Don't Count on GOP to "Come to Their Senses" on the Debt Ceiling - Page 4
All that being true, what possible reason would the GOP HAVE to AGREE to raise the debt ceiling if they don't get everything and give up nothing? What do THEY have to lose if they pull the trigger and blow our brains all over the wallpaper. Name a GOP lawmaker who couldn't live very comfortably on his or her savings and accumulated wealth.
So. The debt ceiling doesn't get raised. The world economy collapses. The hostages are all killed. The world economy comes crashing down around our ears. The GOP blames Obama for the catastrophe. The Mainstream Media, all owned by corporations, HEAPS the blame onto Obama. Those of us who still have electricity will be stupid enough to BELIEVE what the media is telling us. The GOP wins hugely in November 2012 and we all hail our new President Bachmann.
As America sinks into the tarpits of history, turning into a third world nation, as the corporations and industrialists get richer and fatter as the middle class vanishes completely, President Bachmann can pass all SORTS of nice little laws making it illegal to do things that might make the baby Jesus cry — like freedom of reproductive choice, equal rights to gays and Muslims and African-Americans...
This is what happens when you give terrorists what they want. They always want more. And they don't care who they kill.
