    Is there any?

    I think there is.

    How's about we discuss that for a change?

    There is plenty of common ground and it would not be so difficult to see if we could just get the doggone politicians and their parties out of the way.

    As a pro-life individual, I have come to realize that there is a lot of common ground between myself and those who are pro-choice. Neither side wants to see more abortions. The other side, the pro-choice side, simply believe government should keep the hell out of other people's business. As someone who generally prefers less government involvement, I can understand their point there.

    Sorry, I'm sure you don't want this to become an abortion thread.

    Yes, there is plenty of common ground... unfortunately so many on both sides are blinded by party loyalty to see it.

    There's plenty of common ground between Democrats and Republicans. Both have a shared interest in preventing an outside party/candidate from challenging their monopoly on the political system. Both parties also like to spend a ton of money on wasteful programs (they just differ on where the money goes for the most part).

    I don't care if the thread leads to a discussion about abortion.....as long ad we establish that nobody is in favor of increasing the number of abortions.

    That would be common ground. Nobody wants more abortions. Common ground.

    What a great thought..talking about what we agree on!

    I'll start. I believe we need to spend our tax dollars in the best way we can for the good of the nation and cut back waste. I am a fiscal conservative, but moderate in many ways.

    Of course there is. But it takes 2 Parties who want to compromise for it to Happen. Neither really wants to it seems.

    What did Obama and the Dems do with their Near super Majorities? that's right refused to compromise to much they could not manage to get 1 or 2 Votes from the other side to pass shit. Then they try to say it's all the Republicans fault.

    Sorry Obama Care and the stimulus Proved you could get things done if you just gave a little, But they refused to give at all on most issues.

    But that is not true. Lefties want more access to more Abortions and support things like Sex Selection late Term Abortions, and Oppose any Measure that might curtail the Number of Abortions, or Heaven Forbid have the people getting them stop and think for a min before they do.

    Where is the Common Ground?
