Republican Logic

Where’s Spock when you need him? He could have pieced this together in 3.61 seconds.

The Republican leaders now have to implement their own false narrative -- that government doesn’t work. They have to make that true regardless of facts. It’s their promise -- their mantra -- their rationale for the modern-day Republican Party. It is their everything.

Government is not the solution to our problems; government is the problem. -- Ronald Reagan

As the majority party in the House now, the Republicans have to govern. Except they can’t. Their ideology won’t allow it. Government doesn’t work. It can’t. Government is the problem, not the solution. The Republican Party has adopted an election-winning strategy (let’s all hate the government) that leads to it’s logical conclusion -- their own failure as the government.

Unfortunately, they’ll take America down along with their Party. Again.

If you entered a marriage thinking "marriage doesn't work", what do you think the chances are of being in a successful or happy marriage?
I am not going to vote for anybody to be an elected official in charge of government whose attitude is "government doesn't work". For a country supposedly brimming with natural optimism, that is an incredibly, negatively fucked-up worldview.
