    Power's no fun.  When you're in power, you have responsibilities, and have to make compromises, and the results are horribly imperfect because this is an imperfect world.

    Most people here would rather we all sit around out of power, bonding over fairy tales of how great things were if only we were running things, and then cheering for candidates we know stand no chance of getting elected because then at least we can preserve our beautiful fucking dreams.

    I don't really care about anybody's pretty dreams.  I'd rather work for the ugly, compromised reality where at least I'll get maybe 20% of what I want, instead of nothing.
