The tide continues to rise worldwide against conservatism. The swell began last year with the Occupy Wall Street movement and has now been caught up by European voters eager to break the yoke of severe austerity. Even Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is tacking to the left saying recently that his fondest memories are of vacationing in Paris, the city of light that is a pariah to those on the right.
What is happening is that the people of the world are looking at the economic ruins around them and waking up to the fact that conservative junk economic policies are the cause of the mess and is what is keeping the mess in place.
Rightist governments all over Europe are falling and some are daring to say that the conservative grip on Congress is about to be broken this November with even the conservative House Speaker saying there is a 1 in 3 chance for a fall.
The Tea Party is completely gone from the political scene and attention is starting to focus on the antics of the conservative majority on the Supreme Court as their Citizens United fiasco slowly drags them under the sea of reasoned legal opinion marking them as mere jesters of history.
What we are seeing now is a return to liberal democracy and a political course change not unlike what happened in the early 1980s here and in the UK only this time momentum is with liberalism not conservatism which like communism is being relegated to the ash heap of history by voters around the globe.
