Romney's America

So I read that Romney wants to lead us toward "an America of yesterday, where people believed in God, went to Church, didn't screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!"  

The ‘didn’t screw around’ part is especially apt, because it’s common knowledge that people never had affairs prior to 1940.  It is also a proven fact that believing in God and going to church stops crime, makes people mate for life, cures erectile dysfunction, psoriasis, migraines, and leads to world peace.  Speaking of holiness, the sanctity of marriage is never more evident than when that marriage is between a man and a woman, right?  Who cares if the man has to marry five women before he settles down.  What people forget is that sometimes the sanctity has to be “arrived at.”    

Ah, that perfect America of yesterday -- when black people knew their place, gays were in hiding, and women always had supper ready when their men got home from work; when the environment was an obstacle that only future generations would have to worry about cleaning up, and when, if you weren’t a Christian, you were seen as misguided or just plain evil...  Those were the bright-and-shiny days.  Why would anyone not want to go back there immediately?  Clearly, for a society to progress, it has to take at least 72 steps in reverse.
