Government

Left Wing:
Support(sometimes radical) change; think that the government should provide more social services such as education and health care(therfroe they support higher taxes); believe that the government should be heavily involved in managing the economy; and believe that criminals should be rehabiliated(that they are capable of changing their ways). In general, left wing politics support new solutions to old problems.

Right Wing:

Support tradition and the status quo(the existing situation) think that the government should play a limited role in the economy(cut government spending and involvement); support business and free enterprise(i.e, people can conduct business free of government control and should not have to pay high taxes); believe that the budget should be balanced- even if this means cutbacks in education and health care; believe that law and order have high priority and that there should be harsher penalties for criminals. Quite often this group supports "turning back the clock" when problem solving.
