Right and left
A distant cousin sent this to me today. It had been sent to her by someone.
I thought some of you might find it interesting.
I have often wondered why the conservatives are called the “right” and the liberals are called the “left.” By chance, I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:
Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)
“The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left."
Eccles. 10:2 KJV
"A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left."
Hmmm, I guess that sums it up pretty well... YOU CAN'T HAVE A BETTER REFERENCE SOURCE THAN STRAIGHT TEXT FROM THE BIBLE!
I'll bet the brain is the same way...
Doesn't the terms left and right politically originate in the British Parliment?
Liberals sit to the left of the isle and Conservatives sit to the right of the isle.
I don't blame you. I blame bad policy. I blame the interventionists. I blame the neoconservatives who preach this stuff, who believe in it like a religion -- that they have to promote American goodness even if you have to bomb and kill people. In short, I donít blame America; I blame neocons." ó Ron Paul
