The Horrors of Democracy
I'm going to try to tie what the Republicans are trying to do in Washington to my art and my life, so bear with me: My comic books cover some personally horrific episodes in my life, so it's weird that nowadays I am relatively stable, but that Tea-Party Republicans are willing to flush the country down the toilet because of Obamacare. I read a couple of paragraphs of the Paul Krugman column where they might not just bring on a partial government shutdown, but they also might cause the US to default on it's debt if they don't allow the debt ceiling to rise.
Paul Krugman says that even rock-solid short-term treasury notes will tank if that happens, which would plunge the world into another recession. I don't know how that will affect the income of my family, but I imagine there will be another pinch. I can't help but think about how my immediate family rallied around me in my periods of personal crisis all those years ago. The only thing the country can really do about these guys is vote them out when the time comes.
I hope that Obama and the Dems don't cave to these guys. I think if things really go bad, the Tea-Party Republicans will get 100% of the blame, and their constituents can decide what to do with them in due ti
