The people of the United States have tilted liberal for a while now, but the show up voters, the 'citizens' of the United States (at leas those who are willing to play the two party game mandated by the constitution) lean to the right.

      •  Two and only two parties (0+ / 0-)

        isn't mandated ... but yeah, I take your point.
