Without compromise how do you get past Gridlock?
Our government represents us all and not just a single ideology. When an elected leader will not compromise, nothing gets done. That is just the way
The idea is to not let one ideology Dictate to all others. We would all like to call the shots, but this is a diverse country and part of being Free
is compromise. The alternative is in fact a Dictatorship.
We see examples all over the world of this. As messed up as we are at times, it's vital that our system of checks and balances protect us from each
other. We see the result of having an Ideologue in office now. Total nothing. Even when Obama's own Party had complete control he could get nothing
done because not all Democrats agree with his Alinsky style Progressive agenda.
I could easily cite many examples of cases in history where one ideological group wreaked havoc on peoples Freedoms while shoving their own idea of
government down everyone's throats. The Nazi's under Hitler and Communism / Marxism under Stalin and Mao.
We need leaders who can work together to make this place functional again. The beauty of the Constitution is it ensures no single minded group can
control everyone else. At least that is how it is supposed to work; unlike now under the iron fist of hard core President who see the Constitution as
a roadblock to him acting as a Dictator.
....and yes I do see Obama in that light. We are stupid things to be controlled and pitied in his mind. None of us know how any person we elect to the
Presidency will act after they have that kind of power. The real Obama is nothing like the Candidate Obama. All of them are unknowns the first time
they lay their hands on that kind of power. That power corrupts is indisputable.
I imagine that when Obama was elected his supporters thought he was very different than he is.
If we end up with another Ideologue who acts the same coming from the other side, it will be just as bad. I'm more comfortable about Paul now though
since he has been more expansive recently. Still nobody on the planet has any idea how he will react if he become President. At best it's a guessing
Compromise is a rational act unless the intent is total domination and a Dictatorship where one group controls everyone else.
