Acting Against the Public Interest

Our son married into a very liberal family. Since we often have joint grandparent events we see each other often. His inlaws live on a ridge at the top of Coal Creek Canyon. They have a view to die for, perhaps 200 square miles of unbroken forest.

Today, we had lunch and had occasion to talk about the refusal of the environmentalists like Mark Udall to cut fire breaks until there is a fire. It defies common sense, and even staunch liberals can see that. Will that change their vote?

They've been life long liberals, but even liberals can see when politicians are acting against their interests. Less dedicated liberals might shift their votes. These people won't.
