Lately, the glaring difference I see between Liberals and Conservatives? Liberals can own their crap, Conservatives push their crap over the line and
Actually what we've been seeing so much of lately are not true liberals or conservatives. The squeaking wheel ( loudest) is the one that gets greased
(garners the most attention). In this case the "squeaking wheels" are those at the extreme ends of the liberal and conservative spectrums- and they
are ALL pushing their crap over the line and pointing fingers aggressively!
True liberals and conservatives all are closer to a middle ground than most would imagine, and that is why for many years our government- and the
citizens- were able to give and take and come to compromises that were better for our country, but in the last 2-3 decades that has changed at an
alarming rate mainly due to those squeaking wheels becoming louder and louder. It is not that their numbers are greater than the rest of us as a
collective, it is that they have garnered the majority of the attention of the press which thrives off the viewership (and advertising revenues) that
extremism and controversy brings.
