    I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left." By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:


    "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left ."
    Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)

    Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen


    Can't get any simpler than that.

    I always thought it was because the liberal in congress sit on the left side of the aisle and the conservatives sit on the right side.
    You reason is better.
