“The above two issues are going to be his albatros if he were to campaign for POTUS.”
Perhaps, but I’m confident you would not win an election if you catered to everything we conservatives demand of our representative. The social dynamics have changed with the younger generations and they don’t have a problem with gay marriage, abortion, etc. It’s sad but true and it showed its ugly face in November 2008.
The political shift to the left started with the November ‘06 election, and it continued with the November ‘08 election. Also, more people vote for American Idol contestants than vote for politicians, and all of these things helped to create the present leftist “mess” that everybody’s in. I’m not so certain that conservatives are going to actually do as well this November as they are optimistically predicting. A return to conservatism and free market reforms throughout the U.S. will have to include the actual undoing of leftist legislation that’s already in place as law (some leftist legislation that was put in place, while FDR was POTUS, onwards past today), and I’m not so certain that any future non-leftist majorities in Congress, and on down politically, are really going to be capable of legally undoing leftist legislation that’s already put in place as law (income tax systems, all entitlement programs, War on Drugs, War on Poverty, The Immigration Acts of 1965 and 1986, ObamaCare, “Campaign Finance Reform”,...) Notice how even past Republican POTUS have done some leftist things, on occasion, during their durations as president.
Absolutely false. Young people are more opposed to abortion. Anyone over the age of 38 now is a survivor.
