More of this, please!

I was delighted to see Tea Party activists in Texas working together with Democrat legislators to defeat a law that would have given politicians in that state concealed carry privileges denied to ordinary citizens.  That's outstanding!  If something's wrong, it's wrong, period.  It doesn't matter what party affiliation one espouses - to oppose such measures is the right thing.

Why aren't we seeing more of this?  Why can't Republican legislators work with OWS activists to pass measures that are right in themselves, irrespective of who introduced them?  Why can't more right-thinking (and left-thinking!) people ignore party political dogma and think for themselves, then work together to get things done simply because they're the right thing to do?

I know, I know . . . any minute now I'll break out in idealistic spots!

As the old axiom states, "It's amazing how much can be accomplished when no one cares who gets the credit."

What proposals/demands of OWS would you suggest be supported?
