    Republicans are operating on the advice that they brush social issues to the side in order to keep getting elected. We haven't seen issues like gay marriage and drug prohibition take the front stage for conservatives anymore, even as marijuana laws are being erased and gay marriage becomes more accepted. You never really hear about the War On Drugs anymore, or even the Gay Agenda.

    Drug prohibition isn't a totally right-wing phenomenon. And some social issues do vacillate, like the death penalty.

    Didn't say anything about left/right wing. Though as a side issue - do you consider libertarianism to be on the Right (left-libertarianism aside)?

    No, not really. If people have to understand things diametrically, then I guess economically right and socially left is a working shorthand (small-government conservatives can be strategic allies, too), but the vast majority of libertarians I know personally or interact with online are definitely NOT right-wing people.
