Roy Blunt... Republican senator says time for compromise - Yahoo! News ...seems to forget that America is supposed to be a constitutionally based republic, not a freakin' democracy. Democracy is mob rule at best, requires a massive police force & always is one step away from totalitarian control. Democracy limits then walks all over individual liberty, leading to run a way taxes to cover the debt spending of special interest groups. What is this love affair that people have with mob rule democracy??? I hear the word compromise being flung around Capital Hill like compromise is some kind of Messiah. How does compromise strengthen our federal Constitution & also our state Constitutions??? Does compromise strengthen our Bill Of Rights??? Am I missing something here??? I can't help thinking that compromise leads to more compromise. Enough compromise & we end up with Stalin's USSR, like no individual rights left... just state granted rights that can be changed & nullified by the ruling elite at a drop of a pin. I'm not picking on the GOP exclusively as the DNC are also up to their armpits in undeniable debauchery & compromise also. I do single out the centrist Republican Main Street Partnership(blue repubs) as RINO's on a big government, compromise your Liberties type mission. Special interest, class envy, corporate welfare, world cop, & the womb to the tomb mentality seem to be what's driving the compromise problem. I'd suggest... 1) SPECIAL INTEREST; your NOT 'special' so don't expect anything others aren't getting. 2) CLASS ENVY CROWD; you don't like flipping burgers then get back to school. 3) CORPORATE WELFARE; if your too stupid to run a business then find another job. 4) WORLD COP; if your dumb enough to kill yourselves we can't help you. 5) WOMB TO TOMB; we ain't your parents so don't expect us to take care of you. I'm sure some busy body bleeding hearts that can't stand to be out of the social activity lime light for any longer than a blink of the eye will say... "We're all one big loving human family that need each other 24/7!" We're all ONE? Not that I ever heard like I got my own life. Do you??? Loving? I don't think so, but you can check with the guy that eats other peoples faces to find out how loving he is! Human? Yeah, I'll agree on that one! Family? Last I counted there we're 11 of my family left including 2nd cousins. Jimmy Belinski from Eugene Oregon is not part of my family. Just posted to get some other views from both sides of the issues regarding democracies & compromise, so fire away! Oh, almost forgot! The next time ya get your rigs body work & paint done, & ya see that body looking brand shinny new... except for the 2 big dents that did not get repaired on the passenger side before the body man painted it... will you accept his compromise of 47.00$ less on your bill for not finishing the body work? Moral of the story; "ya can't fix stupid... EVEN WITH DUCT TAPE!"
