    Social policy is center left and fiscal policy is center right.

    Ten years ago I would've agreed with you, but we're right around center for economic policy now. We're shifting dangerously toward center-left.

    No we are not. If you look at Obamacare for instance, it does not do what it was supposed to do. It will be very rightish in its effect.

    It really depends on what your compass looks like. Fascism isn't right-wing on my compass.

    Massive corporate subsidies are.

    I wish you were right, for the sake of your country and for the economies of the world that are affected by the American economy. I believe that people with money, people who have a personal stake in the health of your country, are fiscally center right, but far too many people in America are becoming dependents of the nation and as the scales tip in that direction more and more people will think more about their personal survival than the survival of the country. I hope I'm wrong.

    It's not coming down to subsidies. It's going to come down to socialized medicine in the guise of "insurance".

    Subsidies would be if private sector policies were considered "legal" under the new doctrine. We're seeing that this won't be the case.

    America has a bronze age economy in an iron age world. Our economic prowress simply won't survive. It is not a matter of if but when.
