Bipartisanship forces you to make compromises. Compromises are good, because it keeps you from pissing off large chunks of the electorate.
This is an awfully general statement.
I can give you plenty of examples both current (Don't ask don't tell) and historical (Separate but Equal) compromises that were bad for a party and for the nation.
If you said "some
compromises are good if
they keep you from pissing off large chunks of the electorate. " I would agree... but making bad compromises on important issues simply for the sake of "compromise" is foolish.
I'd like to add that I find your attitude of "[we should not] care about what a minority that is decreasing in numbers, relevence and support thinks" extremely distasteful. Let's just ignore all political minorities and do what the majority wants, eh?
This is a flawed, strawman argument.
First. You are wrong to say that I want to "ignore all political minorities". Quite the contrary. There are plenty of political minorities that I think we should pay more attention to.
I am simply saying that we should ignore a Republican party that is out of touch, hateful and obstructionist.
Given your history here of posting about Hispanic politics, I'd think you'd be a little more sensitive to that.
You don't seem understand politics very well.
"Hispanic politics" (your term not mine) is best served by first marginalizing, and then defeating conservative Republican politicians and their supporters. There is no benefit to "compromising" with people who want to ban Spanish or have mass deportations.
This is reasonable (given the ugliness of these people). It is also politically sound because although Hispanics are a minority they have plenty of natural allies who are just as disgusted by conservative Republicans.
There is no reason to compromise with conservative Republicans. There are enough reasonable groups to compromise with... the goal being to push the opposition (i.e. Republicans) over the edge into irrelevance.
Politics means forming alliances with the good people which whom you can reach agreement. It also means defeating people who are standing in the way of progress.
