Average liberals are short-sighted. I'm not talking about the politicians whose motives can be questioned, I'm talking about the average "Joe-on-the-streeet" liberal who hears things like "Tax the rich", "Marital Equality", "Women's rights/health", "Free healthcare", or "Save the planet" and believes them. They look at the immediate situation, agree that there is some injustice being done, and think that the Democrats (usually) have a good solution to fix the immediate problem. The problem is, a lot of times the immeditiate fix can cause irrepairable harm to whatever is being "fixed." Union actions may get immediate results, but long term, the company has to cut costs elsewhere (like by laying off workers) or die (like Hostess)...
