death by death the country is slipping away from the repubs. in the mid 60s the hippies brought huge societal changes that went mainstream. anyone born in the late 50s and after would see this as the new norm and would have no memories of the basic foundation values that were solidly in place until the 70s. for example college dorms now have room hopping and bed hopping and this is actually encouraged by school officials. how do you go back to ozzie and harriet with that? and now in recent years the gays are on the rise. for anyone 30 years old this is the normal situation, for this age group the pre-gay days never existed.
