  •  Do you think their ... constituency (7+ / 0-)

    is shrinking, jessical? There seem to be signs in that direction.

    •  I don't have a clue! (6+ / 0-)

      We can hope, right?  I especially suck at historical prognostication.  The above is just from my take on people, which I have more confidence about (mostly).   It does seem that way!  And even people with messed up and twisted visions of the world change, especially as the world changes around them.

      Though the recent state senate rebellion by the right has me worried, I am very lucky to live on the West side of the Cascade Curtain here in WA, in my little queer neighborhood.  I'm a hairsbreadth from my long term goal of a visa out, and if I get it I won't screw it up this time -- but after this election I can actually say that where I live is at least as liberal as some of the social democracies where I'm applying to grad school.  And so many people on here are fighting for things I take for granted every day.  And others are just entirely outside the filter we've built around our civilized online discussions of social change, people who we try to fight for but who are not really welcome at our table.   I have no idea if it is getting better, if the last election turnout will hold..but I hope you're right.

      Not sure where all this nonsense came from tonight, it's time for bed :}
