    say it, (most) Progressives, play to lose is because they've swallowed the macroeconomic BS that we've all been taught these last several decades.

    All to the benefit of the Banksters and the few selected billionaire overlords who push the narrative.

    •  Most people who call themselves "liberal" or (0+ / 0-)

      "progressive" are doing so from within the Rush-Limbaugh framed definitions of those terms. Basically "not Republican" is equivalent to "liberal" or "progressive" in their minds.

      And that is a direct result of the framing in the corporate owned media for the last three decades.

      Note, for anybody about to whine about "no true scotsmen" fallacies, I'm not claiming any such thing. I'm identifying the context in which these people self-identify. That doesn't mean they aren't actually liberals or progressives; just that the definitions of those words has been (radically) altered.
