But we also need a reality check here. The bigger problems with gridlock and dysfunction are not because individuals do not trust each other; they are because of larger factors in the political process and the culture.
The Indiana Republican Assembly (INRA) has endorsed conservative candidate JD Miniear for US House 7th District for the Indiana Primaries on May 6, 2014. Miniear is running to unseat Andre Carson (D), and would be the first Republican to win that seat in 42 years.
Today Reid shot his mouth off in front of cameras, and all of America recoiled in horror. This is the Democrats’ disgraceful Shutdown Theater reduced to its essentials, the battle cry of our over-indulged ruling class given full throat, as they wage war against America to retain their power and privileges. Harry Reid and his party are going to make you suffer, citizens, until you submit to their demands, and halt the unspeakable outrage of a shutdown that has put so many highly-compensated non-essential government employees on the sidelines.
Democrats and their media allies have spent the past week labeling Republicans “anarchists,” “fanatics,” “radicals,” and “terrorists” who are wholly to blame for the situation that we are told will soon lead to a government shutdown. . .

Lunching in the Capitol with other Texas Republicans Thursday, DeLay said he was on his knees praying with prominent religious conservatives on Capitol Hill when his lawyer called with the news that a Texas appeals court had overturned his conviction. DeLay told reporters that he never felt burdened by the case, even though he says it cost him millions of dollars.
Nothing better demonstrates the need for an NFRA and a robust Republican Assembly movement in every state than the “fiscal cliff” deal just passed.
Note well: nearly all the House Republicans voted against the deal, as did key Senators like Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, etc. The tax-and-spend nightmare is brought to you by the Dems: Obama, Reid, and nearly every single House Democrat. Boehner will get his come-uppance shortly.
Against all the chorus shouted from the media and congressional bleachers — that he had failed by walking out on a bad deal with Gorbachev or recklessly fired striking air traffic controllers who were striking against federal law — Ronald Reagan never blinked. And the fact that he didn’t blink made America — and the world — an infinitely better place.
Conservatives are at a turning point. If they go along with a bad deal now they won’t be able to take a stand against it in the next two to four years. Obama wants to eliminate Republicans’ ability to thwart his actions. He’d be satisfied with no deal on the fiscal cliff or to get one that is a terrible deal for conservatives.
Next month, Republicans will have control in 25 states–covering about 53% of the U.S. population–and Democrats will control 15 states–or about 37% of the population. This presents an opportunity for citizens to observe whose ideas are most successful.
“The story is Republicans did well elsewhere, so it wasn’t a wholesale repudiation of the party,” even with a loss by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney . . .
