Remind me again, why do we have two parties?

From my FR profile:
There is no Constitutional justification, or encouragement for us having a two party system.

So why do we have this ugly situation?

Two political gangs, the Republicans, and the Socialists (who have taken over the democrat party) divide the political spoils between them, and make sure no outside candidate, or third political party can ever get elected-with a few minor exceptions.

As a right wing democrat who doesn't have a party anymore, I mostly vote for the stupid, politically inept, anti labor Republicans, because I feel they do less damage to the country and family, and are more suppportive of our Constitution, than are the Socialists,who want to destroy this country.

So you can't really expect either gang to represent you, unless you are a member in good standing, or can buy the influence, either with money, or by delivering votes. -tom

DC = Doesn’t Change

The spiral of a nation continues,
its leadership, absent on duty.

Even the debt ceiling debate is one step removed from the core issue, which is spending.

The GOP House has complete control over that—and yet they originate and pass massive spending bill after massive spending bill.

I’m not sure that the debt ceiling is great leverage for getting the Bush tax cuts continued, because Obama is fully aware of how feckless Boehner and his crew are, and how they would never stand their ground on it anyway. And if Boehner actually grew a pair on the issue, the GOP’s messaging is so bad that they would indeed get blamed for it through the press and in public opinion. IMO it is better, if you’re going to fight the good fight, to do so at the core issue, which is spending.

Finally, there’d be no need for the debt ceiling to keep getting raised if Boehner and crew didn’t keep originating and passing spending bills that make it necessary.

The best thing Boehner can do at this point for the
sake of the country is to hold the debt ceiling where
it is and let Obama fend for every single dollar he
wants to spend.
to what is going on.
highly unlikely...pass the Klintoon Era budgets amts...
and Boehmer must be forced to resign then just go home.

Funny thing is... Nancy and her butt buddies have been telling us for the last six years that the Bush cuts only benefit the rich. So why do they want to extend them?

I just heard Boehner on CBS radio saying there was no deal.

That's probably because Obama refused the deal. Obama won't take 95% of what he wants. He won't settle for less than 105%. And Boner will give it to him, just like last time.

Yeah. I've been debating going libertarian. I don't agree with their social policies, but those things are here or are coming anyway.
As long as I'm not held fiscally responsible for other peoples choices or the clean up afterwords, I can accept it.
At least the libertarians would keep the politicians out of MY life and out of MY wallet. Everyone would be on their own.

The GOP base is not those who make $1 million or more. Can I remind you that these are the people who voted for Obama, so tax them.

Again, millionaires are not GOP's base.

Obama won 8 of the 10 wealthiest counties...so tax them.

I sympathize with you, but why don't you wait until the facts are in and see what kind of deal they actually make.

For me, I don't care anymore.

But as I posted moments ago, the millionaires supported Obama, so tax them.

Victor Davis Hanson has a brilliant column on National Review online today.

Boner is more like Mortimer Snurd. Charlie McCarthy is a bit too smart.

By the way, I just found a group shot of Congress' key players:

I think that's Sheila Jackson Lee in the lower LEFT corner.

Actually this is a smart move

Stretch was running a loose blab about taxing those making more than a million (not the upper middle class)

now Boehner’s plan calls her on it

face it folks, this potus and his tiny little intellect and super big ego NEED a punitive tax on rich people, so someone is gonna get it.

GOP at least trying to limit damage to those making a true million

That’s it GOP I am EFF’N DONE with you sorry little panty wastes.

IF I drag my butt out to vote I’ll vote for Michele Bachmann but not because she is a republican. (why I don’t know, you SOB’s never did a thing for her) but because she is a conservative.

They'll blindly vote for anyone with the (R) after their name.

Does this include transferring spending authority from Congress to the White House?

Already done as far as I can tell. The President goes all over the Middle East passing out money, weapons and blood with out one peep heard from Congress on where/when the money was appropriated for that purpose. No budget for 4 years how would anyone know anything.

Conservative Republicans don’t have to support Boner-Pelosi in the House. We did not lose the election for the House and the Left can’t do anything without the House.

My preference would be for Republican Leadership to stop Obama in his tracks. Well, that’s not going to happen. We lost the election, and we don’t have the power.


ya, it’s not like we have control of the house.. you know where all spending and tax bills start.

oh wait...

To me, it doesn’t really matter any more what kind of deal they come up with, if they come up with anything at all. Sometimes enough is enough and it becomes obvious that I can no longer support what is going on. After this year’s elections, I do not even trust that our votes make a difference. The system is irredeemably corrupt.
