America is a center-right Nation? Absolutely FALSE

Well, that didn't take long. We already have the new meme flowing from Karl Rove and others on the right, "America is a center-right nation."

Bull crap.

Conservatives are a minority in America but they'll never admit it. Not only that, but when you ask people plain questions, it is clear from their answers that Americans are simply not idealogical conservatives. From the highly regarded Pew Research Center comes, not the idea but the fact, that we are quite Liberal as a nation:

The number of people who think government has the responsibility to take care of people who can't take care of themselves is 70%.

The number of people who would prefer a smaller government is 57%. (The Federal government shrinks under Democrats and swells under Republicans...Did you know that?)

The number of people who think corporations are too powerful and should be restrained is 65%.

The number of people who think Labor Unions are necessary to protect the working person is 68%.

The number of people who think stronger laws are needed to protect our environment is 83%.

The number of people who think we should put more emphasis on fuel conservation and alternative energy than in drilling for more oil is 69%.

The number of people who would be willing to pay more for products and services in order to protect the environment is 60%.

The number of people who support government funded health insurance for all citizens is 66%.

Two thirds of Americans solidly support Liberal ideas, concepts, and programs that would greatly benefit the vast majority of citizens. Do you know who would lose a little bit of money if these programs were enacted?

Very, very, rich people and those who serve them.

America is a very Liberal Nation, and don't you let anyone tell you otherwise.

Our mainstream media is picking up the chant they've been handed by the neo-conservative noise machine. But now, when you hear anyone say we are a center right nation, you will know better than to believe them or trust them any more.

All you have to say is, "No it's not."

America is different from what we have been told. As someone recently said..

"America is better than these last eight years!"


Peace,

Steve
