So Bill Oreilly is a moderate, the teabaggers have been added to the right wing and liberals are
now socialists. Somehow the Koch's have grown the size of the political spectrum. Why? Because all that was left after the fall of fascism and the fall of communism was the small spectrum of liberal democracies each with a mixed market economy. It was a narrow field. All liberal. And all the western countries fitted into model. And the other countries in the world all aspired to be like the west.

The 4 political parties on the left in Canada now all talk about almost the same policies. Even the conservatives in canada have been feigning liberal policies. And we end up with minority governments in Canada and Great Britain. But minorities do not allow for right wing policies when most of the parties are liberal (Canadian conservative leader Stephen Harper has only been able to implement small neocon changes in Canada in 4 years). And the koches want drastic change in the USA. They cannot do that unless they control what the minority party in the middle is. And they are making it a conservative one in the USA. Then they'll have power in congress in perpetuity.

1. Moderate compared to a RWinger. Can be reasonable.
Anymore Moderate can mean so many different
things.

Since Social Justice is my way of dllentiating
I would say OReilly is a reasonable Conservative
Not a Conservative Ideologue.

2. Of course the tea bag party and the conservative party would congress to get a single nominee for
the presidency.

Calling Obama, or any liberal, a socialist is also another good reason why the GOP has been attacking the word 'liberal' over the years.
