The examples of the "right" moving us backwards in our understanding of the world are numerous, and many have even been discussed in this very forum.

We are way behind many other industrialized nations as far as science and math goes, and it is pretty much due to the "right"... Just look at the Texas School Board, for one prime example... Or, the Creationist Museum in Kentucky.

Pretty soon, many people in the US will be fasioning headphones from coconut shells, and carving out long flat strips of land, expecting manna from Heaven. (Note - Ironically enough, 100% the very same nut-jobs on the "right" would have no idea what I just referenced in this paragraph.)

Puts a little more weight to one of Obama's phrases he's using:
"Forward, not backwards."
