They do, indeed. From tax law to Roe v Wade to Citizens United, laws (often in the form of court decisions) do legislate morality. The Left constantly tells the Right to "stop shoving your values down our throats" but it's always the Left pushing for change. The Right simply opposes the changes and that is somehow seen as "legislating morality." Okay, it is legislating morality but the Right "didn't start the fire." :-)
For the first time, I am wondering about the long-term viability of the Republican Party. I say this not as an advocate of its demise or restructuring but as an observer of troubling signs.

The Republican Party is thought to be the institutional vehicle for the advancement of conservative policies, but for decades, the conservative movement has been frustrated with the party's deviation from conservative principles -- its refusal to live up to its decidedly conservative platform.

I believe that the disappointing results for Republicans in the 2006 elections and probably the 2012 elections, as well, were in no small part attributable to...
