Former GOP Senator Bashes Party:“Most Americans Are Simply Ignoring Republicans — and They Should”

In a Monday morning op-ed published on TheHill.com , a former Republican senator had some harsh words for his own party based on the current wave of radicalism that seems to be taking over the GOP.

Judd Gregg, who’s a former senator from Rhode Island, had a detailed and very critical assessment targeted at his party and how they’ve let the fringe radicals take over the “mainstream” message of the GOP.

Gregg wrote:
“Most Americans these days are simply ignoring Republicans. And they should. The self-promotional babble of a few has become the mainstream of Republican political thought. It has marginalized the influence of the party to an appalling degree.”
But he didn’t stop with just that. He went into great detail when attacking the utter stupidity of any politician who thinks the vote to increase our debt ceiling should be used as some kind of political leverage:

“An approach to the debt ceiling that says one will not vote for its extension unless ObamaCare is defunded is the political equivalent of playing Russian roulette with all the chambers of the gun loaded. It is the ultimate no-win strategy.

You cannot in politics take a hostage you cannot shoot. That is what the debt ceiling is. At some point, the debt ceiling will have to be increased not because it is a good idea but because it is the only idea.

Defaulting on the nation’s obligations, which is the alternative to not increasing the debt ceiling, is not an option either substantively or politically.

A default would lead to some level of chaos in the debt markets, which would lead to a significant contraction in economic activity, which would lead to job losses, which would lead to higher spending by the federal government and lower tax revenues, which would lead to more debt.”

And everything he said is absolutely true. This Republican strategy makes absolutely no sense. How anyone takes these people seriously baffles me every single day. There’s a difference between an ideological difference on issues such as abortion or spending, and taking care of fiscal obligations. When you’re operating on some kind of “reality” that simply does not exist, as people like Senator Ted Cruz and other fringe radicals have been, how am I not supposed to consider you insane?

Like I’ve said before, they can shutdown our government and default on our debt, but you know what? Obamacare will still be the law of the land.
So in the end, what will they have accomplished besides hurting millions of Americans and crashing our economy? The answer is simple—absolutely nothing.

Well, maybe not “nothing.” Ted Cruz has done a masterful job at using his entire term as United States Senator as a taxpayer funded presidential campaign. Because that’s all this really is — Ted Cruz using his position in the Senate to get taxpayer-funded exposure for a 2016 presidential bid.

But it is refreshing to be reminded that not all Republicans are insane. Once upon a time, some Republicans actually made sense. It just seems like those days were very, very long ago.

You know, you are very much like someone else on this forum! You are right, when proven wrong, you won't listen to any sort of reason, it's got to be your way. I posted the scientific meaning of a theory, you said ‘oh no’ that doesn’t apply to politics, then I descried in a valid scientific way that political theory and scientific polling are done, then you changed to a third version, also incorrect; proven with the very link YOU provided? I don’t get it, what in the hell is wrong with you? At first you appear to possess some rationality, the more you go on the more that hypothesis is disproven. I was responding to a person attacking me with complete ignorance in the first place, who invited you into the conversation? Now be sure I am done with this bullshit, next you will likely try a Russian interpretation of theory anyway! You were bested, deal with it!

Cruz's speech long, but it's not a filibuster
Washington (CNN)– Whatever you want to call Ted Cruz's marathon speech on the Senate floor, it's not in and of itself a filibuster. While he's speaking for an unusually long time, he's not holding up any Senate business.
It is part of a filibuster by him and other Senate Republicans like Marco Rubio and Mike Lee who are stalling immediate Senate action on the House-passed plan to fund the government past September 30. They don't need to talk to do that, they just say they will and that requires the Senate to reach a 60-vote threshold to stop them.

Darth Vader, Sean Connery, Chinese gooseberries, and other highlights from Cruz's marathon speech
Washington (CNN)- As the sun came up over the U.S. Capitol Wednesday morning, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, entered his 16th hour of holding the Senate Floor.
Here are some of the highlights from the night. Be sure you don't skip the exchange between Cruz and fellow Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah around 3 a.m., where they ask each other some super tricky questions. Cruz also mentions his lifelong dream of being a Pirate at one point. Oh, and there was also the time Cruz loops Sean Connery and Teddy Roosevelt into the same analogy.

No, God doesn't ask for 10%. Churches do.

"Does God still require 10% of your money today?(remember tithing was not money, in fact it rarely was). The word “tithe” is used 13 times in the Bible. Not once do you see the word “money” used with it. The word “tithes” is used 21 times in the Bible. The word “money” is not mentioned. It has become this because of our system we use today, but this was not strictly so for Israel."

http://www.letusreason.org/doct54.htm

"I know the word "tithe" has "tenth" built into it, and so some Christians assume that every usage of the word "tithe" in Scripture is referring to "giving 10% of your gross income to the church." But I also know that "tithes" in the Old Testament did not refer to this at all;

They only "tithed" on food (livestock and crops); they had money (i.e. "income"), but the "tithes" did not apply to that
The food went to the Levites, Priests, and needy people - none of whom had land of their own by which they could feed themselves
"Tithes" were not required of everyone - only those who raised livestock or grew crops. For example, carpenters weren't required to tithe, nor were the Priests and needy people
Clearly these things have application today; I am not challenging the idea of providing for ministers and needy people with cheerfulness and generosity."

If God only asks for 10% of our income, why does Obama think he can demand 40%?

I jumped into the conversation because you were trying to belittle someone by incorrectly claiming their use of a word was wrong. That because of it that he/she, somehow were inferior to you.
That kind of arrogance only comes from posers. People pretending to have a high degree of intelligence and education, when in reality they likely will be taking your order at the local drive through.
As shown by all the definitions I posted, a theory, aside from its exact technical meanings, can and does mean opinion, speculation, conjecture, ect. ALL the things you told the person you blasted, it didn't mean.
In other words the poster used the word correctly.
I had to come from many different directions to get that simple notion though to you. That prove more difficult than I imagined.
Apparently dictionaries are too complex for you.
Now if it makes you feel better, you win ;-)

Dude, the taxable rate for this year for a single filer is 39.6 percent for income over $400,000 - it is the same rate for a joint filing over $450,000. Not sure what your laughing about.
