    can only move right.  Congress only moves right, as does the media, and they do it for the same reason.  It is a Pavlovian response, they have been beaten up from the right so often that they just move that way when they encounter any problems.  The political left has tried to take the high road and fight based on logic, the right uses brute force and ignorance and has won.  The left has reigned in their insanely barking dogs, the right uses that as their first wave of attack.  As a result, the left looks weak and small, and the minority conservatives hold the power.  It also helps that the conservatives and the corporations share similar goals when it comes to dismantling government controls. The left needs to be the voice of the people, and the party, and that has not happened.
