The other night Senator Ted Cruz, Republican Senator from Texas stood up and spoke against the funding of Obamacare for 21 plus hours. He cited the already proven inefficiencies in the program, the massive $13 trillion dollars added to the deficit and the ever increasing government oppression in our personal lives.
Both Senator Paul and Senator Rubio were in the Senate chambers cheering him on and assisting when Cruz needed a sip of water.
How dumb these guys are. They are fighting with principle against a tide of superficiality and ignorance. Oh sure, there was once a time when the American people took their citizenship duties seriously, following the politics of the day, reading or watching politics neutral reporting and making sound decisions.
These days the American populace is made up of people who can't read the English language and are far more preoccupied with the comings and goings of Miley Cyrus and Beyonce and the last episode of Glee than the doings of their own government, no matter how corrupt that government becomes.
If these radical Tea Partiers continue to upset old corrupted John McCain they will surely split the Republican party right down the middle. These radicals have got to quit insisting on balanced budgets and responsive government. If not, they'll lose every election.
And how dare these Tea Party folks demand that Congress and the President and all their staff and the big unions and corporate donors participate in Obamacare! The Royals do not eat with the serfs! Besides the American people are so stupid they don't even know that the government is paying for their premiums even as they eliminate it as a tax deduction for employers and mandate that healthcare be included as income for taxpayers! These Tea Party folks must be nuts!
The key to success in today's America is to ignore that $17 trillion dollar deficit, ignore Obamacare adding another $13 trillion to that total, promise a free chicken in every pot, free cell phones, more food stamps and more bad home loan forgiveness if they hope to win over this generation of Americans...the last thing they want to hear is alot of bad news out of Washington.
Ironically, the last all night filibuster on the Senate floor was completed by a Democrat; Senator William Proxmire from Wisconsin. Yes, I said a Democrat. He was filibustering against adding to the then national debt of a few hundred million dollars.
How times change. Now all Americans want are a free ride on the gravy train..and damn the costs or consequences. Put it on their grandkid's bill.....and tell those damn terrorist Tea Partiers to shut the hell up!
