Response to coalition_unwilling (Reply #39)

46. I believe there are always

enough people in every society, about 20% on either side, who, with enough effort and the right conditions, can move a country one way or another. In most cases, the middle of the road part of the population holds either side at bay. Things have been off balance in the US toward the right for some time. The religious right (our very own Taliban) cooked up their plans about 45 years ago and are the latest culprits . They took advantage of the Republican party and the the leaders of the party took advantage of them. The strange bedfellows may be getting ready to part ways. One can only hope. I'm not very fond of "old republican" values, but they are 100% more acceptable than these new radical types.
