Left and Right in America

This article make the interesting argument that America is a left-wing country with a right-centrist government.  Looking at the examples, that makes sense.  In particular, I note that the people with the most representation get taxed the least, whereas the people who get taxed the most have the least representation.  That pretty much recreates one of the key problems -- taxation without representation -- that America was founded to stop.
