The Republicans position on raising the debt ceiling is not patriotism; it is Congressional Terrorism upon the American people!

It is the contention of many legal scholars and former Presidents that President Obama can invoke Section 4 of the 14th Amendment to raise the debt ceiling.

 

Section 4. [The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.]

Our present precarious predicament is self evident that extremism, fascism, racism and any and all nexus’ whether it is to the right or the left or in between, it is a profound recipe for disaster. The same people that ran up the debt and spiral it out of control from 2001 thru January 20, 2009, they are the same people that are shamelessly using Political Theatre in the worst form of hypocrisy, to cover their duplicity. Their nestled words do not provide cover for them, “because people often doubt what you say, but they always believe what you do!”

On one hand The Republicans and The Tea Party (One and the same) are telling the American people and the world that they are being responsible in their opposition to raise the debt ceiling, unless and until President Obama agrees, to “cut four trillion dollars from domestic spending.” The President has agreed to use means testing to cut waste from our ballooning budget, to prevent throwing the American Children, the Elderly, andAmerica’s most Vulnerable under the bus. In addition, the President is insisting and rightly so, that there has to be some increase in Taxes for the 2% of America’s wealthiest and big business, for which said pernicious tax cuts, is in part responsible for the Federal Imbalanced Budget.

The neurotic extremists are absolutely, positively, unequivocally, “hell-bent,” on sacrificing our entire country – “just to protect the wealthiest!” This is by no means Patriotism – this is Congressional Terrorism!
