      Modernism is the enemy of fundamentalisms of many sorts. Richard Nixon was a quaker who saw the political advantage of pitting old religous people against younger modernists. He disliked the young and most of them hated him. For Nixon politics was race, age and religion. The old south was the perfect place to spread his southern strategy.
      Bush used the strategy, both Bushes but Bush one got tripped up by the real politics of economics. After eight years of voodo politics the right thought it could defeat Obama on economics but the issue is being lost because of the recovery.
      So it is back to the old red herring issues, abortion, birth control and right wing racism. These dead issues are not selling as people want economic progress not fundamentalist jargon. The jingoists are exploding each other as Mormon religios are rejected by fundamentalist christians and roman catholic papists are rejected by morman bigamists and christian clansmen. The southern strategists are eating their young while non religious modernists are running into the lead with non moralist agendae and real world visions. It is a good time for progress into better modernism and away from moralist regressions into the past. We have a chance to make a better world and I am excited. WRH
