Anyone who follows my ramblings knows that I have no love for Obama anymore. (He’s probably the best Republican president since Reagan – but I digress.)
But if the Republicans think that I will EVER vote for them after this…
It’s too bad really. You could have come out pro-liberty, restored habeas corpus, put an end to the fiscally disastrous drug war, and funded an educational system that would fuel another 100 years of American leadership.
You could have rebuilt the tax code.
You could have reinvented America based on the simple principle that the cheapest and fastest path to a measurably better society tomorrow vs yesterday will always be the best plan.
You could have kicked a few “too big to fail” systems in the balls (because anything too big to fail will fail disastrously big) and replaced it with lots of things “small enough to not destroy everything”, all of them handy and independent and, well, useful.
You could have built a military capable of fighting the next war rather than the last one.
You could have made Obama look like an appeasing, glad-handing, un-principled ass.
You do this to my country: you shut it down. YOU SHUT DOWN MY ENTIRE FUCKING COUNTRY!
And why? To end-run the entire democratic process, to destroy a LAW you are SWORN TO UPHOLD. Right now, I don’t think I will ever forgive you.
You could have won me over. It’s actually possible.
But now? Nope. You have shown yourselves to be irresponsible beyond reason. I now trust kindergartners more than you.
