    This country is unique compared to most countries in the world. We have so many different cultures, races, religions, etc and people with all kinds of different lifestyles and morals and wants and needs. As much as people want to bitch and moan that "I won't compromise my principles and morals" in this country, you must if its going to run and be fair to all. it seems one big thing people fail to realize, that what they consider right, others consider wrong. There needs to be compromises.

    It's actually amazing the country runs as good as it does with all these different opinions in it. ANd its no wonder why there is constant bitching about the government, nothing that's ever done can please everybody. Some law or ruling will always have its opposition.

    With our current political structure, compromise is out of the question.

    With instant internet reporting and 24 hour cable news for each political spectrum any attempt to reach across the aisle and seek a middle ground is instantly and viciously attacked.

    Win-win solutions are not sought because they allow the other side to win also.

    Because some who see everything in black and white view compromise as failure.

    How do you compromise with evil?

    Seriously, if someone wants you dead, or wants to enslave you, how exactly do you compromise with that?

    It's time for people to stop selling out their values and actually stand for something or they'll fall for anything.

    :cuckoo:
    example of the close minded person who sees the world as black and white.

    What you consider evil, other's don't, which is the whole point of the thread.

    Some issues are black and white. Using the government to make people dependent. Using the government to attack people's jobs just because it will get you more power. Using the government to take by force more of the people's money so you can funnel it to your campaign contributers is evil.

    Where are the compromises in any of these? If someone wants to kill you, how do you compromise? If someone wants you blindly following them, how do you compromise with that?

    You like to pretend you're so open minded, but you are one of the most close minded people here.

    To use a more appropriate situation, how did Europe's compromise with Hitler work out?

    again, coming from you, that means shit to me. You don't have a clue what open minded is, to you being open minded is believing things without any evidence or logic to support it :cuckoo:
