Who's ready for 4 more years of gridlock?!
We can disagree about religion. We can disagree about politics. but if you like the first three prequels of Star Wars just go ahead an unfriend me right now.
However we were talking about "petty attacks" and not stances now weren't we. Trying to find compromise instead of calling them racist or sexist was the goal was it not?
You are off to a stellar start.
Compromise is a dirty word now a days and that is a horrendous thing.
This left/right polarization is the single greatest threat to our country. All the other threats combined do not equal its severity.
Immigration - secure the border, deport illegals breaking additional laws and give a temporary status to illegals not breaking additional laws (I am not including working in "additional laws") and give them a chance to become legal.
Gay marriage - Marriage is done by churches and all state/fed controlled actions ( regardless of the sexes involved) are civil unions with the exact same benefits as marriage.
Energy - open up drilling on US property and then dramatically push technology in fuel cells, wind, solar, nuclear...thru education, research, awards and tax breaks and most importantly by requiring a % of any profits earned thru that US land owned drilling go to those renewable projects
Enviroment - Support anti whaling projects (and other endangered species projects) that emphasise educating people on the subject, start requiring filters on all industrial smoke stacks. Don't cripple industry but hold them accountable. Reign in the EPA and get it refocused. Do not stop construction and progress because someone found a yellow humpback purple legged flying humper beetle on some land.
Healthcare - No more pre-existing conditions, allow any worker to cover themselves, their spouse and unmarried kids as long as they want for any reason they want. Tort reform, no mandatory requirement to have it, open up all areas to competition for all insurers. No tax dollars for orgs/groups supporting abortion but keep abortion legal and available
If you don't require everyone to have health care, then you can't enforce the pre existing condition. And that is actually a republican argument (speaking of compromise).
Otherwise, it would cost too much.
