    Actually, history does not show that. It shows that some issues fluctuate, some have rather linear social acceptance.

    My point is, socialists CAN NOT STEAL this country.

    Not while we have arms. and they obviously KNOW this, since they strive mightily to disarm us. THAT ain't happening.



    Where are these Socialists that you are talking about?

    Right, some fluctuate. History shows this.

    Which is not what you said, and kinda renders your point invalid.

But it is not likely to turn back.

    This issue is nothing like abortion, and I know that is the issue many want to use in comparison. This issue is like interracial marriage, as far as being able to compare it to an issue like it in the past.
    Really, not these types? It appears that at different points in history, SSM was deemed perfectly acceptable, then it wasn't, then it was...

    Not so much. In the grand scheme of acceptance of social issues....acceptance/opposition fluctuates. As it has with SSM.

    The socialists (progressives) have taken over the democrat party and led all the willing "liberals" by the nose. THAT's the socialists I'm talking about!
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!
