An Un-mined Gem

Oil on canvas portrait of Alexander Hamilton b...

In cleaning up my in-box, a nigh-hopeless task these days, I came across an outstanding essay by fellow blogger Duane Graham, and was surprised to see that it had garnered no comments.  Now it well might be because it is so well-reasoned, so cogent, as to brook no argument, but I suspect that others might have been simply too busy to read it, just as I was.  In any case, I strongly recommend it to any who subscribe to my blog, whether you be liberal, libertarian or conservative, because Duane’s post addresses the fundamental political processes that have made our country great, processes that party dissension  is rendering ineffective.

    I provided a rather long reply to this blog but then “lost it”. So instead of trying to rewrite it I posted my blog “A COMPROMISE FOR 2012 AND THE YEARS BEYOND”.

    Yes, Hamilton “bent”. But so did others such as those opposing slavery. It was necessary to enact what we have today from BOTH sides.

    I remain convinced you and Duane want to dictate the “compromise” which is no more than trying to sustain a warfare -welfare society that is not within our means. My blog addresses a way “out” of that dilemma.
