I read somewhere a few years ago that the it is the policy of the NYT to not even include "religious" books on its Best Sellers list.

"Progressives" have been working slowly for the last century imposing socialist utopia upon us. No society would peacefully and quickly succumb to socialist utopia. That is why Republicans took over the House for the first time in 40 years after the Dems tried to impose HillaryCare on us. "Slowly" has been the explicit successful strategy for big government types, and it has been working.
Exactly.
The "why" is a different issue. Can you answer the question? When you, and millions of others who think as you do, do not vote then the winners of elections will be Democrats. Our slide into socialist utopia will then be quicker than if you had voted for the Republican. Is that what you want, a quicker slide into socialist utopia, by not voting? Or a slower slide into socialist utopia by voting for Republicans?
...or a slower slide into socialist utopia by voting for Republicans?
@Richard 1311: You wrote "No, and I'm tired of hearing that argument. It's a false argument, as if by not voting it effects how others vote as well. Me not voting doesn't make Joe Smith down the block vote for the Democrat." That is not the argument, Richard. The argument is that when you, and millions of others who think as you do, do not vote then the winners of elections will be Democrats. Our slide into socialist utopia will then be quicker than if you had voted for the Republican. Is that what you want, a quicker slide into socialist utopia?
What will you do at voting time when presented with two candidates neither of whom revere the Constitution? Not vote?
What if your lack of voting, and those who think as you do, for those who don't meet your standards results in the election of those who are even farther away from your standards than the Republican candidate?
Another way is to "die with a wimper, not with an explosion." "Resistance is futile." "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yeild, and government to gain ground." - Thomas Jefferson
Remember how HillaryCare was rejected, and led to the first Republican House in 40 years? Americans are willing to ingest socialist utopia, but only if it comes slowly, bite by bite; a little socialism to themselves, more to their children, and yet more to their grandchildren. Republicans are necessary to this process. Republicans are the brakes to the runaway train that would otherwise crash and burn at every tight turn if the Democrats were always in power. Republicans are necessary to the establishment of the socialist utopia, because they rarely repeal Big Government, they just impose more chunks of government upon us that are smaller than those that Democrats would impose. Republicans voted for the laws making sure that you use the proper light bulbs throughout your house. They will not repeal carbon taxes, they will just make them smaller. The only problem with Mr. Hunter's thesis is that it more surely leads to the socialist utopia that Regressives want. I say let us punish the generation that continues to feed coal to the steam engine that lead us into socialist utopia, and not wait until our grandchildren suffer it.
