Why is it that Liberalism in its modern form is so attractive to so many people?
For Millinia, many a conservative has asked this. The answer is really quite simple.
To find the answer, one must begin to think as a Liberal.
Imagine for a second that you are trying to get a Democrat elected in a Republican district. How will you do this? Well, the Democrat must sound like a Republican, but not too much to lose his/her Democratic base.
The way to do this would be to promise to fund a lot of Republican causes along with your base’s Democratic causes.
When you do this, you realize why Liberalism is so attractive: It’s easy to give away other people’s money.
