2. Here is the problem

Based on individual politics, we are a center left country

Based on structural politics, we are center right (or even a right wing) country.

That has to do with structural bias in the Senate, Electoral College, voting restrictions, gerrymandering not to mention the secondary effects that those biases have on the courts and other institutions.

This is what makes it so frustrating to be a Democrat. Being in the majority isn't enough to actually get things done and it sucks.
