    How would you define the term?
    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).

    In this context, political extremism.

    Kind of a floppy term. I'm sure then by your own context you yourself are a wingnut.

    It is a floppy term, and no, I do not think I am an extremist. I am well to the left, but not to the outskirts of the left.

    As self defined though. I wouldn't imagine most people would admit to being a wingnut if asked themselves.

    Do you think I am extremely far to the left?

    Wanting to build a fence across 2000 miles of mostly uninhabited, unpatrolable, unwelcoming territory seems pretty nutty to me.

    Ineffective as well. Fences will not stop people from entering illegally. This is one I find particularly nutty, as well as the Sanctity of Life Act.
