You know how Republicans keep complaining about "Regulations hurt the economy"? Well what do you call THIS?!
I call this finger-pointing that won't get anything done. This is not going to help you with your cause, Louis. It will only divide people, and thus weaken your support group to generate actually positive political change.
First let's address a blatant reality: you are aware who has the big majority in the senate right (53 Democrats, to 45 Republicans, to only a measly two Independents). These guys. Harry Reid? Nancy Palosi? John "Let-Hamas-Commit-Genocide" Kerry? And what about President Obama who had the power to veto this bill? I mean are they all hypocritical republicans? Ergun Cantor was one (he supported a lot of crappy regulations and even the Bailouts, which go against the very principles of minarchy)...but he just lost his job to a true Libertarian. And more of that old guard is starting to get replaced by Paul Ryans and Tom Marinos.
You pointed the finger on mere republican partisanship and totally missed the mark, just like many want you to do, Louis. They don't want you to read the laws, just fit in a certain series of lines in the sand. These Senators want you to blame the Republicans/ Democrats/Jews/Videogames/ Evil Invisible Gnomes/ Jewish Evil Invisible Gnomes/ Global Warming to herd you and galvanize electorally and politically. When it's "Us against them" then they got you to stop questioning your group and star questioning what is "other than" the group, no matter how valid or human those people on the other side of the fence might be. Savy politicians and media pundits create oversimplified narratives that micro-target potential voters to keep them from looking behind the hood and seeing that the whole first-past the-post, gerrymandered, earmarked, corporativistic, system is bonk. I mean, remember who re-signed The Patriot Act and whose administration was involved in the NSA, IRS, and CIA's recent snooping on average people as of late? He wasn't a Republican... Something tells you don't want to face a big defect in your own worldview and just want to randomly blame a people group, and this won't help you overcome this problem This isn't going to help Louis. If you think this law is wrong - and I am with you there, dude - then you can't be finger pointing and going off the mouth but actually advocate for your position. If you are going to address the issue and seek a solution - then don't oversimplify and vent at people: be a responsible citizen do something about it.
To paraphrase one of the foul Republicans 'They work for you Louis...It's not the other way around.'
So let's think of what needs to be done to change this, and what you are going to do about it. Bud, if you make a petition I will be the first to sign it. If you have place to point out to us where there already is one - I will go an sign it. If you can tell me what bone heads supported this legislation (both with a D and an R in front of there name please) - I will then warn people not to vote for them again (Guys like Mitch Mcrackpot and Harry Greed alike). Give me something to work with here. What can we do to help your cause?
