In a thread discussing what the left and right have in common? Yes, it's difficult. Not to understand who Barry is, but why partisan language would be used in a thread such as this.

FYI, that's where you lost me kovert. I was all ears until I read "Barry." Schoolyard namecalling doesn't interest me.

Maybe that's why you're lost, you've closed your eyes and ears. You're definitely tuned out without actually reading if you're accussing me of partisanship. And wasn't Barry his actually nickname? How is that offensive?

Glad to see these two cats come together against these costly wars.

"As members of opposing political parties, we disagree on a number of important issues. But we must not allow honest disagreement over some issues to interfere with our ability to work together when we do agree.

In order to create a systematic approach to reducing military spending, we have convened a Sustainable Defense Task Force consisting of experts on military expenditures that span the ideological spectrum. The task force has produced a detailed report with specific recommendations for cutting Pentagon spending by approximately $1 trillion over a ten year period. It calls for eliminating certain Cold War weapons and scaling back our commitments overseas. Even with these changes, the United States would still be immeasurably stronger than any nation with which we might be engaged, and the plan will in fact enhance our security rather than diminish it.

In the short term, rebuilding our economy and creating jobs will remain our nation's top priority. But it is essential that we begin to address the issue of excessive military spending in order to ensure prosperity in the future. We may not agree on what to do with the estimated $1 trillion in savings, but we do agree that nothing either of us cares deeply about will be possible if we do not begin to face this issue now."

Many tea partiers may not realize it, but many of them people, certain factions among them have demonized as "socialist nazis" in fact are well aware of the problems with our government.

In fact they have been aware of this and have been organizing well before Paul reintroduced the tea party.

There will always be disagreements but it is possible to find common ground on certain issues.

I highly recommend fast forwarding to 19:25 of this interview.
