Thank you for this. It is comforting to know someone is catching on. As Thomas Sowell said: "Do not for one moment think that we are either intellectually or morally superior to those Germans who put Hitler in power. We have been saved by our institutions and our traditions-- the very institutions and traditions that so many are so busy eroding or dismantling, whether in classrooms or court rooms or in the halls of Congress and the White House."
First, the good. ... ***Thank you*** I"m tired of the "win elections" by letting America suffer argument, pretending that alone is ethical or a strategy. It is neither. Democrats have planned for the collapse of Obamacare. In fact it *is* the plan. Too many of the GOP establishment, eager to kick any dissent in the teeth, refuse to acknowledge what is pretty well documented fact. If they don't create a strategy around dealing with the Obamacare collapse we can add this health care fight to 100 years of steady, solid progressive ascension as the Republican Party yells at internal dissent. Chess. I've been saying this for some time. "Win elections" is a hope, not a strategy. And the chess masters of the GOP refuse to grasp that. It's a shame a good piece like this was tainted with... "circular firing squads and playing checkers during a game of chess need to step up too" "There’s a perverted sense of satisfaction in sitting on the sidelines, arms folded, while what you said would happen happens. These Tea Party groups are quite good at it" ... *especially* given that is precisely what the GOP establishment supporters have been doing in force the last few days. You're still in circular firing squad mode when you say 'hey you guys really suck but let's all get together'. If you don't want tea party help, just go full McCain. If you do, less condemnation while ignoring the exact same behavior (and worse) from Fraternal Order Republicans, please. Still, thank you. If the "strategy" for Obamacare collapse is 'let it' without plans *including condemnation of Democrats*, we should resign ourselves to socialized medicine and the final step in Democrat rule.
