I cannot oppose this more strongly

In just 13 words the man encapsulated what our government thinks of us:

I am the senator. You are the citizen. You need to be quiet.

Exactly. Just shut up and do as you're told. I am important and powerful and you are not. Unless you are lining my pockets I don't give a rat's ass about you or your opinion.

If the NC GOP has any principles the man would be censured. If they had any sense, they'd put him out to pasture to "spend more time with his family".

If you think they actually will I have a bridge to sell you.

This, to me, is a perfect example of what the Tea Party has been complaining about. This same attitude is held by Karl Rove, Rence Prebius, John McCain, John Boehner and all the Old Guard who think they're our betters and shovel piles of shit at us during election season to make sure we do our bit to keep them where they are. Then they turn around and violate their supposed principles by putting donors ahead of principles, businesses ahead of markets and big corporations ahead of the entrepreneurs.

This is what Steve Newton is always on about. It is why people are leaving the GOP. The time may well have come that the GOP is beyond saving and must be destroyed and rebuilt to be worth anything again. Maybe the new generation of Rubio, Cruz and Paul will prove me wrong but only time will tell.
