    Within the next 50 years, do you believe that America will become more conservative or more liberal?

    Why? Why not?

    It will be more liberal.  The millions of Central and South American immigrants that are being let into this country were raised in Socialist environments.  They are more likely to vote Democratic, and keep the Dems in office.  Soon, the liberals will have completely taken over.

      True, which is why Democrats are so in favor of open borders and high immigration. If immigrants coming were conservative, Democrats would demand a wall.

    Well, it really depend on what u consider as liberal. For example, as somebody who grow up in Asia, I see an interesting situation. Most Asian people, who live in the west, think the west is more liberal, but most westerners who lived in Asia, think Asia is more liberal.

    This is because, the west is more open and accepting to many thing, in comparison to Asia, such as women who are slut, homosexuality etc. However, Asia tends to be more tolerating to things and behavior they don't agree with then west.

    For example, prior to 1980s, the west frequently think unwed mothers to be unethical, as a result, in Ireland, they give the church the authority, to arrest women who are unwed mothers and throw them in private prison run by the church without trial, for been unwed mothers, the women serve a life sentence, the baby is confiscated by the church, because they believe baster childs are abomination, if they are not adopted, the nuns just let them starve to death and bury them in a mass grave. Asia, only stop thinking been unwed mothers to be unethical till the early 90s, a bit over 10 years later then the west, but because, as far back as history recorded, East Asia believe people have the right of freedom, if one don't cause harm to others, society or the state, thus one have the responsibility to tolerate the behavior of others, regardless of circumstances, if their behavior cause no harm to others, society or state. This is an idea that only emerged in the west, since the age of enlightment and till date, isn't yet, fully mature, so, despite Asia only start accepting unwed mothers, bit over 10 years after the west, the sort of brutality that happened to unwed mothers in the west, never happened in Asia, the worst that happen to unwed mother, is to having some desperate housewives, calling her a slut behind her back.

    The current gay issue, is another example, there are significantly more people in the west, that is accepting to homosexuality, yet, gay discrimination is more common in the west, due to society not having a mature understanding of such right of freedom, in Asia, people who are accepting and approve of homosexual behavior is still a small majority, yet, gay discrimination is unheard of, everybody despite not agreeing with gay behavior, would respect and tolerate their right to be gay and nobody discriminate and act prejudice towards gays and when gay discrimination do happen, it is done by western immigrants

    I believe for quite some time that each generation is more liberal (socially) than the previous generation. It's always been that way.
    One generation went from Johnny Mathis and Frank Sinatra to Elvis Presley, The Beatles, and "free love", hippie drug culture, protesting the Vietnam War, no longer trusting the government, legalized abortion, cohabitating unmarried couples, teen pregnancies.
    (That was just in the 50s, 60s, and 70s).
    The 80s and 90s brought Hip/Hop and Gangster Rap. Women begin wearing more revealing clothing, discussion of began about legalizing marijuana as well as assisted suicide.
    Most recently a survey reveals that "marriage equality" have a 80% approval from younger people. This was even unlikely in 2000!
    However the irony is we have more "political correctness" today!
    Richard Pryor, George Carlin, or Don Rickles would have a tough time making it as comedians in this era. They'd have to apologize for just about every "offensive joke" that told.
    In the 1960s it wasn't uncommon to see guests like Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, of Frank Sinatra on The Tonight Show smoking cigarettes or sipping on a alcoholic beverages while being interviewed by Johnny Carson. Today that would be a "no-no".
    A movie like "Blazing Saddles" could never be made today.
    "The Honeymooners" TV show featured Jackie Gleason constantly saying to his wife with his fist bawled; "One of these days Alice, To the moon!" inferring he was going to punch her in the face.
    It always got laughs.
    A man threatening to hit his wife wouldn't be considered {funny} on prime time TV today. "All In the Family" wouldn't be a hit today either.

    I don't know about the next 50 years and I don't think anyone has that kind of crystal ball. I do think over the next 10 years or so, the country will be more conservative. Public opinion sways like a pendulum. That is why we have two political parties. Some years, Republicans get into office and other years Democrats. The reason is the country is more or less evenly divided though my personal belief is that the country is 40% conservative, 30 percent independent and 30% liberal. The evenly divided country is mainly due to the influence of liberal media and academia. As millennials get older and integrated to our economy, they will drift towards conservatism. As we drift as a country and go down the path of western Europe, people will realize what we've lost. People at the end of the day are pragmatic. They will see what really works and what doesn't work and vote accordingly.
