More on When Compromise Isn’t Possible

Back when the Tea Party movement was in the limelight, I thought it was pretty cool. America had gone so far downhill I couldn’t blame other nations for hating us, and any movement to restore us to what we used to stand for was worth supporting enthusiastically.

Except…

The more I read about the Tea Party, the more convinced I was that their thinking had one major flaw. They were totally unwilling to compromise. It had to be their way–even though I approved of their way–or else. They didn’t seem to recognize that major changes take time. And often they can only be accomplished by taking baby steps in the right direction.

While I wasn’t certain what I thought of Mr. Trump during the early days of his gaining popular support, I’ve come to appreciate him more and more. While his actions thus far may seem a bit drastic at times, he’s only doing what he’s promised to do. Therefore we elected him to do those things–to do what it takes to make America great again–and I’m counting on Congress to make sure he does that sensibly.

Is Mr. Trump a man who’s open to compromise? I have to smile at the very thought. He seems to have strong convictions and doesn’t plan to deviate from them. I can’t fault him for that. But does that make it easy to get things done? Obviously not.

Because there are the people on the far left who have equally strong convictions. And theirs couldn’t be further from Mr. Trump’s. I’m not sure they even believe America needs fixing, and they certainly seem incapable of seeing the damage Mr. Obama did during his presidency. So those people are afraid of what Mr. Trump is trying to do.

Compromise between the right and the left? Do moderates stand a chance? Alas, it doesn’t seem possible. Not unless the media chooses the middle road: truth.

Please join me in praying that what is best for America will be done in whatever way and at whatever time God desires. How about leaving a comment?
