Great line in the editorial of the Idaho Statesmen:

“Witnessing the Republicans and the Democrats bicker over the U.S. Debt is like watching two drunks argue over a bar bill aboard the Titanic.”

Well, watching what is going on with the Tea Party and the "Wall Street Day of rage", I would say some are looking at the big picture and some are only looking at one side of the ledger.

The Tea Party is saying, "no more bailouts for the too big to fails", "no excessive spending and deficits", "stick to the constitution" and "if you fail at this within the first term, we will vote you out"

the Wall Street Protesters are blaming this only on the "too big to fails/banks" and putting no onus on the government, while looking to one of the culprits in this mess to solve the problem by giving them even more power.


One way will allow for more regulatory capture and crony capitalism and the other will send a message to "shape up or ship out"

Not saying the Republicans have not been part of the problem in the past, but at this point, Democrats do not look to be part of the solution.

the word "NO" needs to be spoken and acted upon, at this point, to right the ship.


edited: Conservatism is needed to "right the ship", nothing wrong with a "conservative democrat", if you can find one, but the shift towards progressivism that the party has taken over the last decade will make that a hard to find.

sure do not need another liberal Republican, like Bush, that's for sure.
