Bipartisan Compromise sign now

We, the undersigned, distress in seeing the political environment in America at such a divisive and toxic point. To restore magnanimity in our national discourse, we call for a grand compromise between our two major political parties.

We call upon the Democratic Party to support a constitutional amendment that holds that traditional marriages, marriages between a man and a woman, worthy of special public recognition and support above all other types of personal relationships. The recent court case in California has left little doubt that such an amendment is now unfortunately necessary. Most National Democrats, including President Obama, have publicly stated that long-term relationships between two persons of the same gender are not the same or as socially important as traditional marriages. We believe you are sincere.

In return, we call upon the Republican Party to give full measure of support for concerted efforts to curb global climate change. While it is true that a number of Americans are skeptical of the direst warnings on this subject, prudence still calls for some preventive action. Not every house may suffer a fire; not every driver may suffer a crash; but it is still sensible to buy insurances just in case. It is also true that measures to curb climate change hurt certain industries. Thankfully, America has been, is, and will continue to be a powerhouse of industry, innovation, and entrepreneurship. With vision, leadership, and faith, we will surely find new ways to thrive in these changing times.

To our Democratic neighbors, if global climate change poses as immediate and grave a threat as you assert, then why not set aside other divisive issues and focus on this urgent crisis first? To our Republican neighbors, if traditional values are near and dear to your heart, would you not set aside your skepticism in order to protect one of your core values?

We call upon all our national and local leaders to set aside their differences and focus on areas of common agreement; to remember that they are elevated to positions of responsibility for the service of common good. We pray that they will find within their heart the courage to do the right thing.

America is the beacon of democracy and liberty. In these difficult times, we must show the rest of the world that we can rise above our differences and work cooperatively. Our internal quarrels and disunity are being used by dictatorships around the world to justify their rule. But we are confident that democracy will once again show them that our government by consensus is still the best model to move forward. United as one, America will shine again.
