Today’s family values are not your father’s family values

Younger voters have been schooled to embrace cultural diversity which clashes with traditional Republican social conservatism.

Your average high school graduate may have difficulty comprehending what he’s reading. He may lack the ability to write intelligibly. He can’t add, subtract, multiply and divide without the use of an electronic device. He sure as hell can’t spell. He probably can’t give you the geographical location of most countries. He couldn’t identify most of the states on a blank map of the U.S. He may not be able to answer the question: Who’s buried in Grant’s Tomb?

However, high school graduates have received a multicultural education which teaches them to accept and love individuals that are different from them with respect to race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. They have been schooled in the ways of safe sex and pregnancy termination. They’ve been handed prophylactics and contraceptives. Those that move on to colleges and universities are given heavy doses of liberal values by their professors - the vast majority of those professors are liberals and quite a few are avowed Marxists.

So when the Republicans preach family values, rail against the inclusion of contraceptives as medical benefits, and are adamantly opposed to abortions, they are preaching to an ever shrinking choir. To most of today’s voters that choir is singing off key. That is why we are going to have four more years of Obama.

Back in the 1980s, Oldsmobile marketed their cars with the slogan ‘This Oldsmobile Is Not Your Father’s Oldsmobile.’ Well, today’s family values are not your father’s family values. And if the Republican Party continues to stick to its traditional social conservatism, hell may freeze over before we see another Republican elected as president.
