The Republican Party is at a crossroads in its long history in the U.S. From a rather liberal political party of the 19th Century, through its Progressive Era of the early 20th Century, to the voice of free enterprise of the latter 20th Century, this glorious political party is now faced with a very vocal and pushy group of right-wingers and tea partiers that are hell-bent on getting their way even if it means destroying the U.S. This strange right-wing collection of terrorists and anti-intellectuals think nothing of shutting down the government, no matter the consequences. Even their own party "regulars" have been warning them of the dangers of their actions.
In a couple more months we shall be tortured again with the same right-wing scam, lies, deceptions, greed, distortions, hostage-taking, selfishness, and repeated hurt to the American economy and future. All that so that the likes of the Koch Brothers, Senator Cruz, the tea party, and the military-industrial complex can have their own way. We have always had some right-wing extremes in the United States, but the current group has access to more media and more penetration into the minds of Americans. They are not only dangerous, they are wrong. These greed-merchants do not take any prisoners.
I'm writing to take issue with members of the U.S. House and Senate. Yes, I know, everybody is sick and tired of their horrid performance. However what is truly frightening is all the damage being done by these legislative "leaders" because they simply do not know the law, and they are oblivious to what the result is of their shutdown actions.
