    [Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Va.)] suggested the House should reject an unfavorable agreement from the Senate, even if it resulted in a debt default that severely damaged the economy.

    “We have to make a decision that’s right long-term for the United States, and what may be distasteful, unpleasant and not appropriate in the short run may be something that has to be done,” he said.

    Griffith, a former majority leader of the Virginia House of Delegates, cited as an example the American Revolution.

    “I will remind you that this group of renegades that decided that they wanted to break from the crown in 1776 did great damage to the economy of the colonies,” Griffith said. “They created the greatest nation and the best form of government, but they did damage to the economy in the short run.”

      feeds them this crap?  I know the answer, but it takes a "special" kind of mind to come up with the drivel that spews from Ubber-Righties.  It also takes a certain kind of mind to buy into this kind of propaganda.

      Guam, or Puerto Rico, that might make sense.

      Remember, at the time of the revolution, we were a COLONY, seeking independence because the crown was treating us poorly and unfairly.

      So if he wants to move to Puerto Rico and suggest they declare war on the us for their independence, I say go right ahead.
