great researching. valuable info provided here.

still, although the term may in fact predate the US congress,
the definition remains roughly the same. yes?

i might have to go back to the original thread, but i dont think
i argued that the US should take credit for having invented the
terms "right and left" as they pertain to american politics -
but rather that the terms (in the context of the american
[or clearly french - thank you] polictical scheme)
take root in a very literal setting -
or sitting as the case may be.

thanks for following up on this. very interesting.
