let's have a war on success! we cannot fail to win
Understand that the US right deliberately has chosen problems that cannot be solved, and then works to make them worse, so that they can have their followers in a state of perpetual enragement (and donation frenzy).
If the rage ever settled, people might start thinking things through rationally.
So pick things that
1) Will never change and
2) Make people angry
There have always been gay people, so: War on Homosexuality.
People love to get buzzed so: War on Drugs. And deliberately war on sources of drugs, certain users of drugs, certain types of drugs, all for various reasons.
People perpetually have sex, and particularly the unsafe kind so: War on Abortion. Also, to some extent: War on Sex.
Now abortion you could mostly win with lots of birth control and education but noooooo.
That might work so it must not be tried. It is forbidden!

It's really quite a brilliant bit of evil.
