While I don't agree - I admit, that was funny.

I honestly didn't mean that as a joke. I know it may come off as short or tongue in cheek but I can't honestly think of one social issue where history has shown conservatives starting off on the right side.

I've brought this topic up before and it probably deserves a completely different thread, but I never started one because I didn't want to start a thread that sounded like I was baiting.

But I'm being completely honest, I can't think of one...

Social issue? Not really.

The only thing I'm thinking of (because it's in the legal sphere and it's recent) is that the dissent in the 2005 New London case (regarding eminent domain), which was written by the 4 conservative judges (or 3+ O'Connor, can't remember) was actually the better judgment.

The left side of the court got this one wrong.

Then again, this may not count anyway since such "leftist" organizations as the NAACP sided with the dissenters, so maybe it's just a bad decision.
