Do I believe what? That liberals form their views to match their party? That's just a cold hard fact.
Conservatives are much more likely to go against their representatives than Liberals. You don't see Democrat incumbents being knocked out in their primaries. It happens to Republicans quite often. You don't see Liberals staying home and refusing to support a candidate because he isn't liberal enough. Mitt Romney lost a ton of support because he wasn't conservative enough. You don't hear liberal talking heads bashing their own party. Listen to the big Conservative talk radio and they spend more time bashing Republicans than they do Democrats. There is more of an outrage about CISPA passing the house among Conservatives than Liberals. Conservatism is based on the principle of limited government. Liberalism is based on whatever Barack Obama and the Democrat party believes in.
