    Compromise, in fact bipartisan compromise, signed into law by Obama, as effective 1/1/2013, was exactly what brought about the "trade" of letting all of the temporary "Bush" tax rate reductions expire for forcing "sequestration" federal spending cut amounts upon DOD and other "discretionary" federal spending. Simply because that was signed "pre-election" does not make it become "invalidated" or subject to change by "Obama fiat" (mandate?) because Obama simply did not like it anymore.

    Not correct. Because they could not compromise, and felt the election prevented them from doing anything for risk of it costing the election, they invented the fiscal cliff. No one ever intended fr us to go over it. No one. But republicans could have responded by letting us. It was an option. A valid option. They chose not, I suspect fr fear of being held accountable. Still, even now, t,hey can try to broker a real compromise, though from a weaker position.

    The problem is that you see it that way. It leads to where we are.

    The country is at its best with compromise. Both have. To give and get. It's not a bad word.

    Ill give you a hint. It never changes.
    I'm going to stick with Confucius, Karl Marx, Louis XIV, Kim Jong-il, and the prophet Muhammad, but this time I'm going to throw George W. Bush in there for good measure, and they intended for our national religion to be animism.
