How can you claim to be for Democracy and against voting?
It all started in Texas in 2003 when state senate Democrats left the state en mass because it was the Republicans turn to present a redistricting plan. The Wisconsin Democrats flew the coop when the Republican governor proposed state workers contribute a percentage of the cost of their health care and retirement plans, still less than normal in the private sector. The trigger issue in Indiana, as I understand it from preliminary reports, is a requirement supported by Democrats, that civil service workers pay a fee to unions they chose not to join.
Bonnie and Clyde, I can understand. They were common criminals and had good reason to go on the run, to cross state lines and hide from the police. We can’t say that about the Democrats, can we. Their actions are extraordinary, certainly not common.
State legislators only need to leave the state to escape certain laws of their state. Washington legislators would need to leave the nation to accomplish the same objective. Do you see where I am going here? Can’t we get the Republican Congress to propose something on which the Democrats don’t want to vote? Even if they are only gone for a week or two it would be like opening the windows on an early spring day.
