Deadlock.

The President cannot give in.

<snip>

House Republicans have shut down the government and are threatening to keep the government shuttered not in order to delay further discussion on a pending bill, but rather in an attempt to rewrite the history of the legislature, to override a Constitutional law that has already been decided and judged constitutional before the Supreme Court.

<snip>

If we allow extremists to hold us hostage, they will continue to hold us hostage and we open the door to any extremist who disagrees with the majority.

If they are successful, then the very next use of this tactic will be its use to defund any portion of our civilization that the outvoted minority vehemently disagrees with, from abortion to immigration to energy to climate change to gay rights to evolution right on across the political spectrum to oil drilling and nuclear power to gun control to the military to law enforcement.

1. In fact they already have much of what they want

The Libertarian Dream- Government consisting only of courts (to protect copyright and enforce contracts) and the Military. Rules enforcement gutted due to the closure of OSHA, EPA, FDA, etc. Right now there are no inspections of seafoods or meats by the government. Federally funded science is being shut down as well. If the tbaggers get their way they will only fund those parts of the government they like.

2. So much for bipartisanship. You can't appease the unappeasable.
