To say that Liberals want the country to fail is absolute rubbish. In fact, in the end, liberals win. Jews can join private clubs. Women have the right to vote. Blacks can vote and go into virtually every restaurant. We still have a social safety net. Conservatives faught against every one of these things, and some still do. You can now buy a strawberry jelly with some assurance that strawberries were involved in the manufacture. You can most of the time buy meat that is not contaminated. Conservatives faught against these sorts of product safety measures and some still do. If the country has prospered, it is in large measure due to liberals.

Incidentally, I don't count myself as a liberal as, for example, I would like to see the Department of Education abolished. We were told that education was going to h__k before Federal aid to education, and now that we have it are told that public education is worse than ever. Not every move that liberals have made is a success, but to say they want the nation to fail is ridiculous.
