I think I figured out the single most important reason the GOP is spiraling out of control: They oppose everything they believe in.
- Creating laws to prevent same sex couples from getting married and having families is antithetical to the ideas of limited government and personal freedom.
- Creating laws to make it harder to vote is antithetical to the idea of limited government and to the Constitution so many legislators now carry in their coat pockets.
- Voting 52 times to block so many Americans from being able to buy private health insurance or gain coverage through Medicaid is antithetical to the Conservative idea that it’s cheaper to insure the poor than it is to pay their emergency room bills.
- All of the above is antithetical to the idea of fiscal conservatism. Seriously, how much of our federal and state taxes are being flushed down legislative toilets to the benefit of no one? I seriously think the budget deficit could be cut in half if congress would just cut the bullshit.
Just my $.02 for the day.
