41. The left

The left has not had very much power or influence in the USA; basically, twice. One was FDR and the other, for a time, was LBJ. With FDR, ww2 stopped the New Deal and LBJ ruined it with Vietnam. That was a real blunder.
So, one thing then is that the left has been very frustrated for years. Thus, they are very angry and lash out a lot. That makes it very hard to work with them.
And, there are elements of the left that is quite illiberal.

If we can get a Dem Congress ( both houses) and a Dem president, I think that we can get some work done.
