To mix some metaphors, we have a tiny left wing, an oversized right wing, and a center that the right wing likes to think is on the left.
No wonder we keep going in circles.
@KelsonV I used to be slightly left of center and have never been a member of any political party. 20 years ago I almost always mixed my votes among moderate to left-ish Democrats and moderate Republicans.
Then the GOP went hard right. They started calling people like me "leftists" and "socialists." It's gotten to the point that I believe them. My recent votes reflect that.
I'm not going in circles, although the US as a whole is. The GOP pushed me left.
