A nonexistent political spectrum on the North American continent due to monstrous shifting to the right.
"Matt Stone and Trey Parker aren't right wing douchebags! They're centrists and lampoon the extremists on both sides!"

"In this country, assuming a centrist position makes you right wing. A true left wing extremist is something you've never seen, and wouldn't know if one snuck up and smacked you on the back of the skull with a picket sign."

During the French Revolution, peasants and others not represented by the other estates sat in the left wing (in contrast to the nobility who sat in the right wing). To this day, the left wing continues to represent minorities and the common people.

The Poltical side which is good for whichever country they live in as opposed to the Right wing who are bad for it. The Left wing is always working to even out the poverty gap so the world becomes a fairer place but Right wing greed always gets in the way. The Left Wing are working to produce a system where everyone is accepted but Right wing intollerance always gets in the way. In history the Right wing has been the side responsible for poverty (their stupid anti tax shit like the rich need the money more than hospitals, starving people etc need it.), war persecution and intollerance (their belief that everyone who isn't them is evil which still continues today through their fucking "moral highground"), One day the right wing will be responsible for the end of the world as they believe that its ok to show a ONE DAY FATAL TO US ALL disregard for the environment and CAUSES SUFFERING TO MILLIONS disregard for every non western country just so those already with too much money can have even more and pose with stupid big cars.

In short the Right wing have made a mess of this world and The left Wing are still trying to clear it up. Unfortunately they can't be left too it without the Right Wing messing it up even more.

Left wing is a very generic term to describe a political position relative to what is currently accepted as the general consensus. Contrary to popular belief left-wing extremist are as common and possible and extreme as right-wing extremists. If you are left thinking you generally aspire to state-control and inclusiveness regardless of others. If you are right thinking you generally aspire to freedom and responsibility with a few strict rules - life is what you make it and there is no welfare-state to rely on.
Left, center-left, center-right, right - all quite generic terms to describe a political standpoint. Lenin is an example of someone on the extreme left.

Left wing is considered the Liberals or Democrats; they typically feel like the rich should help pay the way for the poor. They are anti-constitutional (especially 1st amendment and 2nd amendment). They believe in Medicaid, Medicare, and welfare. They think that because they have made a good life for themselves they should be obligated to pay more in taxes (hence more to welfare). They think everyone should share what they made while the liberals sit on there asses and think how can we get the rich to pay us more money.
Hey John you made $100,000 this year, you will have to pay AMT taxes. You are making to much money, you will have to pay more in taxes to help the poor who sit on their asses and collect welfare. They made four more kids so now they collect even more in welfare. All the while they just have more and more kids so that the rich have to pay their way more and more. As a left winged liberal we should "share and share alike"

Hey Susie I see you got a 4.0 in college, you did to good share some of that with Tom so he can go to better school. You see Tom sat around and partied through college only earning a 2.0. Susie should give Tom 1.0 that way they both have a 3.0. "Share and share alike" is what we left winged liberals say
