On his show this morning
I really enjoyed listening to this discussion.
"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."
Yes, you don't compromise on principle when so much is at stake.
Only fools compromise with purveyors of fraud and lies.
I'll say it again... any "deal" is SHAME ON US!
If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.
This is well said.
The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. - Heinlein
The conversations are very thoughtful and spot on.
The reason why Ron Paul can't pass anything because, of 100 years of corruption that is occurring in both parties.
and because he actually reads the bills that others are trying to pass, I saw that quote online somewhere and loved it. :P
Mr. Bell, if you look closely at relationships in Protestant canon, you'll see the proper role of patriarchal relationships, i.e. master to servant or husband to wife. You may not LIKE the implications, but such roles are clearly defined. Divorce is a consequence of one or both of the united party being unwilling to adhere to their defined role whether rebellious servant or masterful abuser. United parties MUST be of similar intent, i.e. husband and wife working TOGETHER, so no compromise is necessary. Separated parties of dissimilar intent MUST compromise in order to achieve a goal which is the source of the problem. Compromise is a dirty word at ANY degree and implies separated parties with dissimilar intent. The KEY is eliminating or reducing dissimilar intent through truth and education.
The invasion of Paul's ideology into the GOP will eventually FORCE the neo-conservatives within the GOP to change, compromise or leave. As the invasion progresses and dissimilar intent is mitigated through education and departure, the TEMPTATION to compromise will slowly disappear along with the opposition.
I think Kissinger wrote a book back around the '70s, & his strategy was to think up an outrageous, offensive demand(s) that he knew no one would accept & submit them along with the demands he actually wanted to achieve.
Let the people become outraged, debate, complain & worry.
Later, ask for what you really want & 'compromise' by dropping the outrageous demand.
Outcome: What you REALLY want will appear MUCH MORE reasonable and palatable to your opponent. So, the opponent 'is relieved' over the 'compromise' and agrees to everything you actually wanted to achieve in the first place.
It's using mind-manipulation, relative thinking, to one's advantage.
Don't fall for such tactics, & it would be wise to outwit them using their own tactics and this tactic.
Soon, they will be demanding support of Romney in exchange for something.
It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
We need to get Jerry Doyle to cover this as well
