You can’t compromise with people like Mitch McConnell who steal Supreme Court seats. Trump thinks of everything in terms of winning and losing – that leaves no room for a compromise that would give something to both sides.
I have given up. Democrats have to win the presidency and both houses of Congress and give the Republicans some of their own medicine. I would be fine with compromising if I thought Republicans would do it too but it’s clear that they won’t.
It looks like Democratic voters have figured out that compromise is not possible. Now we need elected officials to understand this, too.
This is an excellent article which shows that Republicans don’t value compromise. I am sure the situation has gotten worse as polarization has increased.
