A New American Rebellion, Part II

I thought I had said all I had to say last week about the accelerated change in American attitudes toward gay marriage and “illegal” immigration. But there are a lot of other folks out there examining the accelerated politics of the day and generally coming to the conclusion that, after years of moving right, Americans are moving left again.

“Illegal” describes an action, not a person, says The Associated Press; Vice President Joe Biden claims television shows like “Will & Grace” helped change the American public’s attitude toward gay marriage; meanwhile, Kansas legislators are close to passing a law that would quarantine people with HIV.

Why Politicians Listen to Public Opinion on Gay Marriage and Guns but Not the Economy

Recent polls show Americans would rather reduce the deficit by raising taxes than by cutting Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, education and transportation. Yet Congress seems incapable of making that kind of deal. Some 65 percent of Americans want to raise taxes on large corporations, but both parties are heading in precisely the opposite direction.

‘Left, Right & Center’: Same-Sex Marriage and the Immigration Speed Bump

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss same-sex marriage as the issue moves to the Supreme Court. Will the justices’ decision be sweeping? The dramatic shift in public opinion on the topic may be reflected in the Republican Party’s repositioning, but pollster Nate Silver says only 25 percent of the GOP supports gay marriage.

Obama’s Leaked Immigration Reform Plan Could Deliver a Winner

Republicans spent the weekend trumpeting shock and outrage over President Obama’s leaked “backup plan” on immigration. In dysfunctional Washington, this means that prospects for comprehensive reform—including what amounts to an amnesty for the undocumented—are getting brighter.

The Real Debate Over American Citizenship

On one side are those who think of citizenship as a matter of exclusion and privilege—of protecting the nation by keeping out those who are undesirable, and putting strict limits on who is allowed to exercise the full rights of citizenship. On the other are those who think of citizenship inclusively—as an ongoing process of helping people become full participants in America.
