They don’t.  That is a cartoon version of rightists.  Your video was a politician clowning.  The guy in the picture isn’t a right-winger by far.  Perhaps you imagine an intentionally-distorted version of rightists. 


The "left" trusts the government more than their neighbors, especially their "right" neighbors.

If so, we would be running out of leftists.  The draft in the US ended nearly 50 yrs ago.  The youngest draftees would be approaching the end of a typical life-expectancy.

If so, we would be running short of rightists.  As watches have become cheap, credit cards easy to trace and cell phones even easier to trace, mugging has dwindled to nearly nothing.  That is a crime which has mostly disappeared.
