Republicans have been flirting with treason
The republican party has decided to follow a radical philosophy ever since a Democrat won the White House, that is whatever the Democrats are for, even if it will be beneficial for the country overall, and even if it also will help their constituents that they represent in the republican party, they are against. They have managed to make the general public opinion of Congress to reach new lows, even below 10%, basically everyone and their mother hates this Congress, and the obstinate refusal of the GOP to give anything to the Democrats approaching a "win" is a principle reason. In recent history this radical strategy of the republicans is unprecedented and it leads one to question whether the republican party has been acting in a manner close to treason, in that they seem to not care about the welfare of this country in their intractable and vehement opposition to things which would help the United States get back on its feet just because they don't want to work with the Democrats to try and fix the immediate emergencies.
Our house is on fire and the republican party is out back, standing around and watching casually while the patriotic citizens around them are rushing to get water and douse the flames.
It makes me think that the republican party of today, even during World War 2 back in the day would be in opposition to the president and the Democrats, while the USA is being bombed on its own soil. The republican party seems to hate America and refuses to help the people or nation in anything, what is the use of them even being a player in this political system? I would say they should be ashamed of themselves but I doubt any of the republican party leadership has a conscience or any personal honor to start with.
