So says the Rand Paul’s and Ted Cruz’s of the world.
That is if your world happens to include extremist Tea Party wing nuts. Yes…wing nuts.
I’m okay if you advocate smaller government and lower taxes. I’m okay if you prefer a more conservative social agenda.
I can even stomach views that to me are patently uninformed and socially irresponsible.
I’m not okay with you taking your vote and going home. NOT legislating. NOT compromising. NOT seeking a solution.
Agreed, we liberals let you walk over us for some time since the Reagan era, and right now my man Obama has no real reason to kowtow to your fanatic demands.
Obama was reelected. The MAJORITY of voters want Obamacare. That you don’t is immaterial. We liberals suffered through two terms of arguably the most inept president in history (W). You need to compromise and vote for a budget…NOW.
The Republican party has been hijacked by the Tea Party extremist. And that makes me sad for them. I believe a healthy democracy thrives when there is a vital difference of opinions–a political yin/yang.
What we have here are a conglomeration of politicos so out of touch with reality that for them to throw a tantrum and shut down the government is no big deal. But it is…it’s a damn big deal for those federal employees not receiving their paychecks. For those CITIZENS…you remember them…those members of our “supposed” representative form of government that YOU WORK FOR…those citizens who are suffering because of your childish philosophical tantrums.
Grow up or get the hell out. NOW.
