8. We're trying to build, they are trying to defend. The latter is easier to stay engaged

They keep their base fired up by making them think their beliefs are under attack.

'defending gun rights', 'defense of marriage', 'defending traditional values' etc etc

They get their base to believe it is fight or surrender, which keeps them going all the time

Most of what we are trying to do is fix problems or making things better, which doesn't have that 'back against the wall' mentality.
