    Good points to be sure….
    Personally, I like the idea of “giving something to get something”.
    Compromise, of course, is what it takes to advance and move forward and thus avoid the stalemates and setbacks that our government seems to constantly suffer from.
    In business partnerships, in family disagreements and in a good is the ability to compromise that surely demonstrates what our famous Whig Party leader taught us those many decades ago…Henry Clay (the Great Compromisor) knew the value of "giving something to get something!
    The MWP will find difficulty in accomplishing much of anything without embracing a more Centrist attitude…an attitude of compromise.

    True, there is absolutely too much bickering and division in our governing bodies today. Of course compromise is a beautiful thing. However, it may not be part of reality. It seems to me that many of those in the establishment do not understand the word compromise. It seems that their understanding of the word means that we should give in to their particular agenda. And of course most everyone has their own agenda. Not that they are necessarily wrong, mind you, but they also seem to know, (right or wrong), what everyone needs or wants. It also seems that they are more for their parties agenda than what is best for the majority of the people. At least this is the impression that I have gotten from the rhetoric that has been transpiring over the years.

    If we could get members of the establishment to set aside their own individual agendas, (at least temporarily), and to openly discuss the prevailing issues we might truly be able to compromise.

    But, I think, this is not the real immediate challenge for us. That challenge, I believe, is waking up our fellow Americans that this is our country, and those so called representatives work for us. I believe for the Modern Whig Party to truly serve, we need to find out how our fellow American really think. And also, to remind them of those three little words “WE THE PEOPLE”. Then, maybe we can be prepared to go to the negotiating table and discuss the issues in a sane and just manner.

    Perhaps we could take another look at the history of The Whig Party…especially that of it’s foremost personality, Henry Clay
    (aka: The Great Compromisor)
    The MWP could very well serve as the force, that would unite the warring factions of the Republican & Democrat parties.
    Division among Americans can only be healed through compromise.

    There would be no more noble goal!

    I do not believe compromise is a proper word for the whig party. I believe all issues should be fully researched and the best solution used for the common good.
