David Harsanyi Says America Isn't Destined To Be More Liberal



In a recent Washington Post op-ed, left-wing activist Steve Rosenthal sounds a lot like other wishful thinkers arriving at a comfortable partisan conclusion. America, he writes, is only a few years from a full-blown progressive electorate. David Harsanyi says it just doesn't work that way. Support for gay marriage does not mean support for unions. Pot legalization does not mean we're ready to nationalize energy policy. And support for immigration reform doesn't mean people are prepared to "make everything owned by everybody" as a writer in Rolling Stone suggests. If anything, we're trending toward libertarianism.
