Things will probably have to get a whole lot worse before a critical mass of voters choose the path of despair that the National Journal warns against: the point where they exit the game.
The difficulty is that the restraint does not so far seem symmetric. What is perhaps most disturbing is the sheer effrontery of the administration. They seem unabashed and oblivious to the damage they are causing. They are telling lies that nobody can be expected to believe, almost as if the stranger hiding under the marital bed explains that hes looking for change he dropped there. He doesnt actually expect you to believe it. What he wants to know is whether youre man enough to call him on it.
There is still some way to go until things become crystal clear; a brief space in which to make certain about what is really going on. Like a scan or ultrasound or biopsy youre waiting on. For once we know the knowledge will bind us. There are dangerous lines to cross, which once traversed make it is hard to go back. Would that the administrations minions had thought that way. The structures of the Republic were designed to make stark choices unnecessary. Permanent power is a chalice no one should want to drink from. Once that cup is tasted something very wicked this way comes.
A very precious commodity mutual trust is at risk in the coming days. If it is trashed and expended, it will be a long time rebuilding it again. We rarely know the value of what we have until we lose it.

That it is still the same old 'DC insider game' to the GOP-E, that they continue to pretend their Democrat colleagues are still worthy partners in trust and dealings.
Watch out for more (and stealthier) 'Gang of Something' in both Houses....
I’m with Jeannine Pirro — the government has lost my trust completely; and I’m teary over it. We need a new broom to sweep out the corruption.
I was wondering when the author was going to get to the point. Well, he did, and did it well. Overwhelm white, patriotic America with mexicans and muzzies and the game is over.
Not for a quick consumption, you can't speed read or glance through skipping every other word.
Lots of gems to pick from, but quite often not suited to link to from FR.
IRS Attack Against Tea Party Assaulted Civility

Disagree completely. An entirely cowardly piece:
"The key problem for the Republican Party and also for conservatives of a whole is deciding what theyre seeing."
WHO the hell on our side doesn't KNOW what we're seeing?
He spends hundreds of words dancing around and ultimately NOT telling the truth. Which is: This is tyranny, and we must fight.
Obama already has implemented many political and social strategies to steal the Congressional House and retain the Senate by hook or crook...
They are turning the underclass into a political class..
Because, the way we (most conservatives) see it, it is probably too late to try to save the current Republic as is. Yet more others see it fighting in a different way, we should respect different view points.
Also you need to consider Wretchard’s background (he had the experience, he lived through one) - MOST of the Americans, even most of the conservatives, don't know what it is like to fight a resistance fight/war.
Absolutely nobody wants a real civil / revolution war.
Thanks, I read through the article, also the FR comment thread.
