If we look at the history, it seems like liberals always win over hardcore conservatives. When I say conservative, I mean people who think national anthem gotta be sung only in English, the ones who said slavery was just natural phenomenon etc .... Before the civil war, conservatives who said that slavery was just natural and inevitable lost when Union freed slaves. Then segregationist who were "preserving" American culture and values lost during civil rights movement. Now, it seems like every 50 years or so there is re-evaluation of our beliefs and usually conservative values are disregarded. The hot issue for our times is death penalty and right to own guns. These issues are highly valued by conservatives and the laws have become more strict. I woudn't be surprised if in next 50 years both of these are abolished or atleast severly restricted. Also, I wound't be surprised if gay marriage is one day legalized in US as it is already in some other countries. So this brings us to the question that are hardcore conservative values wrong or become outdated with time? Sorry for generalizing about conservatives (no offence). Hopefully, I made it clear. What's your views?
