Many in today's liberal media would have you believe that compromise is the only way to move the government forward. Liberals believe if you are a principled political candidate of "no compromise," you cannot win. If the New York Giants and the New England Patriots came to the Super Bowl with that attitude, who do you think would prevail? Do you honestly think Coach Bill Belichik and Coach Tom Coughlin focus their practice sessions on compromising with the other team?
The guiding principle of all teams in the NFL is to win. The team that compromises on that principle will never be successful. America's principles come from our Constitution: popular sovereignty, limited government, separation of power, checks and balances, federalism, republicanism and individual rights.
These basic principles should never be compromised in the name of getting along. The surrender of basic principles to achieve some diluted agreement is liberal folly. Basic principles are either followed or not followed.
President Barack Obama constantly chides the Republicans to step away from ideological line drawing and embrace compromise. In his mind, compromise means embracing his socialist ideology and ignoring our constitutional principles. Those internal and external forces seeking to overthrow and transform this country will not compromise. During the Super Bowl, the Giants and Patriots both played the game to win. We are not in a game, but a real life battle to retain our freedoms and principles. Our Super Bowl comes in November. No compromise.
Never miss a local story.
