Let's see if I've got the chronology down correctly.

In 2006, justly disgusted with the Republican Party, a majority of the people in these United States expressed their hatred of the Red Faction in the mid-term elections by handing the U.S. House of Representatives to the Wicked Witch of the West.

Y'know; the Air-Force-Jet-Demanding Nancy Pelosi, recipient of millions in "honest graft" by way of insider trading that would get any of us mere "civilians" long stretches in federal prisons.

In 2008, further enraged by the Republican Party establishment—who nominated "Crash Test Johnnie" McCain, the epitome of RINO "go along to get along," for the presidency—the voters not only kept the House in the hands of the "Liberal" fascists but threw the bastids a cloture-invoking majority in the Senate.

And, of course, we got Barry Soebarkah, former resident of Mentang, Indonesia, who can't come up with a green card much less a birth certificate that isn't a digital forgery cobbled together by an incompetent campaign worker who barely knew enough about Photoshop to load the program.

So in 2010, not really thinking that they'd actually get enough lipstick on this pig to convince anybody she was pretty enough to kiss, they slammed together yet another socialized medicine masturbation fantasy and called it "the Affordable Care Act."

This is in line with the time-honored fascist tradition of naming their legislative efforts at pillage and slaughter so they sound all beneficial and warm 'n fuzzy. Sort of like calling a plan to murder every third person walking through Grand Central Station "the Commuter Crowding Reduction Act."

Surprising the hell out of both factions in the legislature, the 2010 summer recess—during which the congresscritters went home to press the flesh in routine "town hall meetings" with the cattle who placidly moo for them—saw them goddam near winding up wearing molten tar and poultry offal as the constituents arrived in large numbers to express their rage at getting Obamacare run up the national cloaca.

That's when the "Taxed Enough Already!" TEA Party movement got started.

People were mad as hell, and instead of playing "Silent Majority," they were coming out in force—exploiting the Internet and the alternative media especially—to let their elected thugs know about it.

(The Republican establishment has tried to co-opt it, to "Astroturf" it safely, but thus far they've failed abysmally. They're squirming right now in terror, because they may not be able to get away with nominating a RINO like McCain or a lump of oatmeal like Romney at the top of the ticket in 2016.)

Good heavens, something remotely resembling a constitutionalist as President in 2017? The banksters who own the Republican Party establishment are gonna blow a cork!

This notwithstanding, the TEA Party rage ripped the National Socialist Democrat American Party (NSDAP) a new one in the 2010 mid-term elections, giving the Republicans a solid majority in the House of Representatives, and this majority was sustained through the re-election chicanery perpetrated by Michelle's Metrosexual Meatpuppet in 2012.

So where does that leave us? Well, the Red Faction runs the U.S. House of Representatives right now—holding the power to tax and to appropriate funds for running the federal government—only because the people of America want Obamacare killed.

That's what the elections of 2010 told our governing class, and 2012 reiterated the message. Most Americans know precisely how horrible that goddam abomination really is, and they want it removed the way they'd want a rabid dog removed from a child's bedroom.

The U.S. House of Representatives has the authority and the ability to put down that diseased animal. They can strangle it to death, and that's precisely what the Republicans have been put in office to do.

And the "Liberal" fascists are really sweating over that, the miserable predatory treasonous slime.

Now, as libertarians, where does this leave us?

There's always the Schadenfreude element of "Let's you and him fight!" but what might really be accomplished if the Republicans—mirabile dictu—show some indication that they're able to grow a spine over this one undeniably economy-killing ghodawfulness? Or maybe a notochord.

I ain't holding my breath, but I am a speculative fiction fan. Let's speculate.


(Neale Osborn remarked re this essay:

Republicans—the American French Party. First to surrender when winning. Able to wreck stunning victories with a single capitulation. Less powerful than, well, the Democrats they outnumber.

Having an election without republicans is like going deer hunting without an accordion.) (Neale Osborn remarked re this essay:
