“As long as I sit at [US Senator] Henry Clay’s desk, I will remember his lifelong desire to forge agreement. But I will always keep close to my heart, the principle stand of his cousin Cassius Marcellus Clay who refused to forsake the life of any human simply to find agreement.”
To compromise or not to compromise; that is the question. During US Senator Rand Paul’s first speech on the Senate floor, he cleverly used his home state’s history to frame the answer.
Major props to Sen. Paul. This is exactly how I feel about compromise.
