  •  The Fallacy of Moving Right to Win (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    A common mistaken ideology has convinced many progressives that they must "move to the right" to get more votes. In reality, this is counterproductive. By moving to the right, progressives actually help activate the right's values and give up on their own. In the process, they also alienate their base.

    This is exactly right. Politicians moving to the center have been responsible for validating "conservative" values, which undermines all progressive and liberal candidates.
