  •  America needs the Republican Party to die. (24+ / 0-)

    Actually, fragment.

    The marriage of Big Money to Big Religion has long been a match made in Hell, and if the Democrats hold the line, a divorce will be imminent.

    The Corporatist Republicans might keep the brand name, so the Ayn Rand Paul Libertarians, the Tea Baggers, and the Evangelicals need to figure out where they're going to go next.

    Libertarians can't coexist for long with Evangelicals. Some of the Tea Baggers are Evangelicals, and both of those groups are collectively stupid enough to believe either what their snake-handling minister, or their snake-oil selling FOXNews preacher tells them to believe. So these two might be able to form a hyper-conservative party; maybe the Teavangelical Party.

    When you have a scam to pull off, blind faith is a beautiful thing. It's worked so far for Rush, Murdoch, and the Kochs. But the monster that the Conservative Dr. Frankenstein built has run amok, trashing half the castle and most of the hamlet. Big Money knows that it needs to be put down, and fast, thus their pitchforks and torches came out of nowhere in the last few days (thanks, "skewed" polling).

    Big Money can now see very clearly that Big Religion loves the suicide mission, because they're lusting for the Rapture. So, End Times? Bring it on!!!

    As Bill Maher said, no one who believes we're living in the End Times should be allowed to vote on next year's budget, because they don't believe in next year.

    Wall Street banksters forecast way beyond next year, or five years, or, well, past Michelle Bachman's Rapturous departure anyway. So the 'baggers and the believers have got to go. They have outlived their usefulness to anyone but short-sellers.


    ★★★★★★★
    None of these America-enhancing outcomes will occur,
    and all of the injuries and sacrifices of those who have suffered (and will suffer) from this stupid shutdown/hostage scenario will have meant nothing,
    if the Democrats cave and give ANYTHING to the Republicans now.
    ★★★★★★★
    The ONLY positive outcome of this mess, the only beneficial impact it can have, is the sundering of the Republican party, and thus a reboot of American party politics.

    If the Democrats give nothing, NOTHING, we "toss them an anchor", then the Republican party will fracture, and the nation will benefit profoundly.

    Anyone seen the Chairman of the Whig party lately?

    •  I'm totally fine with the Republican party dying. (0+ / 0-)

      And preferably dying as agonizingly as is possible for the Republican Lizard people.
