"The smart people in this country know that both sides say the same things. If you find one on the democrat side you will find one on the republican side for any crime, transgression, foot in mouth, etc, etc."
This is true about some of the political discussions. However, Liberals and Democrats want to compromise ONLY when they are getting their political a$$es handed to them. Other than that, they do not care what anyone thinks.
"Let's try, just a little to find the common ground and work from there. No matter what political party, what religion, what chosen profession, hobby, etc, etc, if we all look for what we have in common then we can move forward and solve many of our problems."
NO! This is exactly the path that leads where this nation has landed today. Political beliefs (socialism), Religion, etc. DO MATTER.
"Of course, we are all different in some manner and to many degrees, but we are all human beings and we all want to live at some comfort level (to each his own) and being positive is more beneficial to each of us than the contrary."
Yeah, well there is large portion of this country that want to live at the same comfort level as the working folks but at the expense of the working folks. These people have been afforded every comfort level under the sun without having to work for it. Now (in the name of fairness) they EXPECT IT.
"There is always room for compromise since no one has a monopoly on the correct ideas for everything......."
No there is not always room for compromise.
Compromise, fairness, diversity, racism etc. are all metaphors for people that want something for nothing or at the expense of others. The Democrats and Liberals have beat these drums over the years to the point in which they now falling on deaf ears. These terms are now meaningless.
The majority of the American people have said enough is enough.
