    Let me throw a question out there to the members of the Republican party and those who may vote for a Republican.
    How does a sheep compromise with a wolf about what's for supper?
    For those who are in favor of compromising their values with people they have nothing in common with, think about my question and put yourself in the place of the sheep. The wolf will be played by the GOP and supper will be your vote.

    What would you know about compromising your values when it appears you don't have any?

    I don't think it's about compromise, I think it's about truth. If your message is honest, logical and substantiated then you will win people over. Those that are entrenched in partisan politics will never change their minds so there is no use trying to convince them. The people you have to appeal to are the thinking people in the middle who are open to new ideas.

    Good summation. Now you're the sheep do you compromise with the wolf?

    A wise and frugal sheep will be able to out fox a wolf. Once the sheep has been eaten, what's the wolf going to do? He himself will starve to death. The GOP understands this. If they work together and help keep each other fed, they are no threat to each other. That's the nature of compromise.

    Now let's reverse it and let the Dems be the wolf.

    The wolf is not thinking of the future it's thinking of the here and now. So starving to death is not in the mind of the wolf. To the wolf there will always be more sheep in it's mind.

    Now if you were the sheep would you compromise with the wolf?

    If I were the sheep I would learn to stay away from the wolf.
    If I were the wolf I would thank god for providing me with food.
