No, I'm not suggesting revolution and dismantling our government. It's painfully obvious that the
current asshats in congress don't really give two shits about the American people. The Republicans are willing to furlough their constituents all to stop Obamacare, even knowing that the Democrats will never back down from it.
So what am I advocating? Let's furlough our current members of congress. How do we do that? The old fashioned way, of course: don't vote for them.
Every asshole Republican that voted in favor of putting the Obamacare defund rider onto the budget bill should be voted out in 2014. Every Democrat that refused to postpone the implementation of Obamacare should be voted out in 2014.
"But Jack, it wasn't the Democrats' fault! It was the Republicans!" No, hypothetical-nay-sayer, they are all to blame. There are too few people in congress anymore that are willing to compromise, and I, for one, am sick and tired of the brinkmanship.
If the Republicans actually gave a shit about the American people, they never would have put the Obamacare rider on the funding bill. Newsflash: they don't give a shit, because they're not directly affected by the furloughs. If the Democrats truly gave a shit about the American people, they would have signed the bill and fought the Obamacare battle another day.
But neither party is interested in anything that closely resembles responsible governance. Every single American citizen who votes for an establishment party member in 2014 only has themselves to blame.
If you want real change, it's time to start voting third party or independent. I know it might be scary, but mark my words: as long as Congress is comprised of nearly all Democrats and Republicans, nothing will change. Just as I predicted in 2008, Obama has not and will not effect any change in DC. All he has managed to do is get a healthcare bill passed that will make my premiums go up. That's not rhetoric, that's just fact.
So congratulations Democrats: you still suck. Congratulations Republicans: you're still a bunch of assholes.
Vote third party in 2014 or you're just asking for more bullshit.
