    However, if you really want to have fun, just ask, "Sure, you can say/do that, but is/was it the right thing to do?"

    :eek:

    In the past I have enjoyed talking politics with my peers. It was nearly always a challenging debate that very seldom ended with any hurt feelings or by calling someone a Nazi. But in this super charged partisan environment talking about politics has become a hazardous activity.
    I have never seen such a polarized political system as we have right now.
    I am nostalgic for the Eisenhower era, the dollar was worth something, the economy was at it's strongest and the growth of our infrastructure provided good family wage jobs. Ah the good OLD days.

    Yep, The racist and Nazi card is are always the first two cards on the top of the deck to be played.

    This false crisis is what it is -"manufactured" Pure political posturing in a one party republic.

    People are manipulated and polarized the politicians are not.
    I really feel sorry for the younger generations.

    They have a pill for that.

    Or get a stick and some twine, that'll do in a pinch.

    Thank you GOP! I got a lot of fence post holes dug, some fly lines and rods tested, and some cutthroat fished for and caught, so the time off wasn't wasted. Unfortunately the work I get paid for that was late due to the lawyer is now 2 weeks later.

    It's hard to blame this on the GOP in its entirety. They are having a serious internal struggle of the establishment GOP vs. the tea party insurgents, and part of it played out in a way that unnecessarily damaged the country's economy and made us look weak internationally. Hopefully they'll get their internal struggle sorted out in less damaging ways going forward.

    Actually I hope they don't, I would love to see the gop falter, especially the tea party. I want them (Cruz, Rand, Cantor, etc. to fail and be voted out on their next elections.

    It is becoming more difficult to differentiate - GOP/TP
    I believe the TP is really becoming a burden on the GOP and the latest was just results.
    Sweet huh?

    Time for a viable third party made up of moderate Elephants and Donkeys.

    Honestly Gene I believe term limits would solve a lot of problems. Look how many 'services' could become obsolete...
    lobbyists
    PACS
    Supreme Court
    The influence would change dramatically I think

    Jamie - In many House districs, gerrymandering has ensured that races won't be close. There are way too many "safe" GOP and democrat districts. So the fight is at the primary level, where mostly the highly motivated partisans (who tend to be extremists) vote. Some states out east even have highly restrictive rules about who can even vote in a primary, like having to be a registered party member. That filters out a lot of the moderate voters, and thus we get these wild-eyed candidates who are nearly assured of winning.

    GAT - Great idea. Hard to make that happen given the current election system: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/24/opinion/24friedman.html?_r=2&
