Can I just say how tired I am of people trying to goyische-ize the Jewish experience? The Emancipation Proclamation is all well and good, but it doesn't belong at a Jewish seder.
Also, I get irked when the mainstream news channels make it sound like everyone in the country is in favor of, or thinks constantly about, such issues as gay marriage, Obamacare, abortion, gun control, and preventing global warming. Evidently, nobody bothers to ask the silent majority, and the Republicans are too spineless to differentiate themselves from the Democrats. We are conservative, not liberal; we are Republicans, not Democrats; and (though some find it hard to believe) we have our own opinions, thank you!
