This country is a Republic, yet it is on the same path. So don’t distract from the issue. “Social Conservatism” is just a benevolent (for now) form of Totalitarianism. In time, it will evolve into more restrictive forms. It always has from the beginning of time.
Its impossible to discuss an issue with a person who doesn't understand the correct meaning of words and has an extremist libertarian perspective to boot.
All forms of government are somewhere on a continuum between anarchy and totalitarianism so whats your point exactly.
This is the problem with debates like this - unless you can learn to recognize and acknowledge basic facts there can be no progress, no exchange and no resolution.
