“Well, where has purity gotten us?”
It seems to me the left has held hard to its convictions over the past few years.
Government controlled health care - win
Gay marriage - win
Regulation of carbon emissions - win
Increase in marginal tax rates - win

Medicaid expansion - win
Student loan program takeover by the federal government - win
Regulation of financial industry (Dodd Frank) - win
Gays in the military - win
Women in combat - win
Racial unrest - win
Government control of the internet - win
Unconstrained government surveillance of citizens - win
High deficit spending - win
Record spending/dependency on welfare programs - win
Control of the education system - win
Politicization of the IRS and the Justice Department - win
Radical appointments to the Supreme Court - win
Radical appointments to the cabinet and the creation of unaccountable “czars” to oversee the bureaucracy - win
I see no compromise from the left on gun control, they keep hammering away. I see no compromise from the left on their relentless crusade against the Christian religion.
The left doesn’t compromise.
You are blind.
The left took Kennedy rather than Ginsberg. Not total victory.
The left took Obamacare over single payer. Not total victory.
The left knows how to take small wins and keep building on them.
Too many on our side refuse to accept a small win, hoping for a total restoration of constitutional order.
Well, that ain't going to happen.
