My Great Compromise

It’s campaign season. Both sides are ready to go to war over who can better run this country. The problem is we’re taxing this bracket and not that. The problem is abortion. The problem is gun control. The problem is our president isn’t a citizen. The problem is Mitt Romney is a polygamist.

In reality, and this is based off my less than four years and elementary political knowledge, the problem is Polarity. When did compromise make someone look weak? Republican or Democrat or Libertarian or Green party, they’re all just trying to do the same thing. Make our country better. And none of the leaders of these parties are all together stupid..it’s basically a requirement to have some kind of Ivy degree. But really, preach to me with your undergrad knowledge about how this side is stupid or that side is dumb. They’re not dumb they’re polarized.

I liked Mitt Romney for a grand total of 2 seconds because he was toeing the double yellow line between both ways of the road. But to win he had to be ultra conservative. WHY. Ultra anything isn’t working right now. Our founding fathers spent 4 months trying to create this country. And if they were ANYTHING like who we are now..we’d still be writing the first line of the constitution. No one 300 years ago got everything they wanted…why should we think that it’s ok now? Let’s repaint this double yellow we’ve painted in our road toward national success. Let’s bring back the dotted lines that allow some flexibility and let’s us drive on the other side for awhile.

In the end it will get us where we’re going quicker.
