Excekllent write-up on the response to the election by US Conservatives.http://33revolutionsperminute.wordpress ... y-reality/
The most astute observation being that left wing nutters (myself included) rarely believe that everyone else wants the same things as them, but we have a go anyway. What I find baffling, watching some of the media coverage and punditry from the US, is that many hard line conservatives seem to foster the belief that their vile beliefs are somehow the unspoken de facto beliefs of everyone...
Your observations are incorrect. Most conservatives I know say exactly opposite, that fewer and fewer people want or believe what they do. That people are rejecting conservative beliefs and that such are losing ground has been a rallying cry for decades.
Like I said, my oberservations are based upon punditry in the US media.
US news media, across the board, has the same malaise as there in the UK. The "two sides" thing. Which inevitably means getting the hard liners in.
Most hard line near-nutters almost have to believe everyone wants what they want or their world view or it falls apart.
Most conservative are not nutters. Most conservatives are utterly agreeable people with decent heads on their shoulders who dearly want to prtoect what they see as the good in the status quo despite increasingly losing ground.
These people don't end up on the tele.
Whoever you vote for, the government wins.
