Why compromise is deadly ~ By Erik Rush

Erik starts out by discussing what is happening in Europe, and what happens when socialist states run out of other people's money:
In Europe, they break things, set fires and attack the police. This is because the sense of entitlement has been so thoroughly inculcated into Europeans' worldview. Their inordinate dependence upon the state causes them to perceive such deprivations as you might if someone stole from your home.
The problem is, the President sees things the same way the Europeans do, and Erik explains why that will make it impossible for the newly elected Republicans to be able to compromise with the Barack Obama and his minions. In fact, it seems as though the new Republicans are going to have to get a little obstreperous with those on the other side of the aisle.

The obvious point upon which a few prominent commentators have expounded – and which altogether too many Americans have yet to learn – is that there is no such thing as compromise with an adversary whose objectives are diametrically opposed to your own. If the pilot of a jetliner wishes to slam the aircraft into a mountain and the copilot does not, there's no compromise; the copilot must neutralize the pilot if he or she wishes to save the passengers.

How many Republican lawmakers are on the same page with those who voted for reform in November? That is, unfortunately, hard to say. It would appear that a few who are leading the conservative charge "get it," as it were, but nearly 50 years of political gamesmanship and visionless, progressive Republican politicians have bred an understandable cynicism among the electorate.

Obama doesn't have it in him to "move to the center" substantially, as did Bill Clinton after the 1994 midterm election, and as some naïve pundits have predicted. Republican lawmakers will, quite frankly, have to be politically brutal with those across the aisle, and with this gross caricature of a president, employ methods and measures that will cause their more moderate colleagues to quiver with revulsion within their gelatinous, invertebrate carcasses.

And engaged Americans must remain as engaged as they were this summer and fall, and at such levels, for many years to come.
