America Has Shifted To The Left And The Culture War Is Over


Election day 2012 showed once again that America is moving steadily to the left.  Yes, Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney, but the underlying dynamics run much deeper than that – especially when you take a look at social issues.  Older voters are more conservative when it comes to social issues, but they are slowly dying off and being replaced by younger voters that tend to be much more liberal.  So on a whole host of controversial social issues including gay marriage, abortion, immigration and drug legalization we are seeing a dramatic shift take place.  The American people as a whole are rejecting traditional values and are embracing a more “progressive” view of morality that is being promoted by our education system, the entertainment industry and the federal government.  Those that want to cling to the morality of the past are being told that they “are on the wrong side of history” and that they need to come into the 21st century.  On election night I spent a lot of time watching CNN, and even their “conservative pundits” were trashing those that still believe in traditional values.  Sadly, it is likely that those that believe in traditional values are going to have a harder and harder time trying to win national elections.  It is much easier to get people to change their minds about economic issues or foreign policy issues than it is about fundamental questions of right and wrong.  The demographic tidal wave that is pushing America to the left is not going to stop, and it would literally take a miracle to see this country start to move back in the direction of traditional values.

Twenty or thirty years ago, someone like Barack Obama would not have had a prayer of getting elected.  But now, he is considered to be “moderate” and someone like Mitt Romney is considered to be “conservative”.  That is how far this country has shifted to the left.  The mainstream media likes to talk about how this is a “center-right” nation, but that is just because the mainstream media is always more liberal than the rest of the country is.  The mainstream media is always eager for the rest of the nation to “catch up” to where they are already at.

But the shift to the left is not just reflected in our presidential politics.  In fact, on election day 2012 it was most clearly seen in the results of some of the ballot initiatives and referendums held across the country.

For example, prior to 2012 gay marriage had been voted down every single time when it had been put on the ballot in any state.

However, on election day 2012 gay marriage was made legal by the voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington state.  This represented a huge victory for gay marriage advocates.

We also saw the election of the first openly lesbian U.S. Senator up in Wisconsin.  Adding her and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts to the mix is going to push the U.S. Senate even farther to the left.

Down in Florida, voters decided to reject a proposal to prohibit the use of public funds for abortion.  This is just another in a string of pro-life ballot initiatives that have been defeated in recent elections.

Meanwhile, those that are promoting the legalization of drugs have some stunning victories to celebrate.  Both Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana.  This would have never happened 20 years ago.  But times have changed.

There has also been a dramatic shift when it comes to illegal immigration.  CNN exit polls found that a solid majority of American voters want immigrants that are in this country illegally to be given a chance to stay and be given a legal path to citizenship.  This is a huge change compared to what we saw even just five or ten years ago.

And this fundamental shift to the left will be felt in some of the highest institutions in the land.  Quite a few Supreme Court justices are in their seventies, and it is quite likely that Barack Obama will get the opportunity to nominate several new justices to the court before the end of his next term.

That means that all of the conservative hopes for the Supreme Court are probably dead in the water at this point.  It appears extremely unlikely that Roe v. Wade will ever be overturned, and the court is probably only going to get even more liberal from this point forward.

So what does all of this mean?

Well, it essentially means that the culture war is over and the social conservatives lost.  Obviously I would consider this to be a bad thing, because I am someone who believes deeply in traditional values.

The American people have chosen a direction, and the path that they have chosen is the path of “progressive” morality.  We are already seeing the consequences of this kind of morality play out all around us, and those consequences are only going to get worse

But to stop the monumental cultural shift that is taking place right now in this country would take a miracle of epic proportions.  Older voters that tend to be more socially conservative will continue to die off, and they will continue to be replaced by younger voters that tend to be more socially liberal.

The American people have made their choices, and those choices will continue to be reinforced by the education system, by the mainstream media, by the entertainment industry and by the federal government.

America has changed, and things will never be the same again.

So what do you think about all of this?

Do you believe that the culture war is over?

Well, you can't deny that all flavors of Rock N Roll music have one thing in common - they promote SOCIAL JUSTICE. So don't think b/c you're a conservative, and especially a born-again Christian, that you can listen to this and not be affected by this.

Look at the modern-day church that has brought in this CCM(Contemporary Christian Music) deception, they've been leavened quite a bit.

Even Jerry Falwell brought in DC Talk(a blasphemous CCM band) into his Liberty Univ. Yeah, the same Falwell that always stressed moral values for this nation.

Ultimately, this has been all by design. But the word of God predicted this would happen. Thank you Jesus!

Bush wades into immigration debate, says immigrants ‘invigorate our soul’ Twisted Evil


Former President George W. Bush made a rare foray into public policy on Tuesday when he urged the nation's leaders to take a "benevolent" approach to reforming the nation's immigration system.

Bush, who has maintained a low political profile since departing office four years ago, spoke briefly about immigration at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, a talk that was part of a daylong conference on immigration and the economy.

"America can become a lawful society and a welcoming society at the same time," Bush said, according to the Texas Tribune. "As our nation debates the proper course of action on immigration reform, I hope we do so with a benevolent spirit and keep in mind the contributions of immigrants.

"Not only do immigrants help build the economy, they invigorate our soul," Bush added.

Bush has said one of his major regrets about his presidency is that he did not manage to pass immigration reform. In 2007, he hammered out a deal that would have put millions of illegal immigrants in the country on a lengthy path to citizenship. The measure died in the Senate when Bush couldn't persuade enough members of his own party to vote to consider it.

Immigration reform is again a hot topic in Congress after President Barack Obama won more than 70 percent of the Hispanic vote in November. Some leading Republicans have said the party must address reform in order to stay competitive with the growing demographic. Last week, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, introduced a bill that would give young illegal immigrants visas if they join the military. So far, it's faced criticism from immigrant groups, who say they won't accept reform bills that don't provide full citizenship.

The Poisonous Candy: Emergency Contraception for Kids


Children grow up too fast and the few years they have when they can actually be children should be nurturing and character-forming. Today’s world pushes children to grow up and make adult decisions well before they are able, and where this is most prevalent is in regard to sexuality. This is becoming the case at an alarming rate, as we will see in today’s commentary.

A running controversy centers on the question of whether or not it is a good idea to provide pre-prescriptions of morning after pills to young people who have not yet reached the age of 17. This may not shock the vast majority of Americans who have come to assess sexual behavior in terms of safety from pregnancy rather than moral and mental health. But maybe it’s time for a reality check.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has approved a policy recommending the provision of contraception to teens because, according to its members, teens should be informed about their options so that they are prepared in case they have sex and need a backup plan.

As one report states, “The teenage impulsive decision-making process coupled with the fact that access to emergency contraception varies means teens are at best confused about how and when to access emergency contraception. In most states teens younger than 17 must obtain a prescription from a doctor to access emergency contraception. According to the AAP, teens are more likely to use emergency contraception if it has been prescribed in advance which would go a long way toward reducing teen pregnancy rates.”
