Both sides - R and D - seem to want to eradicate the other. What issues would you be willing to make reasonable compromises on and how so? I'm assuming if you are an independent there are issues you would be willing to compromise on. I'm curious if everyday people are as far apart as our representatives seem to be.

For me, I'm ok with the abortion laws as they are. I see that as an existing compromise.

I think there is some room to compromise on gun control in terms of mental health checks and private sales. The trouble is figuring out a common sense way to do it that is actually productive.

There is plenty of room to compromise in terms of border security imo, but one side seems to be fixated on the wall while the other seems to want nothing to do with border security at all.

Federal budget: Tons of room for compromise there. I'd willing to give up more than enough military spending to pay for the wall and plenty of other things.

Nothing.

You either follow the non-aggression principle or not.

Although I am no fan of President Trump, I actually thought that his offer of DACA extension for wall funding was a reasonable compromise. There has to be a way to keep a DACA person who is going to med school, while deporting those like the guy who shot & killed the cop in CA recently.

If Trump quits, I'd be willing to re-build parts of the existing wall.

But it wasn't a permanent solution. And in three years we could be back in this same position. Meanwhile, he gets his money, and we the DACA kids get bupkus or deported.

Itís not a compromise when someone offers to fix something they caused in the first place.

I would be ok without passing DACA. That's why Trump's little 3-year crumb was rejected. He can't give them a temporary fix for a permanent wall. Besides, the next Dem president can reverse him on DACA.

I'd give up DACA if there is no wall in the deal.

In a compromise you take the original offer and negotiate to improve it. The deal is out there if Dems want it, they could get a permanent DACA deal in exchange for a measly $3-$5 billion in wall funding.
