Well, this is it......


The right wants to regulate personal freedom, especially if it allows for more corporate profit....

The left wants regulations the public actually benefits from....that also protect personal freedoms and rights.

Though here we have the democratic party posing as the left, but they are probably more about profit as well.

And what freedoms would those be?

Hate crime laws, probably bans on junk food, more gun laws, regulating free enterprise out of business, etc..

The left's ultimate sociesty would be the USSR all over again.

There are plenty on the right who want to legislate sex marriage, abortion and birth control, where mosques can be built, and I personally know quite a few who are quite vocal about how atheists should not be allowed to teach or hold a government office. The right tends to want to ban things just as much as the left, it is just different things based on different perceptions of what is in the interest of the nation's future.

One side thinks good old fashioned values make a nation better, and one side thinks constantly striving to be all inclusive will make the nation better.

There are plenty of examples in the past that can be used to blast either side.
