The analogy I always have when I view politics is that of a house already doused in gasoline (i.e. non-asian minorities). Conservatives want to remove all the flammable fluids from the house while liberals want to use the flammable liquids (which could be something like welfare and what not). But neither of them will get to the essence of it which is that even if a crisis is averted, the house is still doused in gasoline and could explode at any time. This kind of reminds me of what Ann Coulter has said about how the democrats have to only pass immigration once while the republicans have to be perfect every time in opposing it.
