If you don’t want to compromise then maybe we can meet in the middle. Maybe a little give and take if you wish. Perhaps mutual concessions if you would like that better.
I am almost certain we all, for the most part, want the same things. Good health and the ways and means of accomplishing that result. I’m pretty sure we want the best quality education for our children. Good teachers, small class size, clean bright classrooms, and plenty of educational resource. It’s an imperative when filling a glass of water to be able to drink it pure and clean. Every time we take a deep breath of air it too is pure and fresh. I am positive we all would like to be paid a wage enough to support a spouse and at least two kids. Maybe enough to put a little in the bank as well. It also would be really nice to drive down the road and not hit a pothole or two. A pothole that would ruin a tire and rim or wreck the underside of a vehicle. Crossing a bridge in your car would be very good if it didn’t collapse. It would be very good if national parklands, deserts, beaches, and most outdoor recreation was kept clean and cleared of trash and waste. It would be good for commerce if rail beds, waterways, air traffic control, and airports were all well supported with the best technology and the trained people to run them.
All of that would be very good. So, how do we get there? How do we pay for all these wished for things. Who is going to do the heavy lifting here? Churches? NGOs? The Rotary Club? The Proud boys? Planned Parenthood? Maybe Jeff Bezos? Wal-Mart stockholders? Who??? What group or entity could do all this? And by what means? Think 300-million. From the working poor to the super rich. The Ma and Pa store to the giant corporations. All can help. All can do the heavy lifting.
