Is there a middle ground somewhere, where a difference of opinion doesn't garner an attack by those w/ opposing views? Different doesn't equal wrong, just different. The founding fathers came together for the common good to start this great Nation. So how did we get to this "Us vs. Them" mentality? It defeats the purpose of what this country was built upon. OH to dream.
Why does everyone have to make it so personal by saying it's hatred? Seriously? I wouldn't expect anyone of the liberals here to ignore their ideals just in the name of trying to find common ground. When it comes to moral issues there is just no way many people will meet on common ground. Some people see things black and white with no shades of grey. It doesn't mean they hate, but rather they see compromise as a step toward something they absolutely do not want.
Personally, I am already pretty moderate. Not everyone thinks the same way though.

Not likely. Everyone has a different opinion of what the common good is. JMO.

Common Good? Every American has the opportunity to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.... What one does with THEIR opportunity is MORE about personal responsibility and less about common good... To find a 'good' that is common between each and every person is difficult because common good can change among individuals, families, communities, etc, etc...

Yes but the powers that be have too much invested in keeping us divided so we aren't paying attention to what they are doing.
