Republican extremists WANT to trigger a financial crisis.

Just watching Bloomberg TV for a few minutes (I'm not a regular, I'd normally be at work), and the consensus seemed to be that failing to raise the debt ceiling WILL result in major financial damage and probably another financial crisis.

Then I realized, the Republican* extremists WANT exactly that. Because all they care about is their own power. If the economy crashes this year, by November 2016 many people will be completely oblivious to who caused it, and will blame Obama and the Democrats.

I am going to start planning my financial strategy around expectation that the elected Republican representatives of 2% of this country will cause a financial crash.

* Let's stop letting the Republican Party off the hook by always calling them "Tea Party" republicans or "Tea Party extremists". Until the Republican party disowns them, they ARE the Republican Party.
