  •  It's not about religion... (none)
    Religion is only a symptom of what is going on in America. The reason the conservatives are so successful, is that they are tapping into people's "shadows". I.e. those parts of people that are most ugly and most denied.

    This is really about psychology...you are not going to understand why people voted they way they did unless you understand the immense energy that people are able to bottle up and unleash when it comes to issues that deep down they do not own and definitely fear.

    Religion has nothing to do with it except that it, like Bush, is often good at tapping the shadow.
