When Does The Revolution Start? — Tea Party Terrorists & Dysfunctional Brats

When does the revolution* start? So over anti-democracy anarchists.

We had an election. You lost by 5 million votes. You are behaving like dysfunctional brats.

“You don’t get to hold the entire economy, the entire country, hostage, because you don’t like the outcome of the election,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren correctly said about Tea Party Congresspersons — henceforth known as Congressional Terrorists.

The Affordable Care Act was passed by both houses of Congress, signed into law by President Obama, was given the American People’s’ endorsement by President Obama’s resounding electoral victory and seat pick ups in the House and Senate in 2012, and was upheld by the US Supreme Court.

Every branch of the government has spoken, as have American voters.

Despite this, a dangerous and menacing wing of the Republican Party serves as puppet master over a weak and ineffective Speaker John Boehner, bringing the US Government to a grinding halt. As a result, 800,000 federal employees are placed on furlough and one million are asked to work for no pay.

This is the price the Tea Party (American Taliban) believes is acceptable for the country to pay to appease their fundamentalist beliefs that destruction is progress and that democracy only counts when it’s their opinions and options considered.

We no longer deserve democracy if citizens don’t metaphorically* storm congress and remove all Tea Party members’ power and effectively make those seats vacant. US citizens should take control now and reinforce their electoral voices by raising their voices, since elections are clearly not respected and clearly have no weight of their own. Rather than voting and expecting our representatives to civilly and respectfully do our — The People’s — business, is this our only hope of expelling the Congressional Terrorists?

No concern is in the thoughts of these congressional terrorists about the lives they are illegitimately harming. That said, worse on a larger point is that this behavior of Tea Party Terrorists is paralyzing democracy.

You know what, difference of opinion is great, so are strong and vocal opinion (that captures me), but what is wrong is when you halt the course of the nation’s business and say it’s the will of the American People. For God sake, we just had a multi-billion dollar national election. If The American People hated the American Care Act as much as the subversives hate it and Obama, then they would have spoken their voices at the election polls. What happened, instead?

Obama won a second term with a massive electoral margin. Democrats picked up more seats in the Senate. And Democrats picked up more seats in the House (this after a hugely gerrymandered redistricting around the nation based upon the latest census and favors Republicans). The American People spoke alright, and they endorsed the President and gave Dems more seats in government.

To act as they do now, radical conservatives want to nullify a ten month old national election.

The Tea Party Terrorists and the Republican Party are anti-democracy.

This point of contention has nothing to do with opinions or whether the ACA is good or bad.

It’s about supporting or subverting democracy and respecting civil order.

    Godwin’s law alert!

    Anyway…

    …was given the American People’s’ endorsement by President Obama’s resounding electoral victory and seat pick ups in the House and Senate in 2012, and was upheld by the US Supreme Court.

    What happened in 2010 the first election after ObamaCara was passed on a party line vote and then rammed through Congress through the reconciliation process? Oh…

    This is the 18th government shutdown since 1976. 15 of the shutdowns occurred when the Democrats had a majority in the House. There were 8 along under Reagan.

    Anyone talking about “revolt” over this political theater needs to step away from politics for awhile. Go spend time on another hobby. We’ll be long dead and the world will still turn.

      Oh, I agree with you about “revolt” over the shutdown itself. The”revolt” should be spurred by the subversion of democracy. If elections no longer matter, how else do “The People” make their voices effective. As I pointed out, the American people had their moment to throw out Obama and Dems just ten months ago. And they chose to re-elect Obama and add more Democrats to the House and Senate.

      I suppose that even though this shouldn’t have to be said, by your tone, I think you glossed over my qualification that this was said “metaphorically.” Geesh.

      You can say they rammed the ACA through the Congress all you want, but committee debate and prep lasted well over a year, and debate and negotiation in the whole Congress drew out for extended time. Over 100 amendments submitted by Republicans were adopted into the law. No, my friend, the process was fair and judicious. You simply don’t like the result, which is totally fine.

      And as for politics as a hobby? No my son. I have headed up legislative efforts for congressional bills funded at over $1 billion (and seen them through to signature and funding). I have organized lobbying efforts that yearly bring thousands of citizens from around the country in a three day blitz visiting congressional offices and office holders. I have served on executive committees under federal agencies. I know how government and the process of politics works.

      Now you toddle off…

    Well, it seems that you are person who has committed a great deal of your life to politics. Have you always been the type of person to turn to gruesome name-calling? It’s really beneath anyone who has made a commitment to public service to call others name simply for disagree about something as dumb as politics especially in this day and age.

    How can anyone claim to believe in public service when they treat other so contemptuously?

      Very simply, because I believe the Tea Party members are an existential threat to democracy and rule of law. That makes me emotional. It should make many people emotional That’s what MY site is about. An outlet for my emotions and interests. I can’t do that in my public life, but I can do it here. I’m sure we all say things to our friends we would never have printed in a paper or in the nightly news. More to your point, I would never call people as I’ve named them here just because we disagreed on a political matter. I happen to like disagreement. Its stirs up better and more thoughtful answers to problems. This issue goes beyond mere disagreement. Tea Party congressional members are not interested in debating our disagreements and finding common-ground solutions to mutually agreed problems. They are only interested in winning. Everything. And they do not stop until they have caused damage when they do not win. That is my real world experience. Now, I should point out that I have many conservative friends (some very powerful), and I have some conservative family members. We state our cases, disagree, and then have a cocktail. Or, in some cases, we like each other so much but disagree so much that we just don’t discuss political issues. The personal outweighs the political. A couple are even Tea Party supporters, yet they do not think what is happening now is productive or good for the nation.

      Oh, and by the way, I do like your own blog site. We have a different take on the world, but I can see that you are thoughtful and interested in the same topics as myself. I will watch your site with interest.
