    You don't even possess any comprehension of the left vs right debate then.

    As I said, the things he talked about would actually be libertarian. Left wingers don't have a problem with what happened at Waco. Libertarian ideology is typically portrayed as being on the right. It's not about the final position, but instead about the reasoning that leads there. His reasoning is right-wing, small government reasoning.

    Also, just because Christianity wasn't his motivation doesn't mean he wasn't on the right. Being christian is not a right-wing ideology.

    I prefer to place him in the fanatical nut job catagory. I really don't think he had a Bush/Qualye pin on when he hit the trigger.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    And they can fall anywhere on the spectrum.

    Highly doubtful, but some people would consider Bush as being fairly centrist.

    True enough.

    Actually I see him (H.W., and W. for that matter) to be progressive. And that is not a good thing. Remember H.W. was the first to openly speak of the 'New World Order'....

    While it was retliatory, he also sought to push his political agenda through fear as well.
    I didn't see any mention of this 'fear' agenda, only the retaliatory part.

    Perhaps Left Wingers don't have a problem with what happened at Waco because the killing of these people occurred during the Clinton Administration.

    Then I wish he'd stop releasing all those audio/video clips referencing stuff that is currently happening around the world. It's getting on my nerves.
