GOP Is In Power, And Out Of Excuses

Well, the GOP did it. They took both houses of Congress and now have leverage with the budget. Strap yourself in, it's about to get fucked up in this country. Mitch McConnell is now the Senate Majority leader. This would be great for him if it weren't for Ted Cruz, who is slated to fuck up Mitch McConnell's program by way of continuing to attempt to repeal Obamacare, and who has already threatened another government shutdown now that the GOP control the purse strings. Yeah, it's about to get ugly.

And Obama would be wise to allow it to happen.

The GOP for the last decade or so, have been anything but helpful to the USA. They've pissed away the massive surplus of the Clinton days, and gave it to the banks. The Bush Doctrine created an endless war with an ideology (Islamic terrorism) which sought to pad the pockets of companies like Abrams, Northrup-Grumman, Halliburton and of course the renamed Blackwater. The middle class was gutted and has all but evaporated.

And then Obama got elected, and McConnell told his party NEVER to cooperate with him. Then they accuse Obama of being a tyrant when his only power is executive action.

Well, Obama, I say this. Don't negotiate with terrorists, and the GOP are terrorists. If you give them an inch, they'll take a mile.

The GOP has been purchased by powerful special interests, namely the Koch Brothers, Rupert Murdoch, and the far Christian Right (megachurches). You can't deal with people who have been bought. They're not out there to 'do the right thing' and support American values. They exist as corporate shills to represent the interests of big money. Good luck getting anything out of the GOP that isn't tied to expanding energy production (at the extreme expense of citizens and the environment), attempting to repeal Obamacare (ONLY because a Democrat passed it... the law works, it was their idea in the first place, and a HUGE boon to the insurance industry... which does drive down costs), and more probably pressure to get into another fucking endless war with Syria or Iran.

Obama would do well to do what he has been. Allow the GOP to shut down government to spite him. Allow the GOP to continue to attempt in futility to repeal Obamacare. Allow the GOP to attempt to start more wars (and veto). Troll the fuckin shit out of them. Make them lose their goddamned minds, and they will slip up. You'll see the racism, misogyny, hate, and the moronic ideas flow. They will expose themselves for what they are, and try to paint he roses red, but you know, in the end, it's up to the American people to pay attention. If they don't none of that will matter.

The GOP will attempt to do one thing and one thing only. Sabotage the office of the President, as they have done from day one. They will do everything in their power to ruin this country, and then blame Obama for it. That is actually their stated strategy. All while they de-fund the EPA, and foul our waters, expand oil and gas, loosen restrictions on banking in order to let the Wall St parties go crazy, and probably keep attacking Roe v Wade, continuing the war on women.

Get ready for a shit show. The districts have been hopelessly gerrymandered, and the GOP is doing all it can to rig our democracy int heir favor. They have to win by cheating.

The GOP would be wise to send bills to the president's desk with no bullshit. No bill riders, no more attempts to repeal a working and well-liked law. But you know, one thing the GOP is not is wise. It's ruthless, and organized, but not wise at all. Welcome to the Idiocracy.
