Regarding Culture Wars: 1 is a nice reminder in the midst of bad news everywhere. Of all the problems to be having, America is having some relatively nice problems. Not to suggest that means we should stop moving forward by any means, but it’s nice to remember.
I’ve been yammering about 3 for quite awhile. Really I’m inclined to believe a lot of GOP higher-ups never want abortion to be banned because they can use that issue to distract from economics for a long time to come. Sanders was a nice change in moving the discussion to economics, and even Trump bringing trade to the center was a good shift. (Now if only someone would bring up the abolition of private property.)
