    ...you will never get the dedicated to believe that. Because they NEED reasons to hate people who are to their left. Because you're not COOL in the US unless you hate people who are even slightly to the left of you. The tea party hates the Republicans, the Republicans hate the 'centrist Republicans' (all, what, two of them?), the centrist Republicans hate Obama, Obama hates the center left, the center left hates the left, the left hates the real radicals (all, what, two of us?).

    But everyone LIKES the group one further to the right from them. And purses their approval and their votes.

    I'm convinced that that's the real reason we keep moving right in this country.

    •  It does not have anything to do with hating (0+ / 0-)

      anyone as far as I can tell. It is just very sad to me that people sit out midterms.
