Theamerican Civil War: Round 2?

Postby CrustyMTB on Sat 5/Oct/13 9:31pm

Slavery or (semi)universal healthcare? Either way the unhinged tea party seems to be dragging the republicans to a place where armed conflict becomes a logical next step. Are they really that deluded? Your thoughts viewers.

The further right you go in the US, the further from reality. Fortunately, most people in the US are a lot more moderate in general. (hence why obama got voted in twice.)
I think the republicans will have to move back towards the centre if they ever want to get back into office. There are a lot of good things about US conservatism (smaller government, more personal responsibility etc.) Unfortunately it gets lost in amongst the heavily christian, anti science, anti women, pro-war, pro-rich rhetoric.

American left is equivalent to the rest of the West's right anyway. Obama's still a bible thumping warmonger who wants people to pay for private health insurance... Just he's a little less of all those things than the republicans.

Except perhaps the warmonger bit. Dude's got drones down, bitches.

That's an enjoyable thought.

Is there a drone computer game yet?

This is ridiculous enough that the republicans might kick the bigger idiots out.
That will pull enough lefty votes to get Caribou Barbie elected in 2016 :crazy:

:p I like that.

That Sarah Palin exists shows how fucking insane they are, that she was a candidate for VP shows how dumb they are.

...but they ARE those things! That's what's so stupid! If they were genuinely interested in developing business in America they'd start using Science to kickstart new business. Instead they give their money to people who preach things like creationism!

FFS! People get so scared of Iran getting the bomb, I'm more worried about the new breed of Republican dip-shits getting the keys!

'Mericans vote down party lines moreso than anyone else. Dickish behaviour likely gets the party punished, not necessarily the individual. So I anticipate that the Republican congresspersons are gonna get reamed hard next election. Happened in the 90s when they did similar during Clinton. Which - factoid - apparently lead to Clinton reaming Monica Lewinski hard whilst the White House was understaffed and being propped up with interns.

This has a similar principle of a Union going on strike, its members voted them in on the ideals that they would do X-Y-Z and as they weren't able to do that 2 years ago when they were asked and none of the issues are against the law.
The only option is to go on strike. Not having a Panda cam or a NASA website isn't hurting the party, they want the government to fail and they still see the instigators of the hurt as being the others not them, so in their eyes - let them eat cake.

The bigger problem and something that history shows is that this isn't going to end well. Is when one side sees disruption as a solution especially when they are dealing with an unpleasent but essential compromise such as the debt crisis.

The tea party won't care that the rest of the world is laughing/going wtf because they barely believe that the rest of the world exists. US conservatives are the socially retarded kid at school that thinks he's ok and everytime he opens his mouth the whole room cringes anticipating what new heights of idiocy are about to be scaled.
