    5) Respect for religion and the USA's founders
    respect for the only religion, Christianity. never a bad word or unsavory truth/fact of the founding fathers. they were inspired by the one true god, Jesus Christ and were devout christians

    7) An end to highly sexualised raunch culture
    and basic sex education. and contraception. and innuendo.

    8) High restrictions on abortion
    an end to abortion. period.

    9) Minimal recognition of gay rights
    no recognition. put them back in the closet. a soundproof closet.

    10) High restrictions to immigration both legal and illegal
    a fence, a return of operation wetback, and full-on deportation for the rest. limited immigration favoring cultures more in tune with 'Real America'

    11) Low tolerance for environmental concerns
    there is no man-made global warning. god makes no mistakes. drill, baby, drill. end regulations. let the 'job creators' be free

    Yeah. Some of those things have never been the case while in other cases, they're asking for a return to the status quo. For example, social welfare spending has always been mostly spent on whites, not minorities. But Republicans like to blame minorities for them as David Frum pointed out in his response to Mitt's 47% remark.

    I'd actually like to respond to all of those, but cactusmaac was just listing the reasons of others (albeit much more eloquently than they usually get expressed).

    3) High-quality public schools - unless they want to teach blasphemy such as evolution or sex education that's not just abstinence-only
    4) Low crime environments where children can safely be left to play unsupervised - there's plenty of these, people have just been brainwashed by the media to think that no child is ever safe anywhere, at any time
    5) Respect for religion and the USA's founders - fuck you if you're not Christian
    6) Being able to buy a home with a yard and have enough income left over for one parent to devote all their attention to the family - back in the kitchen, ladies
    7) An end to highly sexualised raunch culture - sex is something shameful and dirty that should be hidden away and never discussed
    8) High restrictions on abortion - usually accompanied by calls for restrictions on access to contraception, proving that the "pro-life" people are simply about controlling women's sexual choices
    9) Minimal recognition of gay rights - back in the closet where you belong, queers
    10) High restrictions to immigration both legal and illegal - I'm pretty sure illegal immigration is already restricted, what with being illegal and all
    11) Low tolerance for environmental concerns - if you can't fuck it or eat it, piss on it
    12) School prayer - shoving Christianity down the throats of all school children, regardless of their/their families' existing beliefs and cultural traditions
    13) Leaving the UN - nobody can tell us what to do, we're America dammit!
    14) Highly aggressive foreign policy with plenty of emphasis on American exceptionalism - see above
    15) Overt patriotism - blindly jingoistic flag-waving, never question what your country does at any time
    16) Low taxes - mission accomplished

    They funny thing is that a large majority of the people who "want their America Back" weren't even born or were too young to remember any of the "good times". And alot of them don't want to give up their free porn on the internet.

    Of course not. If they remembered the "good times", they'd know they weren't that good and they'd be waxing nostalgic about something else.

    Absolutely. When I made that post, I was commenting that they wanted the social version.

    Whenever I think of these kinds of people bantering about wanting “their” America back, I think of two things; Michael Savage and meatballs.

    Taxes are low already.
    I understand that most lack the fundamental ability to actual read and comprehend, but my God, it's not like it's a hard thing to figure out.

    That's something I learned playing Assassin's Creed 3. (Who said video games can never teach you anything...) There is a scene in the game where Ben Franklin discusses the advantages of bedding an older woman. Apparently it is taken from an actual book he wrote.

    Funny how schools teach you about Ben Franklin the scientist and inventor, but they conveniently leave out Ben Franklin the pervert.

    Video clip of Ben Franklin in the game:

    Ben Franklin's job during the revolution was to go to France and bang as many social elites as he could to drum up support for the new nation.

    America has never had high quality public education. We make up for it with a decent college system, but our public education system has always lagged behind.

    I'm not sure the list is what conservatives mean by "take America back." It was just a laundry list of the a political conservative agenda. As above, some of those things never existed. In fact, abortion was legal in most (or maybe many, too lazy to look it up and be accurate) states before Roe v. Wade.
