1. First thought was the song: "How do you solve a problem like Maria..." Only changing it to GOP....

Not sure how the song would go but that's what popped to mind given the title.

9. That's EXACTLY the same reaction I first had!

That is hilarious!

The OP is also sadly true, however

3. If I handled problems like the Republicans in Congress ...

I'd be accused of throwing a tantrum and refusing to work ...

Oh, you're saying that THEY are the problem you're trying to handle???

6. The way you deal with any other bully

You whack them in the head with a 2x4 and tell 'em that's just to make sure they're listening, and if they piss you off, all Hell will rain down on them.

That's all that's ever worked.

Appeasement, triangulation, and soaring oratory have never worked, never will.

2x4s.

We just need to figure out all of it.

8. Vote and fucking keep voting. Our side created this nightmare when a lot of our voters sat on their

asses during the 2010 midterms.

11. +1,000

Vote them out until future generations don't remember their names. It's all they understand. If we don't keep our act together, they'll finish this country off and not bat an eyelash doing it.

20. Damn right!!!

ALWAYS be able to say, "Yes, I VOTED this time; I NEVER MISS the opportunity to vote, even if the candidate isn't perfect."

To do otherwise is suicidal.

18. I would love to see that happen.

It's so clearly an attempt to circumvent the will of the people. I know it's an old trick, but it is one that needs to go.
