How can people agree to disagree on issues they must vote on?
When people are mindful enough of the bigger picture and able to work towards it, I think they can agree to disagree on some things while accomplishing important tasks. Ego's and similar things should be set aside.
By giving up or being passive. Too many people keep disagreeing and it can go on for forever. Just give up and move on. We have better things to do than argue and raise blood pressure.
See, here's the thing about that--if you've agreed to put an issue to a vote, then you pretty much have to agree to the outcome of that vote. That's how voting works, whether it's a vote at a family meeting (which is why my wife and I don't put important issues to a vote), a club meeting, a PTA meeting, or a legislative session. Once the vote is taken and counted, you have to abide by the vote, even if you don't agree with the way the vote went.
Of course, sometimes a majority can vote for something that isn't merely unpleasant to the minority but actually infringes on their rights, and then there's a bit of a problem. That's why we (in the USA) have a Constitution that guarantees equal protection, and empowers the courts to nullify laws that violate people's rights, even if the law has the support of the majority. But that might be outside the scope of your question?

Can you be friends with someone who is passionate about political views that contradict yours?I seem to see more and more friendships and family arguments over politics. Whatever happened to "agree to disagree." Can you move past the points you disagree on? If not, why?
