The right seems to understand that they can throw a temper tantrum and get their way. The left has to be more inclined to grow a backbone and resist conservative philosophies. We know they are capable of it because it’s the behavior they show whenever progressives table the idea of universal health care.
I agree. Now is the time for the Left to gain a backbone. We cannot fight with kid gloves while they are cheating and pulling out all the stops. When you try to debate them, they throw facts out the window and yet people on the Left always try to maintain civility.
Peace is a two way street. For this country to one day stop being so polarized, they will have to do some of the work. I feel that the left and Democrats, in general, keep holding out the olive branch unnecessarily.
