    Great, now we're falling back on George Orwell. Both liberal and conservative have their good and bad connotations, many of which are richly deserved. I think that much of the "liberalism" of the 60's was noble and richly overdue...while other elements of that liberalism were self serving and caused many of the problems this country now faces. Likewise, much of the Conservativism of the 50's was demonstrative of the heart of "American values", while many other elements of it were holdovers to an era of hatred and injustice. Basically, I think it all comes down to this...this nation was founded by Liberal minded Conservatives. They were open to exacting change, but that change was within a framework of rather conservative ideals. It was that balance which created the greatest nation on earth. Quite honestly, if we could get all the hard right and left wingers in this country on a sinking boat, we'd all live much easier, happier lives.
    Excellent post PhinPhan ....

    In my industry we incorporate the philosoophy of "top grading". It's where you replace the poorest producer with a higher producer, and then replace the NEXT poorest producer, with a higher producer, and so on. Get rid of the farthest left, and farthest right wing elements, and you'll still have a left and right wing....you'll just move progressively more towards the middle.

    The problem with that is .... we're talking about ideology here... not production.
    You'll never be able to "funnel" peoples beliefs like that...
