"Normal" is pretty subjective based on worldview, age and where in the country they live since what an 80 year old, a 50 year old, and a 20 year old (three generations) is going to view as normal is going to be very different.

In the era that my parents grew up divorce was rare, in the 70's and 80's no fault divorce laws came into existence and generations since then (outside a Christian world view) would more than likely view it as normal.

Roe v Wade was decided in 1970 and for generations since then abortion on demand is considerably more likely to be considered normal.

it's scary when u think about it... murder becoming normal. Even I... long years ago wondered what the right view on abortion was. But once I saw the gory pictures... babies in trash cans... !! I was 100% NO longer confused.

So you think about people in Congress who have also seen those pictures.. not just once or twice but every time a pro life bill comes up...

and ... as Senator John Kennedy from Louisiana said (though he was speaking of a different Leftie "position".. immigration)

They need an exorcism

I think most of Congress needs one of those... R and D alike..

I submit that America has never been "normal."

Given it's History, one would be hard pressed to call any of the Historical events "normal."

We:

Credit a man for the discovery of America when 6 million people were already living here

Spread disease, captured, enslaved, and killed the indigenous peoples here when we came.

Bought black persons from Africa and enslaved them to enrich ourselves. Bought, sold, chained, beat, and killed them as we would. Man, woman, child, it made no matter.

Fought a Civil War killing untold numbers of our Citizens.

..............and this was all in just the first 100 years......

Normal? What is your definition of "normal?"

In terms of political order, before FDR.

In terms of discernible social order, before LBJ.
