#1 Try watching prime time, broadcast TV these days. There are a whole lot of "uncomfortable" moments. No wonder I gravitate to the History Channel.

#2 Democracy can be a bitch [or is that un-PC to write?]. That's why instead of building new majorities [see the passage of the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts in the house of the people], they choose to seek POWER in the branch of government that believes and acts as though they should be the new aristocracy of the people.

#5 civil unions, yes.

Guaranteed. The people are tired of their voices overriden by robed elitists. In CA, we have the Rose Bird option: buh-bye
