So I think the Newt Gingrich government shutdown of 1994 is on again. There’s just no one talking about it. The Republicans are trying to usurp the elected government by not cooperating with it. I think I’d much rather come to fisticuffs than endure this deadlock. It’s like the secret backroom deal taking place. We all show up the next day having the shit kicked out of us and act as if nothing ever happened.
Maybe stuff went down. Maybe we play by the rules. Or maybe we just want to watch the place burn. All I know is the Republicans refuse to cooperate. Their obstructionism is so obvious now that a blind man could see it. All that’s left is the admission.
It’s like ‘Fight Club’. There’s no reason to it, just a thrashing of fists. The bleeding wounds of a conservative beat down. If we can’t have our way then you can’t either. The Republican dogma has bourne theTea Party and ultimately; its own demise. They have transcended their dogma and are wallowing in their own political eulogy.
The Republican/Tea Party may think they’re fighting the good fight by resisting every policy the Democrats put forth but in reality they’re just hurting us all. They’d rather watch the house burn to the ground than give up ownership. The President is right in trying to bridge the gap with Republicans. We are all in this together. Republicans need to learn how to play well with others.
We need to talk about stuff. We need governance. We need communication. How hard can it be?
