I have to agree with you. I've been noticing this same phenomenon as well.
Let's take the gun control issue as an example.
Before I being, I'm definitely pro-gun. I also lean liberal.
Now the pro-gun conseratives on this board flipped the F out when they just talked about limiting the sale of semi-auto assault rifles(still hasn't
happened yet, probably won't). Do I expect people to not stand up for their believed rights? Of course not. But there is a difference between
discussing why we should limit weapons capable of killing many people, and the response that happened not only on this site, but from mainstream
republicans as well. Some(or most) of the things being said bordered on outright lunacy. And their hate of liberals/Democrats(I don't associate
myself with Democrats,fyi) is getting a little scary TBH.
But more on topic, I truly believe they enjoyed what was happening!!!
Let's talk about the financial cliff/sequester thing for a bit.
WTF is up with that crisis? It seriously has been going on for like 3 years, and we've passed the deadline at least 4 times.
Now either there really is no problem....or they are kicking a huge can down the road.
Either way, the crisis aspect of it is being chewed up by Americans. All Americans.
While you're right that the right is definitely more obvious in their love of crises. It seems to be a growing trend for all Americans. And I think
it's evidence of the growing perversion of our society as a whole.
You know, the political bickering has been heating up, not because there's anything to really argue about, but we just love bickering!
