It's not quite as simple as that. On the left side of the political spectrum, there is support for abortion, higher taxes, support for labor unions, environmentalism, gay rights, and gun control; in other words, all things "progressive.' On the right, there is support for rights for the unborn, lower taxes, an environment more favorable for business, and support for the second amendment and a stronger military; in other words, all things "traditional."
