    Liberals Will Learn to Love Obstructionism

    For years while Democrats have controlled the White House and the Senate they and the media have complained about "Republican Obstructionism". In a few days, voters will give Republicans control of both the House and the Senate.

    Beginning in January, the Republican controlled Congress will, for the next two years, attempt to pass legislation and send it to the White House for President Obama to sign. That is the will of the People. Most of their efforts will be blocked by Democrat obstructionism in the Senate, and what little gets to the President will be vetoed with more liberal obstructionism.

    Suddenly, obstructionism will be called something else, and most certainly won't be criticized by Democrats and their lackeys in the media. They will learn to love obstructionism.

    Liberals thought so. Conservatives can say the same now.

    But do you agree that you'll want Democrats to be obstructionists for the next two years? And on the off-chance we get a Republican in the White House and a Republican congress, won't you rely on obstructionist filibusters in the Senate to block conservative legislation? Won't you learn to love obstructionism, or whatever you choose to call it at the time?

    I want them to make educated decisions not just block everything for political gain. We'll see. It's a myth that republicans don't like to spend.

    Doesn't the recent executive action regarding immigration show the exact opposite. Rather than coming up with a plan (as if) for immigration reform, they chose to let Obama lead the way. Thus, even with the majority, they are seen as naysayers and obstructionists. Not surprising given that this is all the GOP can do these days. And it took less than a couple of weeks to prove your OP wrong. Hilarious.

    Who cares.

    If you want true freedom, leave. This two-party system is doomed to fail. The only thing the U.S. leads in anymore is obesity and prisoners per capita.
