Someone Sums Up My Thoughts on the Values Voters Better Than Myself
Right now, Democrats seem to be leaning toward the idea that Bush’s victory is based primarily on turning out religious nuts to vote for him. These people are viewed in certain Democratic quarters as the American Taliban. It is thought that if they gain political power, not only will abortion and gay marriage be banned, but so will dancing, rock and roll, and any movie with an “R” rating.
This is nothing but nonsense, but is commonly believed in places like Hollywood and New York’s upper west side. They really believe that Bush is the Ayatollah and it’s only a matter of time before all women are walking around in burkas. No wonder they fought Bush so strenuously.
The truth is that the issue of values, which motivated many of Bush’s supporters according to exit polls, has much less to do with religion than Democrats believe. Ironically, the real problem is that liberals have imposed their beliefs on America in exactly the way they imagine that conservatives want to do. In many cases, the real frustration isn’t even with the liberal goal, but they way they achieved it.
