Taking Crazy to Its Illogical Conclusion

cruz asshole

Born and raised in Texas I’ve watched our politics devolve into a miasma that only gets worse over time.  The lunatic fringe that is the Tea Party in this state is essentially nothing more than a fringe group.  Like most people around the country however few people acknowledge being a part of the Tea Party and yet their extremist views seem to be everywhere.

People who call themselves conservatives seem to be attaching themselves to insane political and economic philosophies simply because they are under the illusion that even  bad Republicans are better than any qualified Democrat.  Score one for the linguistic engineers within the GOP that have convinced too many of our citizens that all Democrats are “socialists” and want to institute “death panels” through “socialized medicine” while generating more revenue for “welfare queens” by engineering a “death tax”.

It is perhaps the worst thing that can happen to a democracy when people don’t take the time to look beyond the veil of outrageous claims or who haven’t developed basic critical thinking skills.  Blind loyalty to a one-Party system replaces a democracy with an oligarchy.

Ted Cruz has led us to believe that we must abandon a ship that is in no danger of sinking but merely one that isn’t painted the right color.  Holding our economy hostage with government shutdowns and refusing to pay our bills are not sane solutions to our problem but simply taking crazy to its illogical conclusion.

    1. Moderates usually float over and vote Democratic some, at least until some sanity gets reestablished in the GOP. That may take a lot longer than some are willing to admit

  1. I’m beginning to believe we need either more or less political parties — two is not a good number for negotiation. With only one or no parties, we have to vote for the person, not their party. With more than two strong parties, we can have shifting alliances among them, forcing some negotiation. Actually, the Tea Party might be a third political party, but I think of it more like a political parasite!

    1. I’m afraid both the Democrats and the Republicans have created barriers that serve them almost exclusively Mike, making it very difficult for any 3rd Party to get established. That’s why the TeaParty works within the GOP and liberal groups will have to achieve their goals within the Democratic party.
