Are Americans going to remember all the Republicans that helped craft a debt-ceiling policy that purposely gave the Obama Administration and the progressive liberals the power to destroy our military?
When will we hold accountable all the liars and cowards on the right?
Why do we allow any politician to abrogate his or her responsibility to other individuals, or an unanswerable, at times unelected, committee or commission?
We elect representatives to do the job of making decisions. When these chicken s**t, power hungry jerks decide making the right decision might be tough, or even cost them (what they think is their lifetime appointment) their job, they run out and give their authority, which we bestowed upon them through virtue of our sacred vote, to a corrupt panel of highly paid insiders.
When the left wanted to decimate the military and close bases, they knew they would have trouble, so they turned to base closing commissions, so they could claim their hands were clean while communities and our military were damaged.
In the run-up to the Iraq war, the Congress--in which sole authority to declare war resides constitutionally-- knowing the problems we faced and having voted unanimously under Clinton to remove Saddam Hussein, instead of voting for war, voted for HJR 114 in what seems to be an outrageously unconstitutional act, a resolution giving the President the right to go to war AT HIS DISCRETION.
Of course as soon as Bush used his newly created power he was attacked from all sides by the cowards that gave him that authority.

We don’t need a military anyhow. Between the foreigners and the president, but I repeat myself, they’re getting everything they want right now.
Don't have a cow, man. The budget "cut" for the military (if it even ever happens) is miniscule in comparison to the actual budget and debt.
They wouldn’t get away with it near as often if major bills were kept under perhaps 10 pages long(?) I believe all sides like things to be WAY more complicated than would be necessary if we indeed had a limited government.
That goes for the media who make multimillions from the circus that is politics.
Name an issue our g’ment officials do not complicate from gay unions to illegals to taxes.
I could solve most these individual issues in a paragraph or less.
So, why can’t our “repressentatives”???
I think its because they NEED the conditions that make us NEED them.
Otherwise, they are insignificant.
