In a previous commentary we opined that Most Americans Are Leftists and presented supporting evidence in the form of two political spectrum graphics.
A traditional view of the political spectrum as discussed in the mainstream and indoctrinated by pedagogues into the minds of millions of unsuspecting children, teens and college graduates :

The idea that most Americans, and citizens of the world for that matter, are leftists really comes down to one’s point of reference. The concept is completely lost on those beholden to the “Traditional” political spectrum view who have never been exposed to or had the opportunity to contemplate other possibilities. It begins to make much more sense when considered with respect to the “True” view.
The following micro-documentary, The American Form of Government, presents a more expanded look at the True View spectrum and argues that there exist only two types of government – oligarchy and republic – with a transitory state of democracy which exists between the two.
