You won't understand my politics from thinking in the frame of Republican vs. Democrat. It's not an accurate frame for multiparty Germany nor for my own thinking with is even less based in the agenda of political parties.


My understanding of West European politics is that everyone is at or further to the left of the Democrats except for
1) parties that are reviled in the media
2) parties that are otherwise left-wing but have a prominent right-wing stance on one particular issue
3) government entities who have "right-wing" positions that are about more government control, such as being in favor of surveillance (and even Obama does that)

While that's true, that doesn't tell you what the actual political conflicts are.
"Yes, Minister" manages to be a great political comedy while never revealing whether the minister is Labour or Conservative.

That's because a lot of political questions just aren't well understood in terms of left vs. right. You ignore a lot of important issues if you try to understand politics through the lense of left vs. right.
