However, I am not allowed to drive to Washington and take the Capital by force of blackmail.
I have to play by the rules.
Those rules are called LAW.
Affordable Care Act is already LAW.
However, Michele Bachmann and about 49 pirates (who worship a lobbyists named Grover Norquist, even if they all fuss at each other) actually had a little experiment in hijacking political systems earlier. These thugs managed to steal the Republican Party about a year before the Federal shutdown.
Once that scurvy crew mastered kidnapping a political party, they had the brute experience on how to take the nation.
Therefore a faction of the GOP redefines Constitutional methodology of bills becoming laws, by shutting down the government. Notice the GOP does not say the solution is not raising the debt ceiling. Ultimately, that is the only solution, even if ACA never existed.
Instead of democracy, though, 49 legislators are trying to void a law by blackmail. The Tea Party Caucus seized the budget, whereby a bunch of pirates blackmailed the ENTIRE nation to force a death to a law they don’t like. This behavior is certainly not democracy. This is tyranny.
This Tea Party Caucus is no different. They don’t like a rule, so they make a condition that obstructs obeying the rule. The sad and tragic part is it only took 49 of these blackmailers to seize the Republican Party, and then to seize the USA. Naturally, if allowed to continue, they will harm the entire global economy with a crisis of epic proportions. Ah, they do love drama.

If necessary, I am willing to weave the rope out of grass with my bare hands as I go east to Washington D.C. That’s the kind ‘no guv-mint’ pioneer justice these simpletons seek. I say let’s give it to them.
Seriously, the solution is just 49 people, 10 feet of rope each. According to my math….wait…. I’m forgetting Grover Norquist.
Anyway, the solution to the problem is only 10 feet of rope, perhaps reused 50 times to save costs.
My proposition is a good deal. America gets these monkeys out of Liberty’s purse, and we can all get back to making the nation function. Why isn’t my idea of forced coercion as legitimate as the Tea Party Caucus extortion of legislated law?
The point is that criminal activity - calls for violence or for blackmail - are not acceptable. And no, I am not calling for violence.

I realize there are some who will say that 49 people are not the problem. Well, I agree. It is 49 legislators, and, one lobbyist.
However, if I’m generous with the numbers I agree there might be even 100 Tea Party Caucus legislators who are forcing a nation into shutdown and brinksmanship of default.
I am not just an author. I am also a voter. In fact, I am an independent voter. I have voted for Republicans… in the past. But, the serious lack of control in the Republican party is stomach churning. What a bunch of limp Boehners. And nothing is as useless as a limp Boehner. When a Boehner can’t whip a party into shape, well it’s time for the party to turn off the lights and just go home.
For some reason the Republican party just doesn’t have the guts to stand up to these Tea Party Caucus cry-babies (my apology to Boehner who is the cry-baby champion of the world).
The fight isn’t about principles.
The fight is about ideology.
The danger is that ideology can be a really, really, really, sinister thing. Ideology can embrace a cosmos of good things, while hiding the sole kernel of absolute evil. However, when the core is evil, than the entire system is evil –– even good sounding stuff like ‘family values’.
Witness…. oh… I don’t know. How about the United States government being shut down by 49 legislators with delusions of grandiose ideology.
The Chair of the Tea Party Caucus, Ms. Michele Bachmann said it best:
"We're not the mouthpiece. We are not taking the Tea Party and controlling it from Washington, D.C. We are also not here to vouch for the Tea Party or to vouch for any Tea Party organizations or to vouch for any individual people or actions, or billboards or signs or anything of the Tea Party. We are the receptacle."Yep. Michele is not the mouthpiece. She is the receptacle. BTW - I was greatly criticized for my 'mysoginistic' comment here; I am just quoting her commenting about herself. I removed the *snicker part as that was rather juvenile - but I'm not writing complex stuff here. It's political satire, yanno.*
