    •  what's your point then? (0+ / 0-)

      if they never vote, and can't be induced to vote, what's the point of pissing on liberals and progressives trying to attract them?

      Voting changes things. That's why they don't allow it.

      •  Because they only make up 20% of the voting public (0+ / 0-)

        between them.  Most voters that make up any party are flexible in their political thinking, whereas liberals/progressives and conservatives are not.  

        Why spend a bunch of time catering to someone wearing cement shoes when you know they aren't moving off their block.  They may not participate as much but that always appeals to the flexible voter.  

        These extremes of both parties think they are getting pissed on unless they get all of what they want and they complain until they get all they want and if they ever get all they want you just end up with a bunch of people that will say I told you so.

        Pissing on these groups is appropriate behavior for a leader of 300 million people, it happens to you guys every single election, your a goalpost, not a platform, like an uncle that's lived too many years, we know you're there, we love you, but if we did things your way, everything would get fucked up.
