Like many people I’m becoming turned off by politics as usual. Republicans ae looking for an ‘ultra-conservative’ candidate for president because they feel the country has gone too far to the left, and the Democrats accuse the Republicans of going too far to the right.
If the Democrats were looking for a presidential candidate in the upcoming Iowa primary candidates would be bashing each other for being ‘too soft’ or ‘too conservative’.
Since the Republicans are trying to take over the Oval Office they are slamming each other for being too liberal, totally ignoring the problems of the country they wish to serve.
Have you heard any solutions to health care, our overseas activity, taxes on the wealthy, pro or con, how to get out economy rolling, unions, minimum wage, social security or Medicare?
My argument to anyone who opposes what the current administration has done or seeks to do is give me an alternative. I have never dwelled into an issue to argue unless I had a suggested alternative; it may not be a good solution, it may lead into a compromise, or it may be a dud, but it is my attempt to reach out.
You’d have to be an idiot not to know something has to be done with our healthcare system. Don’t like Obama’s healthcare, then offer an alternative, may be we can meet halfway or maybe they can use an idea or two. Have you seen an offer from the other side of the aisle; no just criticism.
If social security and Medicare are in jeopardy, give me your best shot, let’s work together. This crap of standing your ground has got to go, this is not what the founding fathers had in mind. Surely there was a lot of give and take drafting the Constitution and Bill of Rights; there might have even been a fight or two.
The dividing line between the two parties has widened, reaching across the aisle is unheard of.
Compromise is an important word; anyone who wants a successful marriage must understand this. It is not always a 50-50 compromise, sometimes for the sake of harmony it may be a lop-sided compromise but that opens the door for a lop-sided decision in your favor next time.
A person who wants to be a winner all the time is a FOOL!
