The Art of Compromise

We always hear, or at least we used to hear about the art of compromise in politics.  There would be a debate and sides would be established and parameters set. In the end would come a time of give and take and, presto, a consensus would be established and common ground would be achieved.  I am not always in favor of compromise. Sometimes issues are so gravely important that one should stand their ground. Other times compromise provides a great way to give and take and ultimately meet in the middle for the common good.  For example compromise on life issues such as abortion will not happen for me. Spending on the military or amounts to cut from the federal budget are great examples of issues to compromise on. Unfortunately in our day and in the past 40 years the only compromise in Congress usually means conservatives or Republicans are the ones to give.  Democrats are always the takers. Vivid reminder of this is the deal Tip O’Neill and President Reagan worked out to in the 1980’s to cut the federal budget. O’Neil wanted to raise taxes and cut the budget later. Reagan agreed. Taxes went up and the budget was never cut. That my friends is how the Democratic party views compromise.

Never compromise with the enemy.  Are the radical left wingers my enemy, yes if they want to destroy America.  Killing babies up to and including birth, moving us to socialism, doing away with borders, raising taxes to destroy the country, taking our guns away and taking over our health care with medicare for all..making us a European country with death panels, then yes they are my enemy.  

I stand for the Constitution and freedoms that have been fought for.  I believe in the American way of life, nothing more nothing less. I will fight the left wing ideas and never compromise.  God save our republic. God Bless America the land of the free and the home of the brave. Never compromise your God given liberties.  Never ever give up the good fight of faith. Never! Ever!
