With the Republican Primary candidates pandering to every fringe group or sect that happens to be in the state they are currently campaigning, so-called "social issues" are back in the news unfortunately for our country.
These "social issues" should be called "theocratic issues". There is nothing social about them. They are partisan anti-social trojan horses designed to separate, alienate, and divide society and warp the electoral process by digging a big hole in our system. These theocratic issues should be irrelevant in partisan political processes, but they have been exploited and for some naive voters become "single issue" dividers.
So, don't dignify the GOP divide, splinter, alienate, separate partisan self-serving machinations with a term like "social issues". You do our country and our politics nothing good by providing a polite misnomer for these partsian trash tactics.
And remember to turn your clocks to the new daylight savings time tonight or you will be late for work, chruch, or your local political meeting.
