@lightweight confessed-child-molesting speaker-of-the-house for 8 years Denis Hastert's Hastert Rule say that a party will not allow to come to vote any rule which the other side would be able to pass.
what's happening now feels even sicker & more disgusting. the conservatives- the party which has increased the debt multiple-trillions of dollars every term they've been in power- are refusing to allow the US to pay it's debts. because it'll blow up in America's face & they'll get to hold that against the fault-less Democrats during the election.
just endless disgusting levels of sabotage against my country: say anything do anything measures to inflict harm against all others.
@jauntywunderkind420 I revile the GOP... but I have very little time for the DEMs either. I'm quite sure the US needs to destroy the current duopoly and find a progressive government, like what Sanders would've provided, to restore any semblance of internal unity or external respect. The US conservatives (even most US 'liberals' are very conservative by non-US standards) are simply selfish and anti-intellectual... wanting to retain privilege and even respect they didn't earn.
