I can’t even count the number of times various friends of mine have said what we need more of in politics is compromise. Here’s the thing, compromise is what has gotten us where we are today. The politicians compromise with one another on everything, look at how many “compromises” were made before the passing of that 2,000 page behemoth that is the Health Insurance Company Enrichment Act. Look at the debt ceiling “compromise” where a few trillion will be cut from the budget but over the span of ten fucking years making it meaningless.
I’m sick of compromise, bring on the uncompromising men of principle. Even if the principles of those men don’t correspond with mine I’d be more than glad to give them a vote over someone whose willing to compromise to the point that I’m not sure which way they’ll vote on legislation until the actual vote.
