Yes, America (after the war of Independence) was molded on the basis of compromise. From Connecticut to Missouri, in 1787, 1820, and 1850 compromise was possible.
Even after the Civil War, compromise became a workable part of American political affairs. Well into the 20th century. But that was a time when we had a relatively homogeneous population. There was a moral fabric, a glue, and a national culture that emphasized hard work, competition, and merit.
By the mid-1950’s (not the 60’s) everything started to unravel. But even then “some” compromise was possible at the federal level. A working class ‘liberal’ or a ‘democrat’ from the 1960’s didn’t exactly differ all that much from a so called “Republican.”
Today… we all live in a much different country.
Story after story fully demonstrates that there is ZERO chance at any kind of compromise with the Marxist Bolsheviks that call themselves “liberals” and “democrats” and so called “progressives” in this country.
