The Republican primary looks like a poorly-made reality TV series–but unfortunately, it’s real. It’s even more unfortunate that contrary to popular belief, one of those incompetent demagogues could be our next president.
If we’re to believe polling data, America is becoming a much more liberal country. In fact, it’s likely directly responsible for President Obama’s epiphany that support of same-sex marriage was the right thing to do after all. It may even be the reason why many of the arguments against the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) were not fatal, as they were for Bill Clinton when he attempted the same thing in the ’90s. It’s interesting to note that a substantial portion of those who oppose Obamacare do so because it did not go far enough.
