“Elimination of debt ceiling passes House”
House GOP turns power of the purse over to the imperial President. Who likely won’t use his new-found (albeit “temporary”) powers to invent and spend money that doesn’t exist — in a move that in fact acts as a “partial repeal of representative government” — in any way that could be described as “malicious.”
Frankly, I’m embarrassed that you’d even suggest such a thing. And I’m talking to you who were thinking it, too. It’s outrageous, and I’m outraged.
We’re a loyal opposition. We respect the office of the Presidency, even if only in the abstract, making no accommodation for how that office may be corrupted or used unconstitutionally to operate a leftist coup, turning a representative republic into a populist liberal fascist state.
Our loyalty is, after all, what makes us shiny. And being shiny is everything.
