The GOP is worse than useless

And I have likely voted in my last federal election, because it’s apparent Washington D.C. Mordor is going to do whatever the powers that be want, even after a clear signal of dissatisfaction from the electorate:

By cutting a deal with Senate Democrats to fund almost all of the government through the end of fiscal 2015, the House Republican leadership has taken away from the incoming Republican majorities in both houses of Congress any control over spending in those parts of the government through Sept. 30–and also any leverage that the Republican Congress could have derived from its power of the purse over these parts of the government to force the administration to alter its policies.

By cutting a deal to fund the Department of Homeland Security through Feb. 27, the House Republican leadership has given President Obama more than two and a half months to move forward with his unilateral amnesty of illegal aliens. During that time, Obama will be able to give illegal aliens visas and Social Security Numbers.

If the tables were turned, and the Democrats assuming control of both houses, you’d hear loud screams about how it’s “against the will of the people” to pass spending for all of the next fiscal year via the lame duck Congress.  But the GOP elders don’t have the backbone–or, more importantly, the desire–to demand a short-term funding appropriation that then puts the bulk of the year in the hands of the new incoming majority.

And that’s because they don’t plan to change a darn thing anyway.  Obamacare, de facto amnesty– it’s all funded.  And with full GOP complicity.

Cowards.  Traitors.  Unprincipled statists unworthy of leading a free people.

The question is, where is the clamor of protest from the free people?  Are there any left in America?  Or have we finally accepted the conditioning that we get to throw a temper tantrum at the polling place once every two years, then have to just accept whatever is done in between?

    Not cowards and not traitors. Just people who want to be reelected. The one time (in the 90s) the GOP actually eliminated budget deficits the “free people” rewarded it by restoring Democratic control of the House. The GOP learned its lesson – “talk the talk” but never, under any circumstances, “walk the walk”.

    You may not like it, but the “free people” are worthy only of “unprincipled statists”.
