I remember it was just 8 years ago when my opposition to things like the Patriot Act, the Federal Reserve, warrantless searches, and endless wars made me a tree hugging, pot smoking, hippie loving, liberal. Now those same opinions make me an intolerant, racist, xenophobic, neo-nazi, conservative. I'm not sure which I like better.
But yeah, don't worry conservatives. Liberals are in the same sinking boat that you are. They just happen to like the captain better at this time.

My apoligies. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Declaration of Independence. Most people consider the Creator to be God.

I find it amazing that Conservative media and it's large following has adopted the refrain that somehow we are no no longer the America of our fathers....we aren't...we are much more free and much more capitalistic.
The whole rhetoric about socialism, tyranny, the America of our forefathers being gone?? Look again at 1962, we are dramatically more liberated and capitalistic than our fathers or grandfathers America. This doesn't even account for civil rights, the womens movement etc...
Conservatives have nothing to despair...assuming they actually are sincere in thier rhetoric...
