Let's face it; our Republican colleagues have looked at terrorism, economic dysfunction, and the political meltdown of the entire Middle East and discovered that the two most dangerous things in the world are: Barrack Obama and... er, us.

The point of being a Republican is not to deal with anything, except trying to stop moderate Democratic rule. That means we're pretending if we expect anything on immigration, global warming, or anything else favored by Obama.  (They really hate him).  Washington will do nothing, even if good for the country in the next years.

So we can't do anything about Washington.  But we don't need Washington for one thing: infrastructure spending.  States could work together, form an intrastate infrastructure bank and ignore the shenanigans of the Low Tax/No Government brigade.

We would have to go around Washington and focus on Democratic states.  State legislatures need to form an infrastructure bank, get corporate loans, all the usual things done by the federal government, and then start rebuilding Democratic states.

It will fix falling down bridges, bad roads, gas pipelines that are blowing up and killing people, and it will put construction workers back to work in Democratic states.

Meanwhile Congress can concentrate on Obamacare repeals and additional Benghazi investigations.

Screw 'em.  Let's just make the country we want from the states we control and let them go to low tax heaven

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
