    But it's only patriotic when Republicans use procedural techniques. It's terrorism when Democrats do it.
    With a filibuster they are in the Senate representing there constituents on the floor. A filibuster can be ended with a vote. What this is an effective shutdown of Government. Can you imagine what would happen on the State and Federal level if elected officials ran away from their duties just because they disagree with a bill?

    Probably complain about the GOP's failure to compromise with the Dems.

    and wail and gnash their teeth at how awful a government shut down is, and how it can never be countenanced, etc.

    Assembly Rule 30 (3)
    (3) A number smaller than a majority of the current membership may, however, adjourn the assembly or compel the attendance of absent members.

    I wonder if the Senate will ratchet up the stakes and begin talking about ethics violations...

    Until they change the rules and make it to where a quorum can still go on if politicians deliberately skip town to miss vote or change the rules only requiring a simple majority then the minority will always have the option of skipping town.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
