Fine look like whiny children GOP. If you think the American people are seriously going to like this approach then you're going to be in for a nasty surprise.

The local and state elections are incredibly important. The GOP in it's present form is a Cult. Tell me again how they are going to help America.

I've essentially said that to the few Republicans who canvas door-to-door here. I'm polite about it, but I tell them that their party at the national level is batshit insane. The local GOP generally doesn't reflect that, but I say to them I can't support a party that is pushing such extreme views.

Exactly. When you wait to hear sanity from any quarter after an outrageous mind numbing assault on your senses remark, all you get is *crickets*. Had my fill of it. I want them beat. Beat bad.

Explain to me again how vowing to make government even more dysfunctional isn’t treason?

Because legally it is only "Treason" if you work against the interests of this country at the behest of a foreign power, or provide "aid and comfort" to someone working for a foreign power.

The correct word for what they are doing is actually Sedition. :p

You're lucky. The local GOP here IS batshit insane, which puts it at the cutting edge of the "New Republican Party." Some of the locals are positively giddy over their unaccustomed role as a trend-setter.

It's my understanding that Judge Tom Head was actually surprised at the response to his claims about Obama bringing in UN troops to control Lubbock, then amazed that it became a tumultuous international uproar. The reason is fairly simply: Tom is not stupid but his political life has largely been lived in the bubble of the Lubbock County GOP. Within the local party, these Birch influences are more or less standard. They understand that these ideas are in dispute, but regard them as legitimate issues on the national stage.
