    More people respected the law - and it was more civilized.

    Good idea – retreat to a reactionary fantasy world of an American past that never existed to begin with; it will help you cope with Romney’s loss.

    Fewer people also in the 50s.....

    In the 50s - it was "you're welcome."

    Today: "no problem."

    The 1950s was a great time to be a white middle class child, that is for sure.

    That because in the 1950s unions were strong, daddy made a decent living, mommy probably stayed home and the MASTERS still needed a strong vibrant America and with a strong middle class.

    For many other Americans, (Blacks for example) it wasn't such a great time.
