Americans claim to be a conservative bunch. For every 2 self-proclaimed right-wingers there is only 1 liberal.
Or so they say.
If that's the case, how do you explain the chart in this article?
Apparently, Americans want to keep or increase government spending in all areas except foreign aid.
Wow. What a bunch of Randian wackos we are, huh?
Makes me wonder if most people don't understand what the word 'liberal' means.
If only we had someone in a position of power who could help Americans understand what liberalism really is. Someone with access to the airwaves any time he wants. Someone famous for his ability to deliver rousing speeches that can move people to action.
I remember a guy like that from a few years back. Not sure what happened to him though.
