If only people would stop lying about the Tea Party she is correct.

"But it is also true that the brilliant architects of the U.S. Constitution provided many checks and balances and a multitude of channels through which the will of the people may, at all times, be expressed.

The move by the Republican-controlled House to pass a bill to authorize spending for the federal government, but to withhold spending authorization for the health care law, is totally legitimate, appropriate and constitutional."

I honestly somewhat agree with this, but at the same time, that doesn't necessarily make it a good move. Republicans are still taking the majority of the flack for the government shutdown. So while this statement may be right, and the checks and balances of our government give them the ability to do this, it doesn't always make it a good idea for the long term stability of the party. A lot of people do not approve of using this method to negotiate, and that may possibly be reflected in upcoming elections.

If a person is doing the right thing they should be willing to shoulder the flak.

I can respect that stance as long as they are prepared to accept what could be the consequences of their stand against the ACA.

Throughout history leaders have led - not followed - and sometimes their leading has not initially been the politically popular thing to do (at the time).... If everyone in DC did what was right instead of just bought them votes we would all be better off.  This is one reason I personally support the fair tax and a return to smaller, centralized government.

The interesting thing is they may need to simply stand back and let happen what is happening. People are getting a big reality check of what happens when you cede more and more to the government. It doesn't work and it costs far more than the private market can deliver it for. I've been biting my tongue to not go to every lib I know and gloat that I told them so. Instead, I'm just sitting back and watching their heads explode.

This is a  non sequitur, L_S: I honestly somewhat agree with this, but at the same time, that doesn't necessarily make it a good move.

Star was talking about the Constitutionality of what the House has done, not whether it was "a good move" (though I assume she does think so). So you either agree it is Constitutional or you don't, not "somewhat agree", as your opinion of its wisdom is irrelevant to that point.

If voters were turned off by divisive or hardball politics, OPapaDoc would not be POTUS.
