Today's U.S. Culture and Society - Will The 2010 Elections Help?
The Ignorant Fishermen Blog ^ | 1/26/10 | DJP I.F.

We should not be overly excited or deceived by the Scott Brown victory or any other conservative-moderate victories in 2010, however exciting as they might be. The true heart of the American people has NOT CHANGED for the better. It still is what it has always been over these last 50 years or so: licentious and haughty. Even now many conservatives have been subtly intoxicated and tainted by socialism, godlessness and the immoral practices of the Left (Jer. 6:16-17; Matt. 15:8, 18-20). For example, consider the Republican administration and congress of the last 8 years. Except for a core of faithful true conservatives (fiscal and moral), the movement would have faded away years ago. What makes you think that the heart of these politicians or the American people has changed or will change? It hasn't and it won't. Sadly, the "voter reaction" victories occurring in 2010 (e.g., Scott Brown) will only display the last struggling convulsions of a decadent nation on the precipice of total collapse. I have absolutely no pleasure in making this statement. In fact, I do so with a grieving heart.

What we need today in America is a true to heart - moral and social - revival with the rebuilding and regeneration of the family foundation which has been decimated by liberalism. When this ideal and natural law is on the ballot box the moderate independents usually flee to a liberal candidate. Social morality scares them (the moderate) to death. They will and have no problem voting for a fiscal conservative, but they almost never will vote for a pro life/pro family, Judean/Christian values moral one. The moderate Democratic Blue Dogs and Rockefeller Republicans who voted for Reagan - 30 years ago - in the past were no where as base as today's liberal independent.

...”Congress”

The House and Senate Republicans.. They had a HUGE problem with spending, socialism and selling out conservatism fiscal values.. They drank the Dem Kool aid. I was not referring to the Dems of 07-10. Just Rep lawmakers of the last 8 years and Bush.

On some (not all) social issues, such as gay marriage, immigrations, student prayer, etc., conservatives are losing ground as they ignored the implications of public education where the liberal teachers indoctrinate their children on daily basis. I don't think Churchil's doctrine (the one with regard people below age 25 being liberal, and above being conservative) will hold.

One issue that may move toward conservative position, interestingly, is abortion. The technology, which allows us to see babies inside their mother's womb, seem to change many people's mind.
