Modern liberalism, among other things, is a psychological state, in which very-well-off Americans find ways through their income and privilege to be exempt from the ramifications of their own ideologies, while adopting causes and pets that exempt them from guilt over their own status and limitless opportunities. Judging by their concrete actions, they are indifferent to the poor whom they romanticize at a safe distance. In short, voting for larger government and subsidies is seen as a necessary cost of being a reactionary, liberal elite, amirite?

I love how you said "romanticize at a safe distance." You nailed that right on the head. The problem with D.C. is that it has become far too big for its own britches. Career politicians feel entitled to do whatever they decide is BEST for all of us. Representation of THE PEOPLE is no longer their reason for existence. Their causes and goal is to serve themselves and protect their own interests and salaries. As long as THEY and THEIRS are taken care of that is truly all that matters.
