She's talking about 'unchecked aggression,'  Submitter. She's talking about drawing a line in the sand.

Which it isn't because for her to compromise it would mean the other person is willing to compromise. Which they aren't and if they were then she would be willing to compromise with them. Which is they whole point she was making.

Depends on what you're compromising on.
Often compromise is just an excuse for politicians to do their usual tricks while blaming it on the other party.

So it's along the lines of "all generalizations are false" or "this statement is false?"

That is almost clever

Compromise in Washington is like "Okay, I'll let you take money from the middle class and and give it to the corporations who are lobbying you... but only IF you let me take money from the middle class and give it to the corporations who are lobbying me.

"I'll let you take away American's 4th and 5th amendment rights IF you let me take away their 1st and 14th amendment rights."

See, compromise.

So... the line in the sand should be movable? We should be flexible about whether or not we'll ever compromise?

Yep. It's not like Democrats have pushed for a higher minimum wage, higher taxes on the wealthy while keeping taxes on the less-wealthy lower, increased benefits for poor people, or anything like that. Both sides are EXACTLY the same!

I have a Pie.

You tell me I shouldn't have this pie and you are going to take it away.

We compromise, and you take 1/2 MY pie.

You come back later and again tell me you are going to take my pie, but again we compromise and you only take 1/2 of whats left, leaving my with only 1/4 of my pie.

You do this again the following session.... eventually I don't have enough Pie to be even worth mentioning... all because we compromised.

NEVER COMPROMISE

Are both parties exactly the same? No. But since 1945 they've clearly been going in the same direction on taxing the 1%. Unless you want to argue that the Democrats have just been extremely ineffective over the last 65 years. I couldn't find a graph with this data ending in 2013, but I highly doubt it's reversed course.

Cute...you do realize that the pie you are losing is mostly going to the people who already have the most pie, right?

Yet, it has become fashionable to blame those among us with the slimmest slices for our national ills.

How is she wrong?  Remember Richard "rape babies are a gift from God" Mourdock?  Before he spewed that little morsel, he was already scaring voters (in Indiana, of all farking places) by saying he absolutely did not believe in compromise, and his favorite thing about politics was inflicting his opinions on someone else.

He was the Teatard that primaried Dick Lugar and gave an otherwise winnable seat to the Democrats.  Voters do reject candidates that are openly hostile to compromise.  At least while campaigning.

It's totally fine to be against compromise. However, that is the essence of how a democracy works. If you never want to compromise I highly encourage you to leave my country and find a dictatorship somewhere that more closely matches your values.

No, the worst position is when a politician has sold you out for the umteenth time.
Dont worry, because I'm sure whatever issue you hold dear is not up for negotiation with them.
Give your guy another chance and he'll stand firm, probably.

...and yet they never seem to compromise on all that free swag they're taking fromlobbyists, unions, movie stars or wealthy tycoons.

While I don't agree with the tea party, I can understand the root of their frustration.  Because, honestly, how would you feel if the left decided to compromise obamacare or abortion rights straight into the bin?
Would you vote for someone who's put a low price tag on something you believed in?

The whole point of political negotiations it is that this works both ways. Not just the right giving up so the left can have stuff.   They've got as much right to be stubborn as you do, and if you touch on an issue they hold close to the chest then expect you won't get a friendly response.

If they're being unreasonable then you can either try to win elections or, failing that, come to the bargaining table with a better offer.

/Alot of parliamentary tactics are bullshiat, but lets face the fact that its all part of the negotiating.
/Maybe we should vote people in to fix that... Oh wait, we did and they didn't fix a damn thing.

There are a ton of things that will make me never vote for a candidate under any circumstances.  I can't think of any Presidential candidates who have even made it to Iowa without eliminating themselves from contention.

Not compromising isn't on that list.
