    Moving slowly to the left because, as the recent bailouts demonstrate, capitalism can't survive without socialism

    Unfortunately, the US is moving fast toward socialism (big government).

    But that's the wrong type of socialism that the US is moving towards! That's the soviet type of socialism-state capitalism-corporatism-olygarhy. That's sooo far from democratic socialism.

    as I see it.. to the right would mean a freer economic environment.. to the left would be a more controlled and regulated environment

    we sit firmly on the left now, and we are moving incrementally further to the far left.
