    Hello?

    It was the Right the fended off Al Gore's efforts to steal the election in Floriduh! that would have put Al Gore in the White House.

    It was the Right the tried to defend against Al Franken's theft of a US Senate seat.

    It was the Democrats pushing these acts of ant-democracy fraud.

    He is not a libertarian. Libertarians don't promote the causes he does, not a chance.

    You didn't answer my question:
    When was the last time that the United States needed defending and the
    'far left' did not defend the U.S.A.?
    -
    So, you didn't like it when the far left was pro war against Hitler?

    I fixed it for you. No need to thank me.

    Hmm...Reagan was pretty far right...and I don't know about you but that quote seems to show that the right thinks democracy is something worth defending.

    Oh the blatant eye scarring irony of a phony independant who is really a severe right-winger calling someone else out on their affliation.

    Your definition of "right" is disturbing then.

    Insane deficits and debts (at the time), massive government, policies that kept stagflation going, unsustainable military buildup way in excess of what was necessary to stop a conventional Soviet attack, foreign interventions all over the planet, terrorist funding and overthrowing legitimate democratic regimes in South America...

    "Far Right"

    huh.

    "Far Right"
    Who do you see as "far right"?The deficits and debts were caused by increased military spending, which were justified considering that the United States was in the midst of the Cold War. Stagflation ended under Reagan, it did not continue. Inflation was dramatically reduced from 13.58 under Carter's last year to 4.08 at the end of Reagan's last year. In 1986 the inflation rate was only 1.91.*
    *source
    From the period of 1983-1990 the real GDP grew 35%. 20 million jobs were created. Between 1980-1990 Federal revenues increased by 28%. However, as a percentage of the GDP revenues decreased 0.9%**
    There is much more about Reagan's success **here.
    If you are referring to the Iran Contra Affair, the general consensus has been that Reagan didn't know about it, but he should have. Look up the Tower Commission for information on that.

    The word "Conservative" quite obviously means to Conserve. For the most part the Right is trying to conserve the policies that have kept us safe for over 200 years.
    The Left (generalizing) believes the world is a place that can be peaceful with no war and a place where all can be friends, as many of us know, that is simply not true.

    Extremism is bad. Period.

    I could not vote for one, so I didn't.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”
