The Republicans have been listening and compromising for many years now. They
have left family rearing, working, praying and tax paying Americans behind with
their go along, get along compromises. They have even joined in the looting and
plundering. At some point a line must be drawn. I don't care from this
lecture from a political insider trying to oil the skids for his RINO masters
Listen to the tea party dictates unreasonable and crazy demands on threat of
ruining the economy?
Amen! A noble and worthy cause to spread. I feel bad for younger
generations which haven't seen a time when our country's leaders were
able to join together and work things out for the good of society. I think there are broad areas we could come together on. Often we have the
same goals--just different ways to accomplish those goals.
Excellent letter. I'm so glad for this sane and reasonable perspective from
a Republican. As a liberal Democrat, I'd be delighted to engage in this
kind of productive dialogue.
What if we had compromised with Hitler, Stalin and the "Evil Empire"?
It was tried by the kindly Neville Chamberlain and by our American appeasers of
Communism. Wasn't it when we made a stand against evil, though, that it
finally fell?Is abortion wrong or do we just agree to compromise?
Let's say we create a "right" for women to kill half of their
babies. Is that what you want?What could we conscientiously agree
on? Could both parties uphold the Supreme Law of the Land? Am I only
dreaming?I think that both our old "system" of health-care
insurance and the new system are flawed and unaffordable for too many honest
people. To begin an intelligent discussion, let's DO utilize
the checks and balances that are implicit in the system, and also consult with
the people, the ultimate check and balance of the nation, about what THEY want.
First of all, though, we need to resist the "unconditional surrender"
demanded by the Left. That didn't work in WW1; that attitude just
postponed an inevitable rematch.
