...so that we don't self-reinforce the idea that people who disagree with us are monstrously callous and genuinely want the decline of America.

I can handle "disagree". You and I disagree all the time, and you're one of my favorite posters.

But just saying "no" all the time isn't disagreement, it's negation. It's "being contrary". It's totally unproductive. Modern conservatives aren't interested in dialogue, they are interested in dictating terms and holding things hostage.

There was a time when there was discussion. Those days sadly are gone, and will likely stay gone for as long as the Treason Party has any power. If the GOP would toss them aside it would help immensely as they are the source of the "no compromise" meme (or at least the strongest supporters of it). That the GOP does not toss them speaks volumes. They cut Boehner off at the knees the one time he tried to do actual politics instead of just saying "no", and still nothing in the party changed.
