    Cause they seem pretty tamed to me on that subject. I mean, we have real communists here, radicals, socialists and social-liberals so i'm kinda use to the left rhetoric, points and views of the society and from here the Democrats seem to me more in the center, right-center of the political prism than anywhere in the left.
    they are, as the definition is understood in the US

    even going back to the 80s, Tipper Gore led the charge against getting the explicit label on records...and had Frank Zappa, Alice Cooper, and John Denver all on the same side

    Dems like Joe Liebermann attacked the video game industry in the 90s over video game violence

    and again when the GTA "hot coffee" thing came up - that was Senator Clinton

    Wayne LaPierre, executive director of the NRA, responds to the Newtown school shooting by pitching a solution that will result in the sale of at least 100,000 guns for his corporate overlords.

    John Denver knew it was time to take a stand when he found himself on the same side of the table as the man who wrote "Broken Hearts Are For Assholes," "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow" and "Jewish Princess."

    From a European POV they're rather center-right or center at best in some cases. No lefties in the USA. You only have to see how some people call Obama a socialist as an insult (not even social-democrat :p).

    Of course if the Republicans would acknowledge that Obama was somewhat right of center, then they also have to acknowledge that they themselves are rather extremely to the right and not very different from fascists.

    Well, I think that Marine Le Pen (or the Vlaams Belang) would welcome quite a few of them with open arms. :p

    Yeah, Obama is only left by American standards, to the rest of the civilized world he would be center-right. He's more conservative than Richard Nixon on a lot of issues. It's a symptom of how far right America has moved since Reagan.

    Of course. It's not like the game had anything socially unacceptable, like a naked boob.
