Yeah my last bit of pointless optimism has been ruthlessly crushed lately.

I don't understand why Freedom Caucus had such hard-on for Bohener, yet not a peep about this?

Congress approves surveillance legislation

Isn't this exactly what they had Ryan promise not to do?

Ryan is also a douche. Optimism was pointless, and misplaced.

The fact that people are still against the FC and ragging on them because they were unable to stop that type of behavior is just one small example illustrating why there is no hope.

Even most of the people who complain about the status quo are easily made to help enforce it and strike out at any nail that stands out against it.

I don't subscribe to "enemy of my enemy is my friend" ideology. Specifically, to me they are at best equal evils.

What I want to highlight is that it is likely FC is in Ryan's pocket, and Bohner ousting and 'hesitant rescuer' was nothing more than internal GOP power play. Otherwise, why is FC not attempting to oust Ryan for doing exactly the same thing as Bohner?

Because their political capital is all used up. Its not like they got any support.

As I said, even other groups who dislike the status quo hammered against them. Even though their goals should in theory have been desirable to many, all it takes is a few hit pieces by status quo pushers and because other disagree on totally unrelated things they get no support.

Yeah thats a good article, and even about 90% accurate I'd say.

What I find interesting, is that a lot of what is happening right now vindicated my views on TP.
