The Republicans voiced their typical outrage, not very convincing with the exception of the committed conservatives, and a tradition since the Founders has been destroyed. This means that Obama can railroad through appointments of extreme progressive ilk and the Republicans will be unable to slow them down. Not only that, but the steps being proposed to stack appellate courts with less than well qualified jurists will be on a major upswing.
The Democrats argued that the Republicans "threatened" to do the same thing when they had the majority and used the same logic or lack thereof. And there is truth to that but there is one huge difference. They didn't follow through, they relented. But now that the Dems have invoked open warfare in what used to be the "Great Debating Body", all bets for more civility and fairplay are off.
King Barack, acting more and more like a dictator of the Chavez variety in the White House, now has his "little" Dictator in the Senate. The only body with any hope for maintaining America as we know it is the House, and with John Boehner, a very weak and easily swayed Speaker, that future doesn't look very good.
America, it is very important that true conservatives be elected next year to turn the tide in the Senate. They must be dedicated to the Constitution and freedom. RINOs and Progressives will not do, for electing the same people again will only compound this horrible result and our free society can't stand any more of that. Those of you in red states with Democratic Senators, particularly take note. There is not a red state progressive Senator who supports the view of the majority of the state's people. Examples abound such as Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Mark Begich of Alaska and Kay Hagan of North Carolina. There are many others. Act accordingly and throw them out, but do so with a true Conservative opponent, not a RINO hiding under cover.
It's also time to replace all of the leadership of the Senate Republican minority with fighters, men and women who will stand up to the progressive onslaught, not make statements of outrage while going along for the ride. No one is more representative of this than Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Senate Minority Leader, who must be replaced by a leader who represents the will of the people, not K-Street. There are several others in leadership of a similar mind like John Cornyn of Texas.
Get ready for the 2014 elections, voice your opinion and support Conservatives, true conservative candidates. Study their records, see what they have and have not done, and vote for those who support American values. Otherwise the "Land of the Free" will truly become the future "Home of the Slaves".
Think about it, pray about it, and act. It's our responsibility and it's our right. Have a wonderful day and God bless America and all that she stands for. She is not the government, she is her people. Always remember that.
