No, Barrack Obama and progressivism brought this on.....fighting among ourselves won't solve the problem..
Don't call me ignorant....different opinion on how to achieve what we both want, but not ignorant...
Which is why the leadership said it ought not to be attempted...
Could be, but he's said some pretty outrageous things. I think the telephone lines are already melting, and have been for sometime... Look it, I have been a conservative for a very long time....my principles have never questioned as they have the last couple of days. I just don't think have a food fight right now is good timing...that's my only beef.
Would you like to see my inbox, I get Tea Party updates by the hundreds daily. There are no Tea Party chapters in my area, so I subscribed to the Dallas Tea Party membership.
Maybe psydoc, but it appeared to me that most of the leadership was opposed to the demand in the first place....Republicans tried this back in 94, and they knew the outcome...

We first need to elect every republican candidate running for office in the mid-terms, then we can make a mass-conservative move to put pressure on the republicans we elected to act and vote conservatively. I don't see that as a circus stunt. Just as the Tea Party rallies, large numbers of conservatives, of all degrees of conservatism, will help move the republican party to the right. I will add, we are not going to right the 'Ship of State' all at once. It will take a long-term concerted effort to do so. I wish we could just wave a magic wand and have the conservative grubrmnt we should have, but that is not going to happen. First, I was responding to Sloandog who wants to burn telephone lines and essentially inflict property damage....that will go over like a lead balloon. I am all for the Tea Party rallies....that's how we took back the House in 2010. I plan on sending a host of letters to Representatives and Senators from several states to let them know they're on notice and they've exhausted excuses, and it's not just because conservatives demand it, it's the right thing to do for the country. As for the stages of change....I have been saying this for over a year. You are not going to elect a Ted Cruz to go in to the WH and poof, everything changes overnight. You have to do this slowly...Progressives have been at it for 100 yrs...people are addicted to gov and they don't even know what pre Progressive America looked like.
The Sloandog Wrote:12 mins ago (2:50 PM) The shutdown failed only because as usual the RiNOs we are supposedly to hold our noses for sided with the opposition. That's the nexus of this food fight, and it's simply not true. Republican could still be staging a sit-in and Obama would not back down.....of course you'd have to excavate somewhere around earth's core to find a Republican pulse. All the shutdown did was pizz off the electorate...they regarded it as a circus stunt and blamed Repub; Obama twisted the knife closing Parks and Museums.....this is the part I don't get: How did Obama get away with such a purely political nasty thing to do to the electorate, and not get blamed...?
That's a cogent summary of Obamacare, Geek....
Absolutely...this is it, if we don't reclaim some measure of control, we can stick a fork in the USA as we know it...
The Sloandog Wrote:7 mins ago (2:28 PM) Then you must disagree with Ted Cruz also. I actually really like Ted Cruz, and I am proud that we have a Senator who is willing to stand up for conservative values. However, I cautioned before the shutdown that demanding that Obama back away from his signature legislation was never going to fly. I always believed that Obamacare was so ill conceived, and poorly designed that it would fail on its own....and it is...
