Sweeping through the news today, I see Republican after Republican threatening complete blockades and stonewalls, shutting down the government if they don’t get their way. Tim Walberg, for example. Or Mitch McConnell making it clear that they’ll be targeting health care.
You can say they’re crazy, they’re radical, they’re counterproductive, but what you can’t deny is their fire.
As soon as Democrats came into office they talked about coming together, working together, not playing partisan politics, etc. Yet it was a one-sided decision, and as a result bill after bill after bill was compromised and watered down. That led to voter disenfranchisement and apathy. Republicans? They’re talking about storming the gates even before they’ve taken office.
I’ll tell ya, I really hope someday Democrats at least get a little of that passion.
