Ernest, I agree most liberals and most Democrats (not always same thing) actually want good things for America. Many Democrats vote for Democrats because Grandpa and Dad were Democrats and so they signed up as Democrats years ago and vote for anyone with a D beside their name. They trust that the politics should be left to politicians and forget they need to actually vote based on the type of government they want not just a political party. Learning about the economy is boring, difficult and they have many other things to do. Learning about many social issues and reading the constitution, the federalist papers and my goodness PPACA 2700+ page bills is hard and they have many other things to do. So they believe the progressive lies.
