One of many issues with liberalism or progressive thought is its total lack of response to facts which determine a line of thought or program are invalid or ineffective. Instead, the standard response is to increase funding justified by the fact that unachieved results were due to underfunding or inadequate resources applied. A perfect example of this is the horrible state of public education bastardized by the perverted influence of the teachers unions.
The resistance to change in the government bureaucracy is strong no matter what the politics of the situation is, however when progressive policies take a strangler, it becomes like a spreading cancer consuming all healthy structures, public and private, in its path.
Why does this happen? It is actually quite simple. When subjective thought processes (progressivism) and objective thought processes (conservatism) clash or cross, the subjective dialog usually wins by attrition. The objective thinker cannot logically follow or counter such chaos and is more given to throwing up his or her hands, finally, or losing his or her temper due to the silliness of it all.
There is hope, however. The attack dog of conservatism, Sean Hannity, will not let his opposition change the subject or evade a direct response to his questioning. He needs to "Hannitize" more of us on this one aspect of his repertoire.
