    It amazes me that so many people say no. If that's you're answer, please let me know how you would expect anything to ever get done?

    Republicans have been capitulating to and appeasing progressive socialists since at least the days of FDR, and what has it got us?....Two giant Ponzi schemes (Medicare and Social Security) about to go broke, $15 trillion in right-now debt with over $50 trillion in unfunded promises to pay, military personnel in over 130 nations, gubmint schools that suck, a completely out-of-control police/nanny/snoop state, drug infested inner cities that are basically demilitarized zones, a bankrupt social welfare state, a prison-industrial complex that rivals communist China, on and on and on....And then we get brain dead twirp politicians who try and tell us the only reason that none of that crap is working is because it needs their "reforms" to fix it.

    Clearly, compromising with statists has got us exactly nowhere....The less those asswipes, from both parties, do as "favors" to America or to reputedly solve our problems, the better.

    Yes Democrats need to at least pretend to be American and find a way to compromise with Republicans

    No. The nation is past the point of compromise.

    How about the Dems try it some time. Seems to me the only ones being asked to compromise is the Repubix :dunno:



    It would be nice for a 'CHANGE'.

    Were the socialist tyrants who rammed Obolshevikcare up our asses without one republican vote interested in compromise?

    Okay, you guys all blame it on the Democrats (and I assume Liberals). I would certainly blame SOME of it on LibDems but do you really believe the ConservaRepubliTarians have no fault at all in the total disfunction of our government?

    I blame it equally on republicans for being gutless fool appeasers and poorly closeted progressive socialist neocon dinks (see: The Bushes, Newt Gingrich, Lindsey Graham, John McCain), who argue that the only reason that the trappings of socialistic welfare state don't work is because it isn't being run by brilliant and efficient tyrants like themselves.
