Democrats: Help me find common ground.

The people have spoken. Obama gets four more years. Congress remains split. It's compromise or gridlock, but is compromise possible? Everyone talks about bipartisanship, but they usually mean unconditional surrender by the other side.

It's pretty well known around here that I am a conservative. Liberals out there, let's pretend we're in congress. Pick an issue that you would like to address, and let's see if we can really agree to meet somewhere in the middle.

Tax rates, abortion, drug legalization...whatcha got?

Vote with your lady parts? Dressing up like vaginas to protest? Inventing the narrative the other side has declared a war on women? Did you watch the DNC convention?



For conservatives this election was about the economy, and about removing O from office. We failed. It is what it is...
Its only big on the left because you have an agenda to repeal it. If there wasn't an agenda to repeal it, it would be a political non-issue. Notice, I'm not saying you need to become "pro-choice", I'm just saying stop posturing as though you're out to change the law. Use all the cultural influence you want to change minds to your position, just quit trying to change the laws. When Dems stopped threatening to alter the 2nd Amendment, it worked well for them.

Stop fighting the abortion wars. It's not getting repealed; it's not going away. I'd be open to hearing compromises on this front form you.

We've covered imigration, and are in agreement.


Those three moves alone would bring the Repubs much closer to the pulse of the population in 2012, imo.
I would do away with marriage altogether. Civil unions for consenting adults. Charges can symbolically recognize whatever marriages they want.

Abortion wasn't part of the major Republican narrative. I will concede rape, incest, and life/serious health of the mother. That's as far as I will go.

Sure, there are still radicals onthe right claiming, "He's gonna take your guns!", but there's nothing to back that up and for most of the electorate it became a non-issue. Rebs can't continue to fall 11 points behind in the women's vote and expect to win or gain allies.
That's the opposite of what this thread is supposed to be about.

There are compromise positions available, but most on the left won't settle for anything but total victory.

Gay marriage - Civil unions with some or all of the legal trappings of marriage is a compromise.

Abortion - Limiting abortion to early term abortions or allowing for restrictions like parental notification are compromises. Reversing Roe v Wade and rolling abortion law back to the states is also a compromise.

Conservatives ****ed this up big time by sitting ontheir fat asses believing the election was already swen up months prior. "Our Guy Isn't Your Guy, So Vote for Our Guy"

The Republicans should have won running away. Romney was a horrible candidate.

Exactly who on the right has introduced legislation to repeal Roe vs. Wade?

Not according to the law of the land, it isn't.

Thought processes like this are what hold back the republican party. It's the 50 Years Ago Approach.
