    Ladies and Gentlemen, this is what is considered a poorly formed trap.

    For all the closet Repubs who use the term "far left" on this board--
    --could you please name one single actual POLICY proposal that you think is "far left"?
    And look at all the DUmmies cover themselves before commenting.

    2. I'm no repuke, closeted or otherwise,
    but it's pretty clear that restoration of habeas corpus is now "far left." it's clear that the notion of three co-equal branches of government is now "far left." it's clear that the notion of the Constitution, except for an excerpted phrase from the Second Amendment is "far left."

    5. I've never been a Republican but I'd say proposals to nationalize the oil industry are pretty far
    To the left.
    Thanks to SarasotaRepub for your help! :D

    First one that comes to mind: Treating enemy combatants as if they were common criminals instead of POWs. That's far left.

    Socializing Healthcare: Considering healthcare is in shambles while only half socialized, imagine it's state when it's fully socialized. The socialization/nationalization of an entire industry exists only in the wet dreams of the far left. Your next and more erotic we dream is the energy industry isn't it?

    Another far left idea: The idea that the federal government has any access to or authority over the education system of a community. Any leftist who wishes to brainwash a population by defining curriculum at a federal level is thus living in a 'far left' wet dream.

    If you come up, or agree with, an idea such as the socialism of healthcare or the federal takeover of education, you are far left, right next to Stalin, and you are fucked up human being. Don't vote. Get help.

    Nationalized Healthcare

    Redistribution of Wealth

    Just a few off the top of my head.

    But Spineless, isn't that what the purple fingers were about?
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    It would be whatever rights the new Iraqi Constitution grants them.
