Liberals have already proven they can't see past their own nose. Their short-sightedness is the only problem here. How about we put this in terms you can understand based on something you vehemently defend today...anthropogenic climate change.
See, there are people who are doing things that release dangerous gases in our environment. These gasses are hurting our climate, and the people. In order to stop that from happening, we have to fight against those people. Since the effects have taken decades to really cause visible change, fighting it has been tough because people are short-sighted...mainly business Republicans of many nations in the world who tend to look at today's climate and not the climate as a whole, past and present.
See, there are people in China who are doing dangerous things that take advantage of our country's economic status, allowing them to prosper positively by impacting us negatively. In order to stop that from happening, we have to fight against those policies and trade practices. Since the effects have taken decades to really cause visible impacts, fighting it has been tough because people are short-sighted...mainly Liberals who look at only today's economy and not the economy as a whole, past and present.
It's the same situation, only different topics. And yet both sides reverse themselves solely because of politics. The worst part is both sides will completely fight against the issue above that applies to them and still blame everything on the other side, and find as many ways as they can to try to prove the two situations are different.
