I found this site over a decade ago and went back to it recently to investigate some items. I found this chart of the most recent election.
Ever since my college class of American History I realized that the Democrats and the Republicans are actually both "right" on the political spectrum. I know we here in America call one side Left and the other Right, but on the larger scale of political views, Democrats and Republicans are actually both on the right.
I am reminded of the country of my wife, El Salvador, where they have 12 political parties trying to fight for the Presidency. I also have brother-in-laws in Costa Rica with just as many political parties. It's all very confusing because coming from America we are actually taught incorrectly and seeing such a large scale spectrum of political views is overwhelming for the first time.
We in America have shit so backwards some times. We get set in our ways and we think that the Earth revolves around us. We think we have been doing "whatever" for so long that it is the only way things are done.
We have a lot to learn as Americans. It should be mandatory that students travel the world to get some of their credits for graduation. It might help us create a better society.
Free will is an illusion. People always choose the perceived path of greatest pleasure.
