Opening Up A (Rational) Dialogue With The Left Is A Contradiction In Terms
(It is also a waste of time.)

There is no common ground with those whose only goal is stripping away freedom by dismantling the Constitution. There is no dialogue with those who wish only to dictate. There is no common goal with those who keep moving the goalpost.
The Democrat Marxist party does not want dialogue or compromise…they want submission.
As reasoning people, those on the right have always hoped that we could sit down with the opposition and have an intelligent and reasoned debate with those on the Left. We believed (it turns out naively) that if we could just explain, using logic and common sense, they would see that the arbitrary and usually contradictory policies they impose make no sense in the real world of real people. We always felt if we met them halfway they might see reason and we could work together for the betterment of the country and its citizens - all of its citizens - not just a few handpicked, special-interest, 'flavor-of-the month' groups.
We were wrong.
I think by now those of us who are not completely helpless and hopeless Pollyannas have learned that there is no dialog to be opened because there is no common ground with dictators and their blind totalitarian followers.
Just ask those who tried to reason and compromise with the Bolsheviks, Nazis, Fascists, Maoists, or the Khmer Rouge. The only place dialog ever got them was being shoveled into an early grave.
Thus, not only is trying to compromise with them a waste of time, it is dangerous. They see it as a sign of weakness and it only emboldens them to take more. Quite frankly my friends, we are running out of things for them to take - our property, our culture, our heritage, our pride, our country, our flag, and worst of all, our very liberty.
Trust me on this - they will not stop until they have that as well.
That is why we must stop backing and electing candidates who only want to "talk," blather, dither, and cozy up to the Democrats. We’ve had 50 years of that and look where it’s gotten us.
What we need, beginning yesterday, are fighters. People like a Ron DeSantis who draw a line in the sand and say, “You shall not pass!" (thanks, Tolkien)
Having said that, we must fight them with every means within our power, even if we have to use some of the same unsavory tools they have used steamroll freedom in America.
You can’t fight those who have perfected the art of the steal by taking the high road. They haven’t and never will. They will continue their road into the swamp until they have dragged America down with them.
Oh, they talk a good game but by now every Conservative should know that whatever fast one they’re going to pull or political chicanery is up their sleeve, they will telegraph it in the most blatant way possible. Just listen to what they accuse Conservatives of and you will learn exactly what they are doing. It is a classic case of projection and misdirection.
Armed with this knowledge it should be relatively easy for any politician with an IQ above a cabbage to counter and crush their childish and transparently duplicitous propaganda and blatant power grabs.
So let’s start electing people who will do just that - forget about the phony “bipartisan” dialog. In the Democrat playbook, “bipartisan” is a synonym for “sucker.”
Let’s start electing people who understand what “we the people” want.
We want real Representatives who understand that we send them there to do a job. And that job is not to have a cushy vacation to get rich while surrendering our liberty through pointless discussions and self-serving compromises. It is to fight for America and our liberty.
We don’t need any more Nevil Chamberlin appeasers. We need some Winston Churchill bulldogs who will put the Democrat Marxists on notice just as Churchill did with Hitler when he said, “We will never surrender!”
