TAG Political Affiliation Model, rev 1 - 17:28 CST, 8/25/13 (Sniper)
In my time following America's political arena I've found that any model-- but especially the ubiquitous "left/right" dichotomy-- that attempts to place different political ideologies and coalitions on some sort of linear plane or axis winds up being such an oversimplification as to make the model almost worthless.
