Since this means the policies remain in place, quality of life will continue to deteriorate. At some point, people will take physical action. It may or may not be intelligent, but it will be change.

For instance, they see a problem, favor and/or implement a solution, and ignore the results. Massive negative unintended consequences mean nothing to them. Even if they make the connection, its acceptable collateral damage. Just look at the left wing poster child of Detroit. It has gone from the most prosperous of cities to bankruptcy, based on politically correct left wing looniness. Yet the denizens vote enthusiastically for the policies which have devastated their city and their lives.

Good morning, karpe diem. And yes, its a matter of priorities. Most of the elements that drive the emotions and thus the actions of the left wing moonbeams are real, just not as important as things they ignore.
Writing 500 bills that they know will never see daylight in the Senate is not just cowardly, it is futile and expensive. Yomama spent 4 trillion dollars in 2013 and the GOP House gave him every penny of it. Uncowardly statemanship would be real negotiation from the position of strength the constitution gives the HOuse.
Might work. Worth trying. Get the PETAs and ELFs on your side to lead the environwhackos, and stranger things have happened. They have turned a crew of prosperous California farmers on the most productive farmland in the world back into okies in a dust bowl.
Not bad, Matt, but you forgot a jihadi from Iran with a suitcase nuke.

"historical default state of tyranny". Great phrase, alopekos. Tyranny, bullying, cheap shot artists, racism, cronyinsm and other personality vices are endemic as births. They just appeal to some part of the population in the absence of dealing with these evils. This means the virtuous portion of the population must protect itself from these people. This can be done on an individual basis, as in the old west, and primitive places like the Amazon Basin, by gov't, or by NGOs like the San Francisco Vigilantes, the Mafia, or the KKK. But tyranny must be fought constantly, because in the absence of any action against it, it wins by "default".
As reward becomes less in some areas, they go where rewards and quality of life is greater. Punishment has been escalating over the last few years and voting for better gov't with one's feet is on the increase.
Working people and corporations go where work and production is rewarded.
Carl Rowan got away with it, and he shot a trespasser. Of course he was black, a knee jerk liberal, and wrote scathing anti-gun columns for the WaPo. Anti-gun for every one else of course, applying the usual left wing double standard hypocrisy.
