Former President Bill Clinton is weighing in on the government shutdown, saying the problem is that constant conflict can be a big advantage for politicians at the ballot box.
Constant conflict is actually often good politics, because the more you can inflame your supporters the more likely they are to show up at Election Day, Clinton said on Monday, according to CNN. And if theyre more inflamed than the other side, even if the other side has more people agreeing with it, youll win because your crowd will show up.

He's not wrong. When is the last time you saw a politician running on what he did last year?

So Clinton is against today’s RINO evasion of conflict? Interesting.

From Galatians: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
It amazes me how these leftists grow more and more dark and evil and even boast of it.
I once had a boss whose bible was a book called "Conflict Management".
It was not about managing conflict, it was about managing by creating conflict.
These SOB's that practice this tactic need to die a slow and painful death.
