So what benefits have you seen coming from liberalism over the last 40 years that we benefit from today?
Well, there's legal weed and gay marriage...
Perhaps it was liberalism that prevented us from being taken over by fascists....not counting Reagan, Bush, or Trump...maybe liberalism will take the country back from fascists sometime in the next 40 years?
It's a struggle, it's a tug of war. Neither side gets to explore the most extreme policies in their play book and neither side gets completely ignored. That we are even alive suggests that whatever it is we are doing has worked up to this point.
Y'know something I've noticed...it's a lot easier to change things for the worse than it is to change them for the better.
And if you don't know what you're doing you should probably hire someone who does or leave it the f*ck alone.
