Doug asked some extremely thoughtful questions in another thread. His questions are so penetrating that I think they deserve their own thread. I would dearly love to see those of you who strenuously object to what you believe "liberalism" stands for, answer these questions for the benefit of we who are apparently too dumb to understand the brilliance of the conservative mind. Do you think that Doug is right? Is the average American drifting toward the "left?" If you think they are, what issues of the day do you think are causing this? Do you think that the "right" has superior solutions to that issues, and if so, what are they and why is the average American unable to see why the "right's" solution is a better one? Do you think that the Americans drifting to left are doing so just because they're not smart enough to see why your solutions are superior, or do you believe that they are communists at heart? Do you believe that the Bush administration's proformance in the last two terms has helped the conservative cause or hurt it? If you believe that the Bush Administration's has hurt the conservative movement, what would you have done differently if you had been POTUS?
