Republican Obstructionism

There is less than a month until our nation's fiscal cliff is reached. While some would have us believe that reaching the fiscal cliff will be the end of the world, in reality, it will barely put a band-aid on our severed limb of debt and spending problems. The problems were not a result of a single presidency. The debt and current spending deficits are the result of decades of spending more money than is taken in by our federal government. It has been exacerbated by two recent wars and the worst economic recession in 70 years.

Fact:The right knew full well their approach and the manner in which they were executing it was a fools errand. With no chance of success.

Instead of trying something different they choose to bash their heads against the wall in hopes that the wall would give up the ghost.

Doing the same thing over and over that has resulted in failure each and every time while expecting success is pretty dang insane.

Well lets see. Conservatives have a choice.

Raise the debt ceiling. I will not mean the end of this country!

Or dont raise it and we default as a nation.

How will that be a good thing?

What do you think about the WW2 memorial thing.

Oh them ol righties want that monument open.

But **** the government workers who have rent etc to pay.

And the tea party is cheering this on like its an awesome thing to behold.

Goodness. Next year. I hope the right pays dearly for this.

Obamas debt is doing that very thing. Stopping the spending will NOT drive us off the cliff, crippling debt is doing that

Conservatives don't hate Govt. They don't wish to be its slave however. The framers spelled out the role of the Federal Govt. States are the ones that have the power.

And what happens if the GOP drives this nation right off the debt ceiling cliff?

What if that triggers an economic collapse?

Why doesn't the high and mighty conservatives do a good job of convincing people their way is the better way?

If its the truth then it shouldn't be hard in getting that message out.

The problem is the right isn't interesting in getting that message out.

The only reason they are acting like they are is because their voters are threatening their jobs with the big bad government.

Highly lucrative being a congressman.

Do nothing and get paid for it. Get drunk at work and get paid for it.

Put 800,000 people out of work and get paid for it.

Whats the solution to stopping market distortion by government? Having no government?

Oh gee that will work out until we see the rise of monopolies like there was in the past before the trusts were busted up.

The liberal socialist progressives whatever you want to call them, do a really good job of convincing chowderheads that they are the answer to the worlds problems. All you have to do is give them the power to take that fellers stuff, and they will give some to you. Sounds great to chowderheads but the devil is in the details.

Whats the money from that tax do. You know it is used to provide for the upkeep of infrastructure. At least somewhat.

But thats bad isn't it.

Please tell me you wouldn't support all roads being toll roads since they are run by private companies who are looking to turn a profit.

Free markets are the answer but you cannot have them when the Govt is causing market distortion at every turn.

Gee what does a tax do? hmmmm well lets see, I believe it raises the price of things unless I failed economics in college.

I know that. But what can be done about it. We both know the politicians wont do anything about.

Its a beast thats whole purpose in life is to propagate itself.
