Re: Avoid a shutdown

I am so weary of the GOP’s antics. Watching the way the world markets have reacted the last few weeks, if we give them another year like they want, the uncertainty will have us all dead and buried alive.

2014 could not come soon enough. The odd thing is, much like how no matter what the polls said and was so obvious during last election, they demanded Romney will win the presidency and had the whole base demanding they didn’t lose even after the election was over, and Obama won by 5 million votes even taking some surprise conservative states.

“They” just refuse to get it, no matter what the cost to the nation or their party. They are inescapably daft.

Obstructionist Republicans in the House do not believe in what the first Republican president, Abe Lincoln, led the Union of representative government to (in his words) assure: “that government of the people, by the people, and for the people would not perish from the Earth.”

They have no “issue” other than this end and only try to hide and use anything and everything to obstruct and destroy, from health care to food stamps to college-loan-interest rates to the minimum wages to illegals to Benghazi and beyond. House Republican disloyalties to democracy hold the nation hostage with their self-established rump parliament that is trying to kidnap due process of law. And the ransom is to end law and order via the working of a representative republican form of government guaranteed by the Constitution, which these arrogant few disregard to protect.
