DO REPUBLICANS HAVE A CLUE OF WHAT SHUTDOWN IS ABOUT?
: "Socialized Medicine is the Keystone to the Arch of the Socialist State." __ Vladimir Lenin
When one looks at Republicans in Washington, see their frustration and listen to them talk; then look across and see the actions of the Democrats; if you are not caught up in the forest, you can see something very strange. The Republicans actually think that they can do as in the past and negotiate. Democrats want a long shut down and when Dana Bash of CNN asked Harry Reid why they can’t just agree to fund the NIH and help one kid with cancer, Harry Reid asked, “Why would we do that?” He indicated that he had 1100 people sitting at home with problems to deal with. Yes, he really said it. A Whitehouse Spokesman was quoted as saying that they did not care how long the shutdown lasted because they are winning. In addition to this, never have a President literally announced to the stock market that, “This is different from all times in the past”, and told the world now that the markets should be afraid. Consider this; someone gave the order to actually put up barriers to block 80s and 90 year old World War 2 soldiers from entering an open air memorial. These parks generally need little or no supervision, It cost more to actually put up barriers than to just allow people to walk through.
Republicans seem not to understand what they are facing. Their opposition has taken control of the media, even Fox. While you can easily see the alliance of MSNBC with the Administration, listening to Fox News you will hear things like; both sides are so mean towards each other. Well that is not true. It is the democrats calling their fellow legislators all kinds of names. They have demonized the Tea Party so much so that these people who are mixed groups of all races and parties are thought to be only racist anarchist white republicans. These Tea Party groups refuse to keep around anyone that has a nasty poster, any hint of racism and any that would even leave trash on the grounds.
The fact of the matter is Obama is doing whatever he wants and is daring Congress to do something about it. To get the votes of the people’s representatives, he told them that Obamacare was not a tax. Then he went to the Supreme Court and told the court that it was a tax. Now he has changed the law 19 times. Well under the Constitution only the Congressional house can originate tax law. The Presidency is the executive branch. It can only execute the law constitutionally. But he can act as king as long as no one stops him. These are the things Republicans should talk about continually and stop begging for talks. People hate weakness but love folk standing tall even when the case looks hopeless.
The method used by Obama and his allies is simply Saul Alinsky’s rules for radicals. Let look at some of these rules and afterwards I will tell you the only way Republicans can lose.
