“Think of the clowns you are referring to. They all have been comprimised. All have their hands in the cookie jar. All bought and paid for. So no, I think it is all a big farce, and we are the victims. Think of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and the house of cards that came tumbling down in 2008. Think about the repeal of Glass-Steagal. Government is not your friend. These representatives dont care about anything but themselves. To your larger point, I think when one side has been rolled (ACA, Filibuster, Executive dictates, etc) you cant really expect the victim to give the abusers a gift, can you? Again, reap what you sow. There is no statesmanship any more. This is an ideological stalemate. I may be cynical, but I think you may be naiive. Again, term limits.”
“what is your point? Harry Reid did it so it is ok?
Stand up for what is right for BOTH parties - Stand up for what is right for America.”

“What is my point? Well, your post, in response to Beatriz criticizing the Republicans, was pleading "they ONLY have to allow a vote". I was simply pointing out that the Democrats, especially in the person of Reid, have also been keeping bills from coming to the floor and not allowing votes to be taken. If you want to take the position that both parties are at fault and doing the same thing, then I will agree with you.”
“Ask Pathetic Harry the same question. Dysfunction is the "new normal". He went nuclear, and now you expect cooperation from the other side? Not likely. Traffic goes both ways. Reap what you sow. Are they (Both sides of the aisle) acting like children? Yes. Do I wish they would all agree on what is good for America? Yes. Term limits.”
“When a lady asked Ben Franklin " What have you given us? " His answer was " A REPUBLIC IF YOU CAN KEEP IT " There is a big difference between a Democracy and a Republic. Democracy is a mob rule which eventually turns into a chaos and anarchy with dictatorship. While a Republic what we are having has three branches of government having equal power.
But we are living in 1984 of George Orwell in it 2 + 2 = 5 and we are having an Inner Party and an Outer Party, they change places from time to time but us the proles in Newspeak will be always on the bottom and they view us as stupid and ignorant”
