  1. You have a very informative and well thought out blog post. I like how your post is easy to understand, and clearly outlines right wing and left wing policies. However, I think there are two things you could have done to improve your post. Firstly, on the first line of your blog, you should write the word “two,” instead of the number “2.” Secondly, I think you could have written a little about political views from those who are in the middle of both right wing and left wing. Especially living in a country where there are three main federal parties and two of them which are more in the middle of both wings. Aside from that, once again you have a nicely written and informative blog which was intriguing and fun to read!
