Actually I think this is beside the point, empty sophistry.
The "left" and the "right" is two containers that can be filled with different substance and they are there as a simplification which makes easier to differentiate between the slices of the political spectrum.
It's just that in the US this spectrum looks like this: right = liberals, left = liberals. Meanwhile in Europe it's more traditional and the countries here have (more or less) real conservatives and (more or less) real socialists.
