A descriptor of a socioeconomic standpoint in politics.

A common misconception is to assume being "Right Wing" as being a completely defined political standpoint, when really you can be Right Wing on one of two scales; Social and Economic.

Social Scale: To be Right Wing on a social scale is to endorse primarily Authoritarian form of government, i.e placing importance in Discipline, the Armed Forces and Sovereignty. See British parties such as the BNP and to more extreme extent the National Front (NF) and Column 88/Combat 18.

Economic Scale: To be Right Wing from an economic standpoint is to be supportive of what is a traditionally Conservative position; that is support of small central government with more devolved power to individual states (in the USA) and more economic freedoms. It follows that while the economically right wing party supports a more lucrative trade system in which the market is largely competition-based rather than controlled by the government (meaning that Conservatives generally prefer to let competing corporations "battle it out" rather than tax or legislate them), this generally leads to less social values in terms of public services and equality between the social classes. One such party that endorses this view in the UK are the aforementioned Conservatives.

It is possible to be Right Wing in both a social and economic way, or only on one scale, which is why being "Right Wing" should not be synonymous with racism, fascism or simply Adolf Hitler.
"As a Conservative, I believe that public services should be privatised to allow more economic freedom. Therefore I am Economically Right Wing."

"I believe that National Service should be compulsory in the UK. I am also Anti-EU. Therefore I am Socially Right Wing."

Known as Hard-Liners in most political parties around the word. In United States it’s ideology for traditional values is it’s basis. Modern day right wing Republicans are controlled by the Christian ideology.
The right wing of the Republicain Party secret motto for you is to REPRODUCE, OBEY, and CONSUME.

Right wings are the equivalent to the Dark Side in Star Wars. Secretive, brash, heartless, bent on pointless tradition. The right wing, or conservative (anti-progressive) party, is a collection of wealthy politicians seated through social promotion, private lobbying, and secretive associations. Right wingers favor small and weak governments that can be easily controlled by wealthy capitalists, and in doing so protect their own interests and those of their political allies. A right winger is quick to judge, slow to concede, and impossible to converse with. (See Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Ronald Reagan, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, & Fox News) There may be some exceptions to the generalization.

A term used to describe people who are so poor that they can't afford a proper education, diminishing their ability to think independently and as a result often end up working low paid manual labour jobs while blaming their inequality on foreign immigrants.
