    As bad as Republicans are they certainly can persevere. The word play they used forty years ago is the same they're using today, and the diarist nailed it.

    "Free Enterprise" is their core. "More Money For Me" is their reason for lviing.

    Our side seems to think that making a correction to their misdirections means that the problem is solved and we can move on. Republicans know that the way a lie becomes a common belief is to repeat it over and over again – for thirty or forty years if necessary.

    What is it in the Liberal personality that makes us, as a group, so adverse to verbal conflict?

    For one thing, we're not on a power trip, and that's hugely important.
    Second, our position – which breaks down to the word "decency" – makes it contradictory to be nasty.

    To save your life read "Pity The Billionaire" by Thomas Frank, and "Winner-Take-All-Politics" by Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson. Then read more books.
