    I noticed the GOPs compassion for the effects of the sequestor didn't kick in until it effected the GOP congressmen personally.

    The GOP doesn't have a soul so how could they have compassion?

    Many can be considered compassionate conservatives. However, the Tea Party has declared war on that, and some of the base have labeled Bush-style compassionate conservatism as "too liberal." Myself, I was more aligned with that style of conservatism than most other styles.

    So I guess "false" but that only lumps them in with the Democrats.

    People should stop using the word "compassionate" when talking about government.

    This is the part where the libertarian tries to convince us that government is neutral or an oppressive force, and no more.

    This is where the people realize the governments only tool is force. You don't have to like the truth for it to be the truth.
