Left Wing USA

So the USA has elected a left wing President in Barack Obama and has, as a nation, it seems 'gone left wing.'

But how left wing?

Obama says that he wants to 'hunt down and kill' Osama Bin Laden.
He's also in favour of the death penalty (for his own citizens as well I mean).

Pretty left wing kinda guy then.

Meanwhile in liberal, hippy, ultra left wing California they have just voted, in a referendum, to ban gay marriages.

Yes the good old US of A has definitely positively surged to the left!

There's nothing remotely right wing about hunting down and killing bin Laden - common sense, if you ask me.

You're right about the other examples, mind you.

I don't think that hunting down and killing a fellow human being is a particularly left wing thing - more your right wing hang 'em and flog 'em brigade really.

Although with Bin Laden I agree with you that it it common sense!
