LIBERALS ASSUME THAT COMPROMISE IS ALWAYS THE BEST TACTIC

THIS IS IN RESPONSE TO SOMEONE OF THE MN-POLITICS-NATIONAL DISCUSSION LIST WHO ARGUED WITH RESPECT TO KEITH ELLISON'S VOTE THAT WE HAVE TO COMPROMISE, THAT WE HAVE TO GIVE UP SOME OF WHAT WE WANT IN ORDER TO GET PART OF IT, ETC.

David, what difference does it make whether the bill Keith Ellison
voted for passes or not? Contrary to what you posted, the deadline
is not firm. It contains enough loopholes to drive an escalation
through. The version passed by one of the Congressional houses is
nonbinding. It does not call for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from
the Middle East, allowing them to remain in Kuwait, or even in rural
areas of Iraq away from the major population centers, so they can
intervene if the American established Iraqi government shows signs of
being overwhelmed by the insurgency.
While compromise may be the best course in many situations,
liberals and other political tendencies not only assume that
compromise is ALWAYS the best tactic but react by conditioned reflex,
unthinkingly, and respond to any supposed and alleged compromise by
calling for its acceptance, whether the "compromise" is really a
compromise or contains any actual concessions or advantages.
In such as situation, the only tactic for a real antiwar
Congressperson to follow is to vote against any further war funding
period.
