    The problem with liberalism and progressivism (one of the problems, anyway) is that so often they have good intentions but very poor execution. Look at how the progressives exacerbate the homeless problems in jurisdictions they govern. They seem to be masters at creating problems due to unintended/unanticipated consequences.

    And exactly how do the liberals exacerbate homelessness?

    Which is why liberals will praise another liberal for mucking things up beyond recognition just as long as he "meant" to do well and condemn a conservative for doing well because, they say, he didn't (according to them) have the "right" motivation.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Feelings over substance. Intentions over results.

    Many times, I'm not even certain they have good intentions.

    Your missing one interesting point in your unfortunate generalization that the homeless population quadrupled under Ronald Reagan, and down hill since, because of his legacy..

    Ah, because he bought into the loony left's ideas (namely the Lanterman–Petris–Short Act) which reduced the ability of the state to institutionalize mentally ill people involuntarily. It was seen as increasing the civil rights of mentally ill people. Again, good intentions / unforeseen consequences.

    because of his legacy..
    "Because of his legacy"? That doesn't even make sense.
