    He tripled it that is outrageous and more than anyone else in history.

    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Federal Budget Deficit For 2009 Projected To Triple Previous Record


    The federal budget deficit for 2009 will reach a record $1.6 trillion, far higher than 2008ís record deficit of $455 billion, according to both the OMB and CBO.

    RealClearPolitics - Obama Cedes the Center


    The White House now dismisses Tuesday's losses as the reflection of "local issues" -- as though the Virginia outcome was determined by zoning disputes on the proposed site of a new 7-Eleven. When one of the primary concerns of the electorate is the direction of the economy, all politics is national.

    By creating deficits unequaled as a percentage of the economy since World War II, by proposing to nearly triple the national debt in the next 10 years, by using the economic crisis as an excuse for the massive expansion of government authority over health care, Obama has become a polarizing figure. Of course, some Republicans thrive on ideological combat and would seek it even if unprovoked. But it is Obama's tax-and-spend ambitions that have united Republicans of every stripe in opposition, put fiscally conservative Democrats in an impossible bind, and ceded the economic center to Republican candidates in Virginia and New Jersey.

    What is the basis of the modern one dimensional political spectrum? Academically, the left-right political spectrum is still related to equality. I rarely hear this basis defined which leaves people prone to manipulation. People hear a pundit say fascism is left-wing and it serves its purpose to discourage people from considering left-wing ideology.

    The scale to which I'm referring is based on Government interaction or involvement. Hence Anarchy being extreme right and Authoritarian being extreme left.

    A scale created by libertarians to make themselves feel better.

    It makes sense to me :\ Modern Liberalism seeks to have more government intervention and conservatism seeks to have less.

    It makes sense to you. Well if it makes sens to you, by all means, let's all adopt it!

    Modern Conservativesm, the same people who bring up anti-sodomy laws and oppose marriage equality, who want to regulate abortion, who in power often give corporations huge tax breaks and subsidaries, who argue for a larger military, who want schools to have public prayer?

    That's just the scale that I've seen used a number of places, besides that 2d one and such.

    I see what you're saying...Though "Modern" anything isn't what it might have been. Clearly this is the case with many Political ideologies and Politicians. I can call myself whatever I want, doesn't mean I'm a shining example of that ideology.

    It's usually used in a more complex way than you're suggesting.

    Are you trying to say the majority of modern "conservatives" aren't really "conservatives"?
