the paranoid style in American politics

this is, in essence, the difference between the left and the right.

The left believes that the right, while totally wrong, is trying to do what they feel is best for the country.

The right believes that the left, is involved in a massive conspiracy to destroy their way of life.

This can be seen perfectly with the ludicrous 'controversy' about the president speaking to the students of the country. The left would never have protested in this way if Bush had wanted to speak to the nation's children. They may have whined, they may have said something like...'I don't want my kid listening to that idiot'...but they NEVER would have suggested that Bush was going to try to brainwash their kids and turn them against their country.

I meant to comment on this DAYS ago.

I think it has a lot to do with either religion or with the way of thinking that leads to religion (chicken or egg?)

It's a lot easier for people like that to believe in big massive unseen forces manipulating the things around them
