I always found that "We are the best country in the world and can get away with anything" attitude more prevelant on the other side.  The God bless the United States of America and no place else crowd. 

The Chomsky article outoffocus posted was a good illustration of that I thought and he's on the left.  Maybe it just depends on who's in office.  When Bush was in office it seemed like everyone on the right supported Iraq and while I wouldn't say everyone on the left supports all of the bs we do in the rest of the world now (killing whoever we want without due process) I would describe it more as abstaining from the debate than the saber rattling we heard from the right during the Bush years. 

But that's just one mans perspective.  Yours may be completely different.

And to answer your question David...I'm swimming in it every time I bust out a line from Mises's thesis, "Economic calculation in a socialist commonwealth".  :)
