GOP reconciliation

Gunn described a political party like a marriage. He said all marriages have disagreements, but that isn’t the problem. The problem comes when there is no reconciliation. He said every time he and his wife have a disagreement they have a choice to make, they can abandon the marriage or they can work it out.

“The sign of a strong marriage is not that you have an absence of disagreement, but that you have the ability to reconcile,” he said. “The same holds true for a political party…we cannot heal as a party if we engage in name calling or backbiting…we need to talk one another, we need to listen to others’ concerns, we need to value each others’ opinions, we need to respect each others’ thoughts, we must not shut out the voice of anyone who truly wants to be part of the conservative movement.”
