Otherwise, we will lose any remnants left of the American system with a proper balance of a public sector and a private sector that it was in the past. We no longer need a compromiser unless your goal is to define or shape a right-wing nation that has no healthy balance between sectors. Both parties believe in small government and limited regulation and flatter taxes. That is why we are going in that direction no matter the makeup of the branches of government. I can tell you, when I was growing up, there was no debt “crisis”, there was no problem funding public schools, or housing for the poor, or our infrastructure. I will not participate in the dismantling of my country. That means I will not vote for Republicans, Libertarians, New Democrats, or Blue Dogs. My line in the sand has been reached. And when this sick agreement kicks in with its “Super Committee” and the next hostage crisis hits and leaves more destruction in its wake, I hope more people will see it my way. What we have witnessed isn’t compromise. If you don’t believe in right-wing theories, it has been surrender. Compromise is meeting somewhere in some sort of middle. But since only one party does, this all must be by design because it makes no sense otherwise.
