    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yeah, but Navy Pride is a little bit to the right of Genghis Khan.

    Right and left usually pertains to economics and power structure, their political philosophies and bases are very similar in both cases. It's more of a reference to who should have the power.

    social authoritarianism and libertarianism is different.

    Back then the "left" was accused of being monarchy-apologists very similar to how todays left is accused of being national government-apologists. I remember criticisms of Obama being a "King".

    Monarchism is a right-wing form of governance.

    It was a power structure... they weren't really Monarchist.... but for a strong economically sound national government, with debates on the power of the executive branch and others in relation to the states.

    Not really. There's a common trend in all left-wing philosophies: power to the people. The difference between the left and the right is the difference between a democracy and a republic. Or an anarchy and a monarchy. Communism and capitalism.

    I see you have trouble getting past the duality what you try to label everything as either left or right. The founders were very "left-wing" all believed power to the people. The power structure the left supports is of direct descendent of the Federalist party/Alexander Hamilton/John Adams.

    Right and left has no significance in meaning... the only thing you can pin down is economic right and left. Left more national economic control, right less.
