    Actually, I have a correction to that:

    If you are a liberal at 25, you have a heart. If you are a conservative at 35, you have early onset dementia.

    Re: Americans Continue to Shift Left on Key Moral Issues - GALLUP

    Most of these don't surprise me. The US has been shifting left on social issues for a long time... and to the benefit of all people with the exception of rigid reactionary extreme right wingers. What I find interesting is that as social issues have gone left, these social issues have allowed more personal freedom for people... something that extreme right wingers often claim is the hallmark of their position. It is not surprising that we see hypocrisy from that extreme portion of the conservative block.

    The two that surprised me were suicide and abortion. I was surprised to see the moral support for suicide go up and for the moral support for abortion go up only slightly.

    I'm not "rightist", and I wasn't all the way to the left either. If your premise here is that we need to both agree that you are in the middle then let's stop now.

    Funny for you to say that when you don't even self identify as in the middle.

    No, most liberals I know think they are moderates. Those far enough removed to admit they aren't moderate are far enough left that they're nowhere near the middle.

    I was really surprised at the low approval of pornography--I sense a lot of hypocrites there. I'm also disappointed that the 'ick' factor around cloning hasn't dissipated more.

    So, more proof of the Moral Decline of the US. Clearly our time is limited as with any Democracy when the voting public becomes morally decayed. It is a clear sign of the spread of a pandemic of selfishness and the placement of personal hedonistic desires, or even materialistic desires, above morality. We are now and have been becoming a nation of instant gratification, whether good or evil, and of "what's in it for me" for a long while now. How much time do we have left? God only knows and he hasn't been directly speaking to us for awhile (Since we nailed his son to a cross, go figure).
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
