Within the last few years congress has proven irrelavent in governing and the executive branch has become impotent in their efforts to offer legislation and direction in this country. Instead of tackling the issues they both point at each other and morph all the past battles into one as to prove that the current issue at hand cannot work.
It seems as though there has to be a catalyst that will break the stalemate and help move the country in a positive direction. Could that be another world war, famine or something else to get us to come together and move ahead?
I didn't send my congressman to Washington to compromise!
Unfortunately a lot of other people have forgotten that for a republic to work it needs to cater to the needs of the whole body and not the few. That is how the majority vote was overwritten with new house rules for the super majority. It is a real hinderance to governing fairly.
Politics is the art of compromise. If we don't compromise, nothing gets done.
If it comes with violating ones principles, compromise can stick it. Congress has been compromising on liberty for far too long.
Who can name one piece of important (meaning sweeping, widespread effect, helps a lot of Americans) legislation that has been passed from 2010 to present?

Why do emotions run so high between some Republicans and some Democrats? Is there any room for compromise? Does being a member of the "other party" make a person a bad person?
