    Always is such a strong word, but CU and Not Everything Is Political are two of the more free-speechy-is-peachy boards.

    How goofy do you have to be to think DU EVER! was representative of America?
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.



    Real superheroes don't wear capes. They wear dog tags.

    Yeah, I thought the "any more" in the OP was a bit much.

    Perhaps provincial rather than goofy. When you live in a major city and literally everyone you know from the plumber to the priest, from the guy who delivers babies to the guy who delivers pizza is a far left of center liberal then it's easy to imagine that the world looks like it does from your window. I run into this a lot with black people and Mexicans/Mexican-Americans: they look out their window and have no idea of the actual composition of the country.

    But what that DUer doesn't seem to realize is that there has indeed been a shift, and the urban native born population is shifting on issues such as immigration, welfare, and Second Amendment. I have met a number of younger people over the years who don't think much of religion, who don't care about abortion, who aren't prejudiced against homosexuals, and who don't conform to what a number of conservatives around here think defines conservatism; but they are indeed concerned about individual rights, taxes, regulations, etc... Unfortunately, many of them also don't believe in zoning, code enforcement, valid social expectations, civic duty, etc...
