When you threaten to harm the country if you don't get what you want then

what else can you be called except for a terrorist.

Republicans aren't denying that not raising the debt ceiling would harm the country greatly.

Yet those that have sworn to protect this country are suggesting that they will harm it if they do not get what they want.

Why can't this be called out for what it is... Domestic terrorism.

1. They learned well from Osama Bin Laden

No wonder why Bush was so reluctant to pursue him in Afghanistan. Bin Laden was providing the blueprint for future Republican tactics and the GOP didn't want their mentor to be harmed.

4. Its worse than that

The Republicans literally taught Bin Laden how to be a terrorist in the late 80's so he could rouse the Afghan's into fighting the Russians.

2. It's more likely to be called 'extortion' or 'blackmail.' No boom-boom, just slow death.

But I agree with your sentiment. They will use the weasel words and say it won't come to that, but their ruling philosophy is to maintain inequality and discrimination to create immense wealth. They advocate selling off the commons that gave less advantaged people a way out of crushing poverty under the guise of libertarianism and private property - no appreciation for those who made them wealthy, they are to be discarded once the prize is in view. They see no problem in the inherent violence of what they do with a pen to millions of people. We must define our vision of what is good. The DNC convention did an excellent job of describing our vision. The RNC convention described their vision as well.

3. Sadly, right-wing domestic terrorism doesn't rise to a piffle in the big

scheme of things, no more than mass carnage with a weapon designed for of mass slaughter does. After all, this is an Amurika that has done been perverted to the core by a constant barrage of right-ring ideology/dogma/hate/agenda.
