Once again we see Gov. Nikki Haley targeting anyone who does not toe the line on everything she wants (“Who will pro-Haley group target?” March 6). Nationally I see Ted Cruz having the same mentality.
I probably agree with Cruz most of the time and Haley a good bit as well — her unwavering and ridiculous stance on the gas tax aside. But this is not how government works. I would rather get some of what I want than to guard the right field foul pole and end up with nothing.
It is OK for me to stand on issues without compromise in church. It is ridiculous to operate this way in a democracy. Our government is based on compromise. If we keep electing these hardliners, then we need to resign ourselves to living in a third-world state and country with crumbling infrastructure and nothing getting done.
