The picture to the right depicts the limits of the power to govern.
Note: liberal and conservative have nothing to do with it. Rulers law is where the so-called ruler/dictator is in control of everything, including individuals. No law means every individual fence for himself for survival, including shelter, food and protection.
This picture is the Generic Political Spectrum indoctrinated/taught to us by the media and our Educations. It has Communism on one end and Nazism (Fascism) on the other end. Both ultimately are for big government run by a dictatorship or oligarchy. In one case the Government persuades the companies to enforce Government. While in the other case, Government uses force to enforce Government. What I'm saying is: both ends of this chart are the same. The chart is a deception.
The Implemented/Real Basic Political Spectrum
The real Basic Political Spectrum is From 100% rule of a dictatorship(Total Gov) to 0% like that of Anarchy(NO Gov). What is in between you ask? Everything. Establishment government (both GOP And Dems)are both to the left of the center point. US Constitution is center.
As you can see, we are getting dangerously close to being a Dictatorship. This country has been using force to redistribute wealth for generations.
The tale of Left vs. Right
The tale of Left vs. Right is what THEY used to divide and conquer us. As you can see in this picture (the so called Generic Political Spectrum), THEY have distorted reality. What this drawing shows as extremes is in fact the same point on the "Basic Political Spectrum" shown above! YOU HAVE BEEN DUPED!
Although, the this so-called Loft-Right political spectrum Is our creation. Our creation because of the Culture we nurture. In fact, it accurately reflects the careful, artificial polarization of the population on phony Issues that prevents the issue of our power from arising in their minds.
And Democracy is just a Stepping Stone to Communism!. This from https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1848/communist-manifesto/ch02.htm.
What's Really Crazy
And what's really crazy is that we have jumped on board this deception with both feet. To explain:
Author David Brin warned that "self-righteous indignation" has become an addiction that is gripping America and is worse that "heroin, cocaine, and alcohol combined." Brin explained that the thrill derived from being sanctimonious was beneficial in previous years when warfare was more commonplace, but has become crippling to the psyche of the modern population and has given rise to an "outrage industry" which fuels political polarization. "If you're constantly returning to the sense of pleasure that you get from being so right," he cautioned, "there is a real chance that you're a junkie." He blamed this paradigm for causing the death of negotiation and the inability to spawn conversations about problems which "could easily be solved if we just talked to each other."

This for segment from the book - The Five Thousand Year Leap by Skousen, W. Cleon (2013-09-09)
Part of the genius of the Founding Fathers was their political spectrum or political frame of reference. It was a yardstick for the measuring of the political power in any particular system of government. They had a much better political yardstick than the one which is generally used today. If the Founders had used the modern yardstick of "Communism on the left" and "Fascism on the right," they never would have found the balanced center which they were seeking.
Dictionary Definitions of the words
First Political Definitions
These are the five primary types of political systems that have existed in the past.
1. Monarchy is a form of government in which sovereignty is actually or nominally embodied in one individual reigning until death or abdication.
2. Oligarchy is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people.
3. Democracy - government by the people; especially : rule of the majority.
4. Republic is a sovereign state or country which is organized with a form of government in which power resides in elected individuals representing the citizen body and government leaders exercise power according to the rule of law.
5. Anarchy is absence of government and absolute freedom of the individual
As history unfolds, there is a cycle of these political systems. Anarchy turns into a Republic. Republic slips into democracy. Democracy slips into oligarchy. And finally one man takes over the whole show. But then of course the people rebel and it goes back to anarchy again.
Note:The above definitions and picture are political, below the definitions are economic. These economic systems operate within the political systems. Capitalism is most often within a Republic.
1. Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.
2. The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.
1. A theoretical economic system characterized by the collective ownership of property and by the organization of labor for the common advantage of all members.
2. a. A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.
2. b. The Marxist-Leninist version of Communist doctrine that advocates the overthrow of capitalism by the revolution of the proletariat.
A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
An economic system in which the means of production and distribution are privately or corporately owned and development occurs through the accumulation and reinvestment of profits gained in a regulation free environment.
In short, this would be Capitalism with Favoritism by the government to companies that cooperate with the government's view and or just out right corruption.
The Eventual Outcome of Extreme Government Structures
The Dictatorship will spin like a Top until it topples over. And it will topple over since one cannot support all. While the Anarchy will moves slow and eventually be over run since there are to few people at the top of it to defend it. Some sort of happy medium must be found.
Exodus 18:1-27 outlines how God thinks government should be. Hey, that is a Republic.
And when the Dictatorship topples, Anarchy is left in it's wake. A new cycle of Political Power is started. Anarchy is not going two exist for long before someone takes over or invades.
Our system of government was never intended to be a democracy. Although many believe that we live in one, they have never been asked to vote on the decisions made by said government. Yet they believe that they are empowered just the same.
Republic vs Democracy
How the "Generic Political Spectrum" has been Used against You
Having been immersed in the left/right facade their entire lives, many have begun to see the world and those around them through that prism. Either someone is on the same "side" as they are, or they are the enemy. There is no room for nuance, no subtle distinctions to be made, no room for alliance or cooperation on matters of great import. Perhaps most devastatingly, there is now little room for any analysis of the powers behind the political throne, the oligarchical financial interests that could care less whether this or that President has a "D" or an "R" next to their name, whether a Prime Minister is "Labour" or "Conservative," whether an MEP identifies with the "left" or the "right." Deprived of this understanding of the real nature of political power, the public is truly powerless to identify the real problem at the root of today's political crisis, let alone even begin to address it.
Mind Control in American Politics Short Version corbettreport
The Democratic Representatives tend to be the Left/Progressive/Communist/liberals(whatever that means) leaders. My point is that the Dems do have a clear agenda; as they should. The GOP is the supposedly more conservative/right leaders. They like to be seen as the compromisers, which makes them worthless. And GOPers also come in all the favors the Dems do.
Why is it that no matter whether Democrats or Republicans win the presidency, our country continues to suffer? The answer to this question reveals a stealthy shift that has occurred in American politics involving both parties, resulting from a shift of the NeoConservatives from one party to the other.
View this video to learn about the surprisingly radical roots of NeoConservatives, how to identify them, and what you can do to help America restore its lost liberties.

More Background Information
As you can see, there is no practical difference between Dems and GOP, both ultimately are for big government. Comparing Big Govt Fascism to Big Govt Communism; well one case the Govt persuades the company to toe the line, while the other case Govt uses force. Either way it is big government control. Thus anyone caught comparing Dems/GOP as left or right is part of the problem.
