    the liberals the most is the not even bothering to try.  The leadership doesn't  even bother trying to make the argument for single payer. They're not even bothering to try and make the argument for increasing spending and not gutting the budget. They're not even trying to make the case for a big increase on capital gains taxes. It's the lack of effort on the part of the leadership to offer a clear opposing vision.  The White House and the Democrats look at the polls throw up their hands and compromise from jump.

    It's not about a rigid ideology, because we are well aware that things don't change in big way, it takes time and effort, but if the leaders of the party are not even bothering to offer an idealized version of what they are trying to accomplish it offers no basis for a middle to be found and it allows the idiots in the Republican party to sit on their hands and extort what they want which makes every bill more conservative then it needs to be.

    I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.
