the division between church and state?

They wore us out. Starting with Raygun the conservatives managed to mainstream the idea that they have a right to teach their children to hate Blacks and Jews and anyone else that looks different or thinks differently. And to use public money to do so. Like it or not, that's the America of today.

Yet the most common stance I hear from moderates is that we should be "moderate" and "fair" in our politics, that we shouldn't "sink to their level." Yet the conservative element has continually dominated American culture and politics for nearly a half century now and it looks like, by continuing to employ lies, hatred, violence and dishonesty, they have managed to redefine "America." Conservatives have literally bullied themselves into control of America. And, given that, for the most part, the conservatives doing the bullying are cowards and trash with substandard intelligence, this doesn't say much for Americans in general.
