Jared Snider posted this succinct comment on the Congressional Healthcare debate...
Jefferson and Adams almost quit their effort to write a declaration of independence, because each wanted his own terms.
"In politics, you almost never get 100% of what you want. Fiscal conservatives do their cause a disservice when they fail to accept incremental progress. They do their constituents a disservice when they indoctrinate them with the notion that reaching a compromise on legislation means compromising principles or a some sort of abject failure of leadership. That is not how our Founders governed. Jefferson and Madison neither one got everything they wanted in shaping our government. They reached consensus. Side bar suggestion: phrases like "spreading another half truth" and "peddling their lies" doesn't usually lead to productive dialogue. It's just hyperbole. I'm with you on demanding a smaller govt that is a better steward of taxpayer dollars. But you have to be willing to play ball and actually legislate and not just say "No" when you don't get 100% of your wish list."

SoonerPolitics.org is committed to informing & mobilizing conservative Oklahomans for civic reform & restored liberty. We seeks to utilize the efforts of all cooperative facets of the Conservative movement... Content of the diverse columns are solely at the discretion of the dozens of websites who create the content. David Van Risseghem is the founder of this platform. Sooner Politics News is a platform, not a media site. All our bloggers get their feeds promoted regardless of content. As soon as We suppress or delete even one posting, we become an endorser of whatever We didn't censor..The publisher doesn't (and could not) logically agree with all the content, so we would not expect any rational reader to agree, either. What we do hope, is that readers will think for themselves, and at least be better informed of the issues, events, and values that our citizen journalists work hard to provide for free.. We automate much of the tasks so that our sources' content gets as much exposure as possible. We encourage constructive discussion & debate. The solution is more free speech, not less.
