  •  I would like to break their party. (0+ / 0-)

    This has that potential. Their party is fracturing, and in the long run, the demographics are slipping out from under them. America would be a better place if the R party was no more.

    Now, the "sensible", business arm of their party is in direct conflict with the "crazy" arm.

    So in the sense that this situation could drive an nice big wedge in there, it is all about scoring political points, and winning.

    I would gladly trade two years of national pain for a marginalized R party.

    We have the upper hand, and all we have to do is run out the clock. If we talk with Boney while that's happening, fine.

    How many divisions does OWS have?

    •  Y'know, honestly, I respect that. (0+ / 0-)

      I'm just not really comfortable with it as a strategy. That's a pretty big gamble to make, and I'm not convinced that we have the right to force Americans through this kind of hardship for political goals. Even if I do agree that the country would be better off, in the end, with the (current) GOP humbled. But I can certainly see the appeal.
