Tell The GOP We Want Reform

Posted on | March 7, 2013 | 22 Comments

What I said here at Boehner’s little site:

I blame the input more than the output.
Instead of a proper economy, with taxation funding an enumerated set of federal services, things run backward now.
“Zimbabwe” Ben Bernanke prints the money, DC hands it out as increased spending, and everyone pretends this is sustainable.
You can bleat on about managing the spending, but those with a grasp of human nature know that you will always find some “emergency” to justify the next spree.
“A mind is a terrible thing,” and rationalizations are not reform.
Repent, reform, restore.

    Just throw them out. The party insists on acting like a corpse, treat it as one.

    Tell who, exactly, and what? Republicans are as approachable, now, as Democrats. Writing letters and my one vote have zero (or I should say Zero) effect. Keep digging at it though. I’m sure they WANT to listen to you (us). For my part I’m saving my stamps.

    You are all just ridiculous. Now I just hope BHO calls me up after our dinner date last night. I think it really went well. He does not seem happy with that wife of his. I wonder if he will call…

    Silence = Death. Did you learn nothing from the Jews of the Third Reich?

    I’m going to speak with my donations to ANYONE who primaries Graham and McCain. It’s the only language these self-appointed mandarins hear.

    Don’t give it up until BHO puts a ring on your finger.

    I’m sure he’ll call you, sweetie. After all, that pack of smokes you shared in the Rose Garden after dinner while fretting over everyone standing with Rand practically sealed the deal. Michelle frowns over that.

    As it should be. But remaining silent is just slow suicide!

    What are you, 5? They actively voted for socialism. They weren’t quiet. Einstein was a lead socialist agitator, who then fled when it came right down to the dirty work of what he had helped create! Gah! Talking is meaningless, at this point. You can fight or get out. I will be leaving as soon as health allows. Can’t fight for people who want it. I would die with people, just not for them.

    You are a deluded jack-wagon. Go die alone in a corner someplace far away. If you are not willing to die for your Republic, die alone you asshat.

    Also, you are an anti-Semite as well. Turd-burglar too, methinks! Wait for US to pay to get you healthy so you can leave and evade responsibility? You are a thorough twat-waffle sir!

    Even Boehner’s message is offensive. It still assumes the sequester is a bad thing. It should only be the start. Now we need sequester x 10 and we can stop running up the deficit. We are a resilient, innovative country, we can take it.

    If you think you have a chance, go for it. You don’t, you don’t have the backbone for it, nor do your compatriots, or we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in. Tall big all day, then… just sit there, as usual.

    I’m not the one who is deluded. Good luck, by the way. Not that it will help you much.

    Heh. I’m already dead and still trying to get my Republic out of the mess it’s in. I served in the Navy in WWII, what, other than whine, take and be anti-Semitic, have you done fool?

    You helped get it in the mess it’s in. Several of the FedGov programs that haunt us now, you created.

    You also might want to explain just how JAMed is being anti-Semitic. Of course, you didn’t much like Jews yourself as you so eloquently explained in one of those WH recordings. Given the behavior of people like Little Chucky Shumer, it’s hard not to dislike some of those from the Synagogue of Satan.

    I am paying for my mistakes in Purgatory. Part of my 2016 platform is to undo my errors.
