Weep for America. The nation has been taken hostage by a collection of Republican rubes bent on treason. We are being terrorized by a gang of malcontent political juveniles threatening to blow up the American economy and send the world into a global depression.
In fact, the U.S. is being held hostage by a freshman class of House Republicans that pledge their allegiance not to America, but to a reactionary and racist movement built out of ignorance and fear known as the Tea Party.
The Tea Party is in the process of trashing the good faith and credit of the United States and bringing ruin down upon the poor and the middle class. Indeed, these Tea Party know nothings are taking us all down the road to debt ceiling Armageddon.
While suckling at the breast of big money – big business interests, and living in a perverse fantasy world divorced from reality, Republicans spent the last several weeks debating and passing debt-ceiling proposals that have no possibility of becoming law – no basis in reality. Their asinine failure to grasp the gravity of the situation has already cost the country dearly while contributing to a dangerous global economic insecurity and instability.
Speaker of the House John Boehner is the metaphorical permissive parent, allowing the children to call the shots and run the house. Boehner is unwilling or unable to take the mantle of leadership. Rather than doing the hard work of negotiation and legislation, Boehner and other Republicans with the cognitive capacity to know better have abdicated their responsibilities as legislators. Their failure to represent the public interest is proof positive of Republican fear of the lunatic fringe that huddles under the banner of the twisted and depraved Tea Party, a cynical political fear of being challenged from the right in the next primary.
While pursuing their perverse economic policies Tea Party Republicans have been conducting a war on women, the poor, the middle class, the unions, and even the American dream. These moral monsters are willing to threaten the education of our children and the retirement of our seniors without a second thought, while fighting tooth and nail to protect outrageous tax breaks and tax loopholes for very rich individuals and very large corporations.
These Republican rubes are ruining our economy and our way of life in the name of their Tea Party insanity. Their treason is despicable.
