What Common Ground?

Every time I hear politicians from both parties talk about the need to come together and find common ground, I’m reminded of this old Roseanne Barr line; “Ya know what burns my ass? A flame about this high.”

It happens so often that I’m having my doubts whether the politicians in Washington are going to snap out of the political coma they are in. Those politicians who for decades think that money grows on trees. There seems to be only a handful left, Trump being one of them, willing to face the reality of just how deep a hole they have put this country. And it’s not like there’s anything new to expect from spending more than you can afford. Look at any country in socialist Europe, or Venezuela, to see the state of the Welfare State.

What are we getting from Democrats? The same old song, Republicans want to “take” health insurance away from 22 million people. That farce is explained HERE. Republicans want to take away everything we want to give you.

Finding common ground with this bunch is impossible. Like finding common ground with Hamas. They want to kill Jews. Jews don’t want to be killed. Where’s the common ground?  Liberals and Progressives want to tax and spend their way to bankrupt the country by committing inter-generational theft, thereby exacerbating an already catastrophic financial meltdown. They want to ignore the current $20 Trillion debt, and over $200 Trillion in unfunded mandates, and make both worse by running on “free” stuff.  Who doesn’t like free stuff? Where’s the common ground?

What we need is more adults in Washington that have the will, and the guts to tackle the problem. Chart a course for a new America. One that pays its way and doesn’t steal from future generations, and reviving the economic engine and job creation that the country is capable of.

But first, we must win the argument that a responsible government is what we need. Democrats want an irresponsible government, that’s how they get re-elected. Republicans want to fix the problem, that makes them evil. Where’s the common ground?
