Back to the 1950’s

There have been several articles recently about how Congress is far more white and Christian than the country as a whole — mostly because those of us with a more secular viewpoint are less cohesive and less organized than the bible-thumpers. As long as we have the Electoral College, national elections are being driven by people whose fondest wish is to return to the 1950’s.

Aside from the extreme ridiculousness of assuming that Trump stands for Bible Belt values, I’m wondering when and how the nostalgia for Mayberry is finally going to be so offensive to the rest of us that we organize to push back?
