Nonsense.
Coyote, am I correct that there are many on the right side who think it's the left side that is drifting into Fascism (I think Rush Limbaugh once buttoned off a caller, heatedly exclaiming "...why......You Nazi Communist!")?
It's curious that both sides feel this way. Curious and very sad.

Here is a better visualization.
Is that Jerry Pournelle, the science fiction writer?
Take a look and if you think it is worth discussing I'd be happy to join you on a new thread.
ps. There are other such political charts out there that might be interesting to discuss as well.
Such as Message 37 and Message 41 from the Political Compass thread earlier.
This Pournelle Chart is hard for me to figure where I am. Maybe somewhere half-way between the Socialists and the Various Libertarians, above the Welfare Liberals. Maybe call it 3.0 horizontally and 3.8 vertically?

Not so sure this is good enough (being very old and trod-on dirt from way back, but):
Page not found | Fatherly Advice and Rants
After a while it gets tedious. Some of the ones I liked:
"When your cat has fallen asleep on
your lap and looks utterly content and adorable you will
suddenly have to go to the bathroom."
"The cream rises to the top.
So does the scum."
"The first ninety percent of the task takes ninety percent of the
time, and the last ten percent takes the other ninety percent."
"In order to get a loan you must
first prove you don't need it."
"IMBESI'S LAW OF THE CONSERVATION OF FILTH
In order for something to become clean, something else
must become dirty."
"The first bug to hit a clean
windshield lands directly in front of your eyes."
....at which point I must ask "what was the last thing that come out of the bug's mouth when he hit the windshield?"

Re: Shameless self promotion
Got to see this finally. What I liked most of course was the delivery & timing.
