Can we all agree that “owning the libs” is a self-defeating pursuit?

Why do so many people vote and act against their professed opinions and refuse to put on masks to save lives?

Simple. To spite “liberals.”

It’s not because of any coherent ideology. If Americans voted by issue rather than by candidate, the big winner would be “liberalism,” if not “progressivism.” See this Fox News poll, December 2019:

  • 68% of registered voters support a wealth tax
  • 66% support allowing everyone to buy into Medicare
