    I think Jeff Perren over on Breibart's site speaks pretty clearly for the right wing:

    If the Left wants to eliminate at a stroke the vast majority of heated, hated right-wing rhetoric there’s a very simple way to do that: give up.
    Get out of the way. Stop advocating the violation of individual rights every day in every way. Stop trying to get legislation passed that steals private property for the purpose of funding your favorite social engineering goals. Stop extolling the alleged virtue of interpreting the U.S. Constitution in ways that further Progressive goals. End your advocacy of coercion through government.

    Your cause is not noble, your methods are not virtuous, your philosophy is not just. Your ideas are more than mistaken; they’re immoral, impractical, and unconstitutional. Change your philosophy and change your behavior and ‘the Right’ will no longer have an incentive to fight back against your support for squishy tyranny.

    Until then, you can expect the rhetoric to continue. A vocal segment of the American people will simply no longer sit back passively and watch their freedom get corroded away, one bad edict at a time.

    Until then, the intellectual revolution to restore it will continue undiminished.

    As you can clearly see, we are fundamentally different in our entire world view from the right. There is no compromise. This will not end until we have civil war. It doesn't matter if that's not where the left wants to go, it's where the right wants to go and they are working tirelessly to drag us to that end.

    Ds see human suffering and wonder what they can do to relieve it. Rs see human suffering and wonder how they can profit from it.
