‘My way or the highway’ attitude is killing GOP — or maybe it’s rabies

‘My way or the highway’ attitudes are killing GOP | ABQJournal Online

Today (Tuesday, Oct. 1), my wife and I went to the Sandoval County Bureau of Elections office to change our voter registration affiliation from independent — our status since we first became eligible to vote more than a half-century ago — to Democrat.

We did so because the Republican Party has ceded all power to the most radical element within its ranks — a noisy, anarchic clique of political yahoos whose “my way or the highway” attitudes have reduced Congress to a state of impotency, as well as making considerable mischief in state and local governments. (Rio Rancho is a prime example of the latter.)

Hence, our new political affiliation. We are determined to be part of the effort to save the U.S. from feckless, irresponsible zealotry. Unless a viable alternative one day arises, we will maintain that affiliation, as we await the day when Republicans complete their party’s self-destruction.

It cannot come soon enough. It’s a sad end for a once-grand old party, but we see no hope for a turnabout.

Fanatics should be checked for rabies | ABQJournal Online

Unbelievable. A small cabal has shut down the most powerful country in the world.

A handful of fanatics has forced a vote 44 times, spending about 100 million dollars to do so, to repeal a law that will save the lives of tens of thousands of Americans suffering from easily treated medical issues.

Has anyone checked these yoyos for rabies?
