Sadly, the net effect is to shift the 'middle' to the left some more, and leave those of us who have staunchly backed the Constitution hanging further off to the Right of the center of discourse.
Funny how many 'central' topics of debate today would have been so far left as to be radioactive in the days of Jack Kennedy debating Nixon.
We have a long way to go to get back to original intent.
There have been good signs this week that Romney will beat Obama. This whole nation has moved left since the Ronald Reagan years. The culture has moved leftward and so has the political discourse. Back in the 1980s universities were not leftist employment agencies
Romney is the best we can do right now to stem the tide
