At this point in our nation's history 'we the people' live in a condition of desperation and fear. Never in my lifetime have I seen over half our citizens in such a confused state of mind ... and I go back to FDR!

You 'career' politicians have been living inside 'the beltway' for so long that you've literally ignored or forgotten the aspirations and desires of the hard working citizens of our great nation. Your opponents, on the other hand, are living on the streets of Chicago, in their minds, and truly understand exactly how to cater to the entitlement wishes of a segment of society composed of un or undereducated and uninformed citizens. These are generally the 'takers' and not the 'producers' . They know how to ''work the pie' for the free goodies. And this segment of society is growing each and every day.

Speaker Boehner, with all due respect, when the 21st century train stopped at the station to load up, you and your dinosaur establishment friends, in both the House and Senate, refused to get on! Consider Mitch McConnell and his groupies! The Tea Party folks were already on board with a copy of the Constitution in their pockets. So, what was the dinosaur Congress' answer to them when they made themselves known ... "we've got to fight these guys and call them whacko birds". They are not the enemy, John, they are the answer to the Republican cause. They actually stand on principles unlike you principle 'compromisers'. By the way, what is the name you give to a 'compromised' principle? Would it be, God forbid, a surrender? No wonder your rating as a political party is in the sewer!

You need to understand that the Tea Party is nothing more than the rebirth of the original principles set forth by the Republican Party. So, you and your cronies need to stop calling them the 'Tea Party' people and start recognizing them as who they really are ... Constitutional, principled patriots!

But, sad to say, I don't believe you have it in you any longer. You need to resign and leave Congress this year. And, take the 28 Republicans who voted for raising the debt ceiling, with no restrictions, along with you. And, while you're at it, write a letter to Reince Priebus of the RNC and tell him to go away as well! Remember when Obama said 'if they bring a knife to the fight, we'll bring a gun'? Well, you guys have brought the knife. The Tea Party has the guns! Yet, you down them. Amazingly stupid!

I'm almost certain you won't take this advice because, quite frankly, you actually think you're doing a good job! Talk about lying to yourself and becoming totally blind to reality ... you've managed to accomplish it.

Many of us who were proud that you became Speaker of The House have become quite disenchanted with your lack of leadership, attack on the Tea Party, and your surrenders to our empty suit president. Have some courage and do the right thing for your country. Pledge your life, your fortune, and your sacred honor to the continued success of the greatest nation on the face of this earth ... EVER! Otherwise, it's time for you to step aside and let someone who understands this era take over.

I said from the beginning that the Tea Party was going to end up being a tool used by the GOP to win the midterm elections in '10 then cast aside. The Partiers were flawed in hitching their wagn to the GOP instead of going ... More ›

Mr Pritts.....So now, you pick and choose comments made before your reply and try to make a point by disregarding the complete story. Consumption of beer has nothing to do with the culture of Germany. I wonder how they ... More ›

Shades of Obama.....I guess that we're just a bunch of unexceptional cretins. BTW, my comments mentioned making beer and standards. There you go again. Must be genetic.
