How myopic American conservatives seem to be! Conservatives directly oppose the overwhelming majority view on several key issues related to personal morality, gender, sexuality and choice. Whether it’s trying to limit reimbursement for birth-control in order to limit its reach, or opposing women’s right to control their own bodies, or insisting on maintaining Prohibition of illicit drugs contrary to most international experts, American conservatives do not listen or respect the American people and their wishes. Instead, conservatives think they know better and that their morality is the only acceptable variety. I must disappoint you all……in a country like Australia, only a tiny minority express agreement with your views. Abortion is freely available and assisted by Government, political parties have left the public bedroom and are increasingly minding their own business at last. Prostitution is legal and very well regulated and there is general acceptance of each person’s right to decide their values for themselves. American Conservatives want to take America back 50yrs before the next generation of enlightened young Americans assume power and legislate proscriptive statutes into history. What about your beloved constitution Conservatives? What about majority rules? What about equality for all? At least tell yourselves the truth…….that you want everyone to believe what you do and you reject anyone with a contrary view.

This post by Steve Straub of “The Federalist Papers” ( laments progressive gains in the U.S. and is commented on by a range of hard right-wing zealots that appear to be in a moral panic about the American public living their lives as they wish.

“There appears to be a full on assault on the first amendment, Christians and conservatives within the military.

Todd Starnes from FOX News reports:

Soldiers attending a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told that evangelical Christians and members of the Tea Party were a threat to the nation and that any soldier donating to those groups would be subjected to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. A soldier who attended the Oct. 17th briefing told me the counter-intelligence agent in charge of the meeting spent nearly a half hour discussing how evangelical Christians and groups like the American Family Association were “tearing the country apart.” In my opinion the Obama administration is determined to transform the Armed Forces into a liberal/progressive institution by chasing out those opposed to their policy goals.”

My comment is expressed as politely as I can make it but I really feel like shaking Conservatives and telling them to fuck off and take their noses out of my business.
