Yes, Iceland now has a gay Prime Minister. She will probably not remain in office long, though, as her politics are not nearly as far to the left as Iceland's citizens want.
Instead of focusing on the gay leader of Iceland, though, I would like to focus on how she got to be in office - Through the complete collapse of the banking system in Iceland.
You know, I remember a time when Conservatives preached about fiscal responsibility, balancing the budget, and responsibility. The perverting of Conservative ideals through the greed and corruption that led to the banking crisis here in America is not confined to just America, though. It seems to be a worldwide phenomenon. It is not Conservatism that failed, but the leaders, both in America and elsewhere, who abandoned it to pursue the task of driving our nation, and its financial system, off a cliff. As a result, the Liberals have taken over. The Conservative ideals that were abandoned by its leaders will be blamed, and the damage done will last a generation.
Conservatism, though, will make a comeback soon, sans Neocons, as the "hive mentality" is just not part of human nature. Throughout history, Liberals have gone too far with their agenda, and the result has always been a swing of the pendulum back the other way. Obama is no exception to this immutable law of political physics.
The purpose of this thread is not to trash Obama and the Liberals, nor to smear them, nor to conduct character assassinations on them, but to merely point out that they are on the wrong side of history. This will eventually be borne out, starting in 2012. When that day comes, Conservatives had better be ready, and the party clean, with no trace left of the disastrous false ideology that permeated it in the last decade. If that is done right, then things will once again look bright for the Conservative movement. After all, nobody in their right minds truly want the government to be our nanny. As Barry Goldwater, and Davy Crockett before him, once said, "A government powerful enough to give you everything you want, is also powerful enough to take away everything you have".
