I’ve been a Republican all of my life.  While still registered as such, it is clear I have ceased to belong in the party.  Once a party I respected deeply for it’s common sense on economic, energy, labor, foreign policy and national defense issues, it is now the party of make believe, especially when it comes to tax and economic issues.  The “compromise” it forced over the weekend was no compromise, it was “our way or we destroy the economy”.  Unfortunately, it looks like the bill that finally passed will do great damage to the economy anyway — the compromise being about as non stimulatory as it could possible have been to an economy teetering on the edge of another recession.  Congratulations GOP.  I personally hope you see a loss in November of 2012 of stunning proportions.  You deserve it.  You deserve it badly.  I will work hard to make it happen.
