The political concept of left vs right is killing the political process in this country because it convinces people that there are only two positions that you can have and you have to take up all other political beliefs associated with that side. In my experience, most people are liberals, communist, conservatives, libertarians, federalist, etc, etc, etc and each one of these different positions gets qualified as either left or right. A good example is libertarians and conservatives. These two groups might share a common vision of less government so they get labeled as being on the right but are these two groups exactly the same to the point where they should be a single political idealogy? Its just to narrow of a definition which forces people to support things that they might not normally support just because they have been associated with being on the left or right. What is needed is more variety and have five or six political philosophies in this country that way we can separate people more precisely about what they believe instead of trying to jam a million individual viewpoints into two pots.
