Take heart. There are hordes of us:
It breaks down as somewhat uncomfortable, 21 percent and strongly uncomfortable, 42 percent.Liberals have won a string of victories on gay marriage and health care reform this year, but a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds a large majority of Americans are unhappy with where the nation is headed on social issues.Sixty three percent of people say they are uncomfortable with the country's overall direction on social issues these days; four in 10 feel "strongly" uncomfortable about the nation's changes.
Democrats, 43, independents, 68 and Republicans 82. Whites, 69, non-whites, 51.
Try as they might the jackboots have not completely trampled out our sense of real human dignity and decency.
With these kinds of numbers, the damage need not be considered irreversible.
