Friends, if this is the best that the Republicans can come up with then they clearly deserve a new name for their political group: The Spelunker Party. This makes it clear that once again they have caved and given the Democrats just what they wanted. No fight, no strength, no nothing but a lot of useless words.
Every time America begins to run out of time on a financial issue, a regular problem which is caused by the unwillingness to address real issues, Congress, be it either party, just kicks the can down the road for ten years or so. They've been doing it for a long time and they just have no stomach for standing on principle. And they use the excuse that it's because they don't have sufficient political power in D.C. but they never take the time to think about the fact that they lack sufficient power because no one trusts them to do what needs to be done. I truly believe Americans want something other than what the Democrats have to offer but the Republicans just can't clearly come up with a game plan for anything other than just continuing to go along for the ride.
America needs some bold leadership right now. She doesn't need anymore politicians who spend the majority of their efforts selling their services to the highest bidder. Until we find people who put the good of the country first we will never fix things, and as long as we keep reelecting those who are fixtures in the cesspool that is Washington that will never happen.
Get involved, study the issues and the impending disaster that is America today, don't accept platitudes but demand answers and then vote only for those who put the people of America first. We need fresh blood and fresh ideas, not a repeat of the New Deal and the Great Society. We certainly don't need any more "Yes, we can" where it turns out that the "we" was really an "I" spoken from one man's lips. The only way our society will return to its former greatness will be by returning to the principles of our Founders and of our God. Let's turn the Spelunker Party into the Sunshine Party with brightness and openness about what government does. Once honesty and integrity return, the ray of light will allow us to see what needs to be done.
We're only as great and as good a nation as we decide for it to be, my friends. Bring God into your heart and ask for His help as you decide what needs to be done. If all of us will do that, there isn't an ideologue or true believer who can hold us down. Let's roll.
