The social conservatives's one way ticket to the political trash heap

Very clear from my meetings the social conservatives this week they're headed to political irrevelevancy unless they change their ways PDQ.

Their biggest problem is an addiction to narrow pet causes while failing to recognise the threat to their long term survival is the relentless destruction of the family caused by federal family policy. Marriage rates are so low we're close to, and hopefully haven't yet passed, the point of no return to maintain a critical mass of citizens who still care and value traditional family life.

That came home me when I addressed campus Conservatives and Republicans at a major midwestern state university recently. Seemed most of the students were from broken families. When I raised marital stability issues in my talk, all the students in the subsequent discussion defended their parents' divorce as good for the family and for them!

Beats me why the social conservatives continue to fall for the GOP's classic seduction of successfully wooing them with BIG POLICY promises early in the campaign and then running as fast as they can to center for the swing voters. Once in office, they throw the social conservatives a few bones but run key departments like Education and HHS like a bunch of left wing Democrats. Were that not the case Bush wouldn't have nominated Harriet Miers.

Clear the administration thinks the conservatives are weaklings firmly tucked into its back pocket. Otherwise the administration and our congressional leadership wouldn't have annointed Bernanke to succeed Greenspan at the Federal Reserve. He's a funny money printer extrordinaire who'll put the final nail in coffin for affordable housing.

NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING=THE END OF TRADITIONAL FAMILIES=THE END OF THE SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT AS A REAL POLITICAL FORCE IN AMERICA.

WHILE THE GOP'S STILL IN CHARGE MAKE 'EM PAY UP FRONT NOW FOR OUR SUPPORT IN 2008.
