    we can no longer start at the compromised position and then compromise further.

    that's a losing proposition, and it is what has been occurring for close to fifty years. it has to stop.

    you don't get compromise to the middle unless your starting position is at least as far from the center as your opponent's is in the other direction.

    those elected officials should be in fear, and respond to the ideology of their party's base in their initial positions. that doesn't mean they should always be obstinate about accomplishing their exact proposals.
