Uninspected Green Eggs and
Genetically Altered Corn-Fed Ham
By Emma X
I do not like green eggs
and ham. I would not
like them anywhere. I'll
eat the mouse, though.
You can have The House.
As of this writing Ted Cruz is conducting a pseudo filibuster to defund Obamacare. Ted has vowed to do anything he can to end the horror. I’m sure by Friday Ted’s one man crusade will be over. Odds are the whole show will come down to one more failed attempt to persuade the Senate to defund. But Ted is a crusader. He's in it for the long haul. His real mission is to rally the troops and prepare them for the greater conflict to come.
To this point people may not have taken them seriously. The antics and rhetoric of the Tea Party have often crossed over to lunacy. But the lunatics have now taken over a whole wing of the asylum, so it is time for the electorate to take heed.
The people who need to wake up to Ted’s revolutionary reality are not the general voting population, who have repeatedly said “enough already”, but the Tea Party voting base, who rabidly support the momentum without a clue as to why. Sure, there is the 'Jesus' message, the racist appeasement, the homophobic crusade, the guns and ammo litany, and the rock-star freedom of being an unapologetic white guy in an aggressively changing racial demographic. The Tea Party provides a raucous rebel battle cry for every disenfranchised person who cannot adapt to social change. But they will be geriatric sheep to the Entitlements slaughter. Because once Ted and the gang defeat Obamacare, they will take on Medicare, then Social Security, then insurance industry regulations, then everything else that Big Business does not like. The people who foster fear of the slippery slope to a Socialist Nanny State are greasing the skids for a Corporate tax-free Utopia where markets live a natural life and people die a natural death unencumbered by government interference at any point.
