are "perfectible". Conservatives generally believe humans are inherently flawed, and that the best way to get desirable social results is systemic processes that allow society to evolve naturally, whether it`s justice, economy, or whatever. Liberals generally believe that humanity can someday reach near perfection, and that society should be lead by those people who are most enlightened and knowledgeable. Systemic processes are not preferred because they may constrain the leaders and slow the pace of social improvements.

Dr. Sowell`s book takes the discussion to the real roots without getting bogged down in specific issues

DiePSPolice

Only most of those "rights" the left supposedly supports are meaningless, or in fact as easily construed as restrictions on rights. Marriage is a largely religious concept; many if not most on the right couldn`t care if you allow civil partnership. Why should a gay person have more rights over the language than a believer in the religion that has had the concept for centuries as a core part of the dogma?

The rights of a mother to abortion certainly curtails any rights we chose to allow to the foetus. While I personally don`t agree with the most extreme interpretations of foetus rights either way, but you can hardly make out this is a definitively liberal position.

Drugs actually become a public-policy issue largely because of left-wing policy. If we didn`t have to look after everyone who was destroying their own lives libertarians like I, and I suspect many conservatives, would be far more supportive of complete legalization of the means

@DiePSPolice: Lefties as a whole are NOT against guns. We`re against assault rifles and million round clips, ammo that can pierce kevlar, and anything else not needed for hunting. Personally I believe you can own any gun you want, I just worry about when they`re stolen from you.

There`s a bunch missing from both factions but, the huge worldwide baby raping epidemic by catholic priests should at the least cause pause, but doesn`t seem to even faze the sheeple. It doesn`t even make them nudge or budge. Greedy, soulless and most certainly godless are the lot of those right wingers.

@bordo: the left does value personal freedom, just like the right; it`s just that the two don`t agree on what. e.g. the right for gay people to marry each other, the right for a woman to have an abortion, etc.. Typically lefties would tend to be for the legalization of drugs as well. The right wants to limit all those rights because they think it`s "morally wrong". It`s not really any different than lefties wanting to limit the right of gun ownership because they think it`s "worse for society" for people to be armed.

Lefties and righties are all humans, and we tend to want to do what we think is good for the country and it`s people. Neither side is a bunch of murderous animals. You just have to see the other side`s point of view.

Contrary to this graphic you have a lot of company on the right. Many of us (some of whom would describe themselves as libertarian, some as conservative) have very similar views.

I`m pretty much in the middle on most of these issues. I usually find that either extreme tends to have some serious deficiencies.

A big problem with the way many people view politics is that they think there is always a right or a wrong answer. There is no such thing as right and wrong most of the time, and we must deal with not only the positive, but also the negative consequences of whatever we put into law.

Idealism and reality don`t mix too well.

Oh, dear. Anything that puts "personal freedom" aas a goal of the left is clearly written by someone who has never actually met anyone from the left (somehow I don`t think he means the leftist`s goal is his own freedom at the expense of others).

One for all and all for one, yes as the leftist is the one.

Champions of downtrodden? OK, as long as they remain downtrodden.

Pacifist? Obviously never been to a left-wing demonstration. Maybe talking about those great left-wing pacifists, the Stalinists, Maoists and Nazis.

As for right-wing - nationalists right-wing? Try telling the BNP in England! Somewhat to the left of the Labour Party!

Need I say more?

Why do people post such over-simplified, one-sided, politically distorted claptrap?

In this case I`m strongly Republican. Help those who help themselves, because social programs need to be cut. They`re far too easy to abuse. And I think that if you`re taking time to help yourself, you should be helped, but noone really does when you can get more money from unemployment than from a minimum wage job.

You know that a republic has nothing to do with republicans, and a democracy has nothing to do with a democrat. Second our nation is a democratic republic, that is we elect individuals to represent us. A true democracy takes the input of all people, and a true republic has a group of people that maintain supreme control over the state.

Just a thought here but in the age of modern communication, I believe that we can make our government more of a democracy giving the people and not the politicians a say in what we do.

Hmm democrats and Communist paired together...
Also- a little reminder- I think most of us have pledged "and to the republic" not to the democracy... a person is only as good as their word and so you can only be good if you stick to your word. Our forefathers chose the concept of republic as the foundation of this country- the deviation from which is what undermines our greatness.
