Over the last couple decades, it seems like the Right has been drawing harder and harder lines in the sand. It feels like the extremists are in control of the Republican party. They make a decision, sometimes based on varying levels of honest evaluation of the facts, and sometimes based on their denomination's interpretation of a moral code dictated to them by the bible. And they never move from that position.
For example, I have yet to hear someone on the Right say "There are no weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq."
Now, the issue I mentioned just above, plus my calling out of religion, are among many things that could easily derail this thread. But, I am told this is a place for reasoned political debate, so I hope they don't. I hope they only get discussed in the context of the original questions, which is: Can the Right compromise?
