Just look at the stock market today: http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2013/09/29/wall-street-uneasy-in-face-of-government-shutdown/?_r=0 Investors assume that the crazies will shut down the government and default on the spending that they themselves voted for. So once again, a fragile US economy  (and that of the entire planet) will take a big hit. And for no good reason.

That is how destructive Congressional “Republicans” have become –  the whole world knows that they will destroy the economy just to make sure they don’t face a primary challenge next year. Global depression or recession? They do  not care. So long as they can keep getting re-elected and living large on our dime, they’ll wreck the planet.

Think about this next time you vote.
