I wonder why people blame Conservatives for the current intensity of political discord. Conservatives, by and large, want things to stay the same. If they ran the world, things would be normal and stable.
They wouldn't be fighting back if Liberals weren't always coming in and trying to screw everything up. Whatever the turmoil is, it's not the Conservatives who are picking the fights. They're only defending themselves.
They're blaming the Republicans for the 2013 government shutdown, because the Republicans wouldn't lie down and submit to the legislation that the Democrats were trying to force onto them.
Well, you're not supposed to lie down and submit when people try to force things onto you that you believe are wrong. I may go so far as to say you shouldn't lie down and submit.
