Left and Right... what does that even mean anyway?! You'll hear these terms whenever the topic of politics comes up. Left vs. Right. Democrat vs. Republican. This assignment will shed some light on something called the political spectrum. Another word for spectrum is range; the political spectrum shows a range of political beliefs. Everyone falls somewhere on the political spectrum, depending on their particular values. It's important to remember that there are many things to take into consideration when deciding where someone falls on the political spectrum and nothing is exact.
