I believe it does not matter who gives in. The goverment can work together and do what they percieve to be best for the rest of us.
And there inlies the problem. The people in this country now believe that goverment is responsible for thier well bieng, and all they need to exsist here on earth. This is not the same country that believed in individualism. God given rights and freedom. It has become a country of takers. When a president asked its citizens not tooooo long ago. "ask not what your country can do for you,but what can you do for your country." This idea has been lost. It is now What can my goverment do for me, and I don't care what god given right I have to give up to get it. Just give me what I need and who cares about the rest of the country. I ask people where do you get your money from and they say the goverment. Ask them where do they get it and they say from thier stash. Yes I am in Philly right now and thats the way it is.
