 Far right - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.unc.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Far right, extreme right, ultra-right, or radical right are terms used to discuss the qualitative or relative position a group or person occupies within a political spectrum.
The far right has often been associated in various degrees with conservatism, reactionism, monarchism, nationalism, jingoistic chauvinism, populism, economic protectionism, anti-immigration or racist and xenophobic policies, but the usage varies greatly.
The term "far right" is sometimes rejected by right-wing political parties that consider themselves "mainstream".

 Right-wing politics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In politics, right-wing, the political right, and the right are terms used in the spectrum of Left-Right Politics, and much like the opposite number of Left Wing, it has a broad variety of definitions and terms- the same name can, in politics, sometimes mean different things.
At the other extreme within what is usually considered right of centre, the centre-right Gaullists in post-World War II France advocated considerable social spending on education and infrastructure development, as well as extensive economic regulation and even a limited amount of the wealth redistribution measures more characteristic of social democracy.
A more obscure strand of right wing thought, often associated with the original right wing from the times of monarchy, supports the preservation of wealth and power in the hands that have traditionally held them, social stability, and national solidarity and ambition.

 Far-right (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.unc.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Since, by definition, most people are not far from the center, the terms "far-right" and "far-left" are used to say that someone is an extremist, not in tune with the majority.
The imprecise use of the terms "left" and "right" in politics, and there being no absolute consensus as to what the "archetypes" of left and right are, has led to a number of disputes over the proper usage of "far-right" and "far-left" other than as general terms of derision.
There are a number of different two-axis political models that were created for this reason, and they are discussed in detail in the article on the political spectrum.

 Pasco: Far right? This reader disagrees
The attacks on the Constitution and, in particular, the Bill of Rights' Second Amendment, have shown Hayhoe and his liberal cronies to be the nonthinking, self-appointed, do-as-I-say revisionists that they are.
And one of those freedoms is the right to keep and bear arms, as individual citizens.

 Right and Wrong
The rise of the far right, he suggests, can therefore be attributed to the confluence of both global and nationally specific trends in the course of the 1990s.
The end of the cold war unleashed a new wave of nationalism, emanating from the new nations that arose from the ashes of the Soviet empire and from parts of western Europe which feared for their economic prosperity now that their poor relations were no longer behind the iron curtain.
And the Far Right's fears of being swamped by the poor Eastern neighbors are vastly exaggerated.

 Far right alienates moderate Christians - Opinion
Everyone who disagrees with their agenda is accused of hating people of faith or stifling their right to exercise their faith.
The only stifling they can cite, however, is court interference in their attempts to legislate Christian dogma on the masses or to employ the state in the proselytizing efforts.
Groups like the FRC know that the court system is the last hurdle left to building their "city on a hill." Their vision for this society is clear, but those pesky judges keep letting the sinners through the gates.

He begins by tracing the origin of the Right (termed the Old Right) back to the opposition leaders of Roosevelt's New Deal, proclaiming the 1950s as a "pivotal time for conservatism", and traces the growth of conservative networks and organizations through to the late 1970s.
He adds that a New Right became a dominant force in American society due to the rise of a new Religious Right, mobilization of corporate conservatism and a revitalization of the Republican party.
She includes well-detailed examinations of the religious broadcasting industry and its force as a political propaganda tool, the rise of the Christian right in the political arena of the 1980's and trends in the pro-family movement.

 Newsvine - Hard Truths for """Conservative""" Heads - The Far Right are Christ-Killers
The "rights of the unborn" rhetoric of the right may have a moral core but it's yet again a smoke screen that is designed to create more misery, poverty, ignorance and hatred in this country rather than than love, decent parenting and good lives.
The far right is dead set on eliminating freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the privacy of our homes and our personal endeavors - everything that our Constitution was created to protect and preserve.
Many right wingers consider the government to be a business and your article clearly articulates that the government is a different entity unlike a business which is motivated by profit.

 BBC News | TALKING POINT | Could the far-right win in other European countries?
I have to say that France's far right vote is not much of a surprise if one looks at their efforts to "protect" their culture over the years from not only the US and immigrant groups but the EU as well.
The recent swing to the right does not mean that the acceptance of other cultures has diminished but rather that the French public are responding through the only possible channel to state that they want to see some changes made to the immigration system.
The main danger of the far right is that they are much more extreme than their public utterances suggest.

 Newsvine - Right, Left, & Center
Obviously this is a bit simplistic, and the "Religious Right" pretty much screw it all up, but when I look for a conservative candidate, I look for someone who believes that the government is not the answer.
Right now the Republicans seem more direct by simply banning things they don't like such as gay marriage, while Democrats take a more sneaky (to me) approach of stealing money from people they disagree with and spending it on programs designed to alter peoples worldview (welfare, approved education, national healthcare, etc).
Adam Hobson is on the right track...elected officials must be made more accountable to their constituents than to lobbyists and contributors or this will never end.

It’s a bad idea to pass on the right unless the vehicle ahead of you is signaling a left turn.

Judicial Nominee Janice Rogers Brown - To the Right of Thomas and Scalia
Far from demonstrating the commitment to fundamental civil and constitutional rights principles that should be shown by all federal court nominees, Brown's record reveals a disturbing tendency to try to remake the law in a way that would undermine these crucial principles.
In speeches as well as in some of her opinions, Brown has embraced the extreme states' rights and anti-federal-government positions of the Federalist Society, the organization of lawyers and judges working to push the law far to the right.

 Opinion: Far-right tax fantasy
But it would be even more useful had President Bush not decreed a revenue-neutral result in the face of ravenous deficits as far as the eye can see.
The commission took its own wrong turn in deciding to recommend repeal rather than reform of the alternative minimum tax, which is beginning to sweep up middle-income taxpayers because of the failure to index it.
The 10-year difference between repeal and permanent indexing, the fair solution, would cost an estimated $206-billion, another unwise and unaffordable windfall for the very rich.
