    What does wanting anything to happen have to do with tyrannical powers?

    If so, Cruz will flibuster on the floor as long as he can, like R. Paul, and then hope others, like Rubio and Lee, will join hin in filibustering October and on.

    Obama has the power to veto but the bill will not come to his desk as is because it will not pass the Senate. Even if it did, Congress could override the veto with a supermajority. So no president could cause a government shutdown.

    There are 55 posts on this subject thread, but your post alone stands starkly out as the only one that seemingly intentionally shouts out anti-religious cursing. Unnecessary cursing that is inserted in such a manner even that it seems awkward and inappropriate for the original subject matter. The rules request at least a slim adherence to the subject matter of the OP and I for one would appreciate a more restrained posting demonstration of ability to follow the thoughts on the thread as opposed to some sort of non-related personal agenda.

    God, could we possibly be so lucky as to have this intellectual giant as the Republican Presidential nominee in 2016?
    Just a bit of advise, don't say someone else is taking stupidity to a new level and then put up a link from Salon...ok? You look like you're projecting...

    My thoughts are that I hope that the ignorant losers on the far right in the GOP are stupid enough to shut the government down.

    I guarantee you that they won't like the payback that they will get from the voters.
