Bi-partisanship isn’t lunacy. Democrats and republicans have many ideological differences. Those differences are representative of the vast sea of political opinions held by Americans across the country. We shouldn’t be attacking fellow conservatives for attempting to reach across the aisle and work with our liberal counterparts. In the words of President Lincoln “We are not enemies, but friends … though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.”
I fundamentally disagree with democrats on practically every issue; yet I never forget they are Americans too. I know most of them have seriously held beliefs and they deserve to be part of the discussion. That is the purpose of political discourse. I want to hear their ideas and thoughts and I want to share mine.
The hope is that after meaningful discussions we can forge a solution that works for both parties.
I am glad President Trump sat down with congressional democrats and made a deal. I am proud to have a President who isn’t afraid to reach into the liberals stronghold and try to get governance done. Perhaps we can work on strengthening our 2nd amendment protections next…..
