It means that if you were an American you would hate and fear both Trump, and AOC, and would be a Biden supporter. BFD! :lol:

I kind of like the term "politically homeless".

I really relate to that term.

The "right" and "left" ideas of political philosophy actually started dying a few decades ago, especially among younger people. It's not that uncommon anymore to find, for example, "right" wingers who still opposed abortion but support gay people. And "left" wingers who support abortion but oppose gay people. It's only people firmly still entrenched in the either-or of "right" and "left" that believe only right and left exist.

I really don't know where I stand on the political spectrum. It is problematic as I there are times when I agree with the Left but not those on the Far-Left and there are times when I agree with the people on the Right and don't agree with those on the racist Far-Right.


When I said I sometimes agree with the Left and not the Far-Left, I mean I don't agree with someone on the Far-Left who thinks Pol Pot was a great guy because he wasn't.
