Never compromise?

An emailer responded to a recent McIntosh Report, saying I talk too much about “compromise” … and that our government always compromises in the direction of “socialism”.
I had shared the concerns of Wichita State University political science professor Ken Ciboski about a movement in Kansas politics to challenge incumbent Republican lawmakers for their perceived moderation … that they are not perceived conservative enough. Ciboski … a Republican himself … feels it is harmful in a democracy when one party or one philosophy seems to be the only one acceptable. He says we always need a loyal opposition and we always need new ideas.
My feeling: is “all conservative, all the time” a potentially harmful view?
As for no-compromise-ever: it doesn’t work anywhere in life or business, why should it work in government? Look at Washington. I rest my case.
Our thought for today is from Jane Goodall:
“Lasting change is a series of compromises. And compromise is all right, as long as your values don’t change.”

Some register R just to destroy the party
Where was the compromise in 2009 and 2010 when the healthcare law was being forced down our throats,and the private sector was being systematically destroyed one field at a time? The only hope for the survival of this country is for constitutional conservatism to outmatch the radical counter-revolution of the far left. There is no place for compromise with those set on the destruction of this society.
