    I am definitely not claiming the GOP's stuff doesn't stink. For an analogy, in my teens and 20's, I despised religion. The religious right was ludicrous. PMRC anyone? Tipper Gore (to think the Gore's were once part of the religious right in some form). Anyhow, during that time, I didn't like Dem policies on economics, but I tended to side with them on social issues and generally held more contempt for right-wing Republicans who were shoving religious legislation down our gullets. At that time, the religious right was way more threatening then the left.

    I think, today, the balance has shifted. Most Republicans recognize there are limits to legislation based on religious views. They have tended to be less tyrannical in imposing their viewpoints. But! The left. OMG! They have gone a half click from full support of socialism. And that may be generous. Serious Democrat politicians support Maduro in Venezuela. Actual Democrat Congresspeople have openly said they are socialists and openly advocate for socialism. That is way more scary then putting labels on records. More scary than laws on marriage. We have openly anti-Semitic Democrats in Congress. Holy hell. The Democrat party is not recognizable as an American political institution anymore. It is basically the Weather Underground all grown up. So, I know hold the contempt for Democrats I used to reserve for the far right of the GOP. The GOP far right still exists. They're just mostly harmless to steal a Douglas Adams phrase.
    The U.S. is currently enduring a zombie apocalypse. However, in a strange twist, the zombie's are starving.
