Slippery slope

(h/t Salon)

It has to be really tough on conservatives to look back fifty years and see all the things that liberals and moderates have done to make life better for people. Conservatives have to realize that, in every case, they failed to hold back the tide.

  • civil rights for black people
  • civil rights for women
  • Medicare
  • desegregation
  • the end of the Vietnam War
  • environmental protection - air, water, toxics
  • gay rights
  • the truth about Iraq
  • universal health care
About the only accomplishment of conservatives domestically has been a return to deregulated Hoover-nomics, and we see where that got us.

Not to mention the fifty years before that... How do they keep going about their daily goal of restraining all progress? It's no wonder they lose it.
