The national Republican Party is currently in the midst of a slow-motion train wreck. Their presidential primary has amply demonstrated their Base’s profound disaffection. You can call it anger, you can call it delusion – you can call it a tuna fish sandwich. But when 70+% of your voters don’t like anyone having anything to do with anything you’ve been doing – you absolutely call it a problem.
And when it’s this big, it’s a problem for the Party – not their voters. There’s an old banking joke: If someone owes the bank $10,000 – that someone has a problem. But if someone owes the bank $10 million – the bank has a problem. 70+% is the bank having a problem.
The Party remains somewhere in Egypt – along the banks of Denial. It likes to dismiss these people with incredibly flattering terms like “Crazies.” And elected officials these people actually like with terms of endearment like “Jackass.” Because you always go far when insulting the majority of your voters.
Speaker John Boehner is turning in his gavel and leaving Congress – apparently because everyone thinks he’s done a phenomenal job. And on his way out the door he is denouncing his voters for having “unrealistic expectations.” He would know – they have them in large part because his Party and their campaign minions set them every election cycle when they’re lying to get votes.
The EPA is a political machine for the dems as it is currently structured. It needs to be reorganized based on science and fact, not political agenda, and reduced in power and influence. Unproven science re. global warming (not) and bloated misapplication of conservation and environmental rules and regs. is costing the US BILLIONS of dollars in wasted energy resources, reduced productivity and delay of civil works project implementation. We all want to protect the environment but when it takes 10 to 20 years of a "paper chase" to permit major transportation or civil works projects, something is very very wrong with the system. We have obstructionists and anti-progress activists running the EPA and this must change. Millions of jobs are being killed because of their obstructions. Highways can't be widened because of unrealistic environmental constraints so we sit in traffic, going nowwhere fast, and spewing pollution into the air. What sence does this make? I am a civil engineer and understand the issues, believe me. Reform is needed now.
Congress should Impeach every Federal Head of All the Federal Agencies to name a few to start with EPA,TSA,DHS,DEA,FBI,IRS, ATF, VA, SSI, NSA, CIA ,FCC, Dept.ED and the list goes on
Why has our lame stream media quickly forgotten the yellow/orange poison river, caused by the epa contractor, that poisoned the water of the southwest United States ? .Did the pollution and poison just disappear ?
If we change the word impeach to HANG, them I am in total agreement.
Heck get rid of the EPA totally - it's an unlawful entity to begin with. Get rid of ALL the DC Federal entities ! NONE of them are Constitutional and they only exist to protect and enforce DC "laws" on the public. NONE of them are for the people's benefit.
