Can The Right Vote For Compromise In Washington on Debt Limit?

August 1, 2011

The creation of a needless crisis resulted in conservatives nearly bringing our nation to defaulting on the good faith and credit that this nation has long been known for.  (What a dreadful thing to take delight in.)

We have witnessed a number of dramatic series of events over the past months, and more will follow as the year progresses.  The events from Sunday in the form of the compromise reached in Washington promises that to be the case.

First though the Republicans in Congress who brought us all to the edge of the cliff  need to answer a big question.

Will they step up and pass what was hammered out by the leaders in Congress in the form of a compromise on the debt limit?

I think that the GOP should have to carry the weight of this vote, and make the deal pass.  Not to ‘man up’ only paints the Tea Party Terrorists in the shade we all know them to be.

The deal will likely be rejected by the most liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans. Democrats are upset because the spending cuts will hit social programs and aren’t accompanied by tax increases. Some Republicans feel that the cuts didn’t go deep enough. A key question for Mr. Boehner is whether he can persuade more than half of the 240 House Republicans to approve the deal, since failure to do so would raise questions about how much support he has from his caucus.

“I know this agreement won’t make every Republican happy. It certainly won’t make every Democrat happy either,” Mr. Reid said. But, he added, “the American people demanded compromise, and today they got it.”

    Should anyone who donated money to the Tea Party be jailed? Or perhaps their leaders hunted down and assassinated? After all, that is what we do with actual terrorists…

    Please step back, take a deep breath, and look at where your words will take us….

    When I define a terrorist it is summed up as a person or group who uses terrorism in the pursuit of political aims.

    That is exactly what the Tea Party has done.

    They took our nation’s good faith and credit and used it as a tool to foster and blackmail to gain a political gain. They created a crisis. They ginned up an issue.

    If a group from the Mideast had used some means to do the same to the credit worthiness of this nation we all would call that an act of terrorism.

    This is no different.

    To create a disruption and a national scare that need not have happened is an act of terrorism.

    I repeat, they are Tea Party Terrorists.

    This attempt to paint the Tea Party as a group of “terrorist” reminds me how I was called that same exact name because I was in the streets protesting the changes to Collective Bargaining.

    You’re better than that, aren’t you?
