Both liberals and conservatives need to hear that they are spewing hatred. Conservatives do hear that, but liberals need to as well.

"You're nearly alone, getting close to extinction."
Conservatives are possibly the majority, but not to the point of blotting liberals out completely.

I think the main hard truth the left needs to learn is that the right considers them to be an enemy that must be defeated rather than a political opponent to bargain with. If they don't start understanding that eliminating the left is the central focus of right-wing thought, and work on voting rights legislation, they'll be swept away before they know it.

that the embracement of change comes with a bullseye......

being a conservative is easy.....all one has to do is go along with status quo......being a liberal means endorsing and promoting change......and that's hard

liberals win out ultimately because change is the destiny of all men......

Liberals need to accept the fact that they were deceived by the DNC and establishment in the last election.

It's not conservatives who are edging liberals closer to extinction. And no, conservatives are not the majority. The left outnumber the right but liberals are a shrinking minority in the left.

Marketing and Messaging from the left sucks. They don't know how to brag when they need to brag.

They also have never figured out how to fight right wing extremists. They are still trying to play nice.

Liberal- "We can make this better!"
Conservative- "I liked it the way it was before!"

Oh, that's easy!

Some people in this country are simply bad.

Contrary to what the distinguished mayor of Chicago says, their horrible behavior is NOT because they are "unloved."

Promoting individual rights, civil liberties, democracy, and free enterprise does not require constantly increasing the power and expense of the federal government. Doing so actually reduces the chances of accomplishing those lofty goals.
