American Conservatism

A few thoughts:

Why is it that only John Stewart is brave enough to speak of liberalism? This, I think, is one of the signs of just how conservative this country is- only the goofy pseudo political analyst is openly liberal... and he is obviously devastated, rightfully so. When he read the states that passed strict gay marriage bans last night... I really felt ashamed of our country.

There is a lot of discussion about how the democrats can gain power in the "heartland". The democrats must not sacrifice progress or compassion in order to do so. A democratic party that bars homosexual marriage might gain offices, but would essentially turn American politics in to a single fundamentalist party.
