Some politicians and political pundits claim that "compromising" is necessary to get things done, just like how our Constitution came to be. Yes, our inspired Constitution is a great document mainly designed to limit government and protect our rights and liberties, yet today, most proposed legislation is designed to give more power to the government and limit people's ability to choose.
Why compromise with that? Isn't that exactly why this country's problems are getting worse?
Every time socialistic legislation is passed to correct a perceived problem, two worse problems are created. Then pompous politicians dream up more laws to pass. Compromising often means we acquiesce to increasing debt and have a loss of sovereignty.
Soon we will have no room to wiggle.
