I seldom want to quote Bernie Sanders, but I just heard him say something undeniably true. “What was once considered radical is now mainstream.”
Sounds like a good reason not to compromise to me. If he has his way, we will compromise all the way to communism. As he said, we are already over half way there. On the other hand, liberals never want to compromise when it means moving toward being more conservative.
As Lady Margaret Thatcher once said, (No matter how slow it is going, why get on the train if it’s going the wrong way?) Notice I used parenthesis instead of quotes because it is a paraphrase. I heard her on TV one day and I am not sure of the precise words.
I agree with what she said, but I think I would have said that doing such a thing is, “Crazy Nuts,” if I may quote the title of one of my own books.
