Indiana Democrat Congressmen have joined Wisconsin Democrat Congressmen in their flight to Illinois. Why? Because the Illinois Governor is a Democrat. You see, if the Democrats would flee to a state with a Republican Governor (Michigan or Ohio, for examples), the Republican Governor could force the out-of-state Democrat Congressmen to return to their states and the Republican Governor of those states could force the Democrat fleebaggers to show up in Legislature.
But why are they fleeing at all? That’s simple. The Democrat legislators are fleeing in order to prevent democratically elected legislatures from doing their democratically required duties because the Democrats don’t like what We The People want the democratically elected legislatures to do. Understand, the Democrats are refusing to follow Legislature Rules, and at least with Wisconsin Democrats, violating State Law, which is very different from Republicans obeying the Law and obeying Senate Rules.
From Ed Morrissey:
At what point does the decision to hold democracy hostage transform from a localized example of petulance to a national strategy? Perhaps when Democrats try to paralyze another state legislature whose agenda they cannot control … say, in Indiana, for example:
Given the White House and DNC involvement in the Madison protests, it seems clear that this has become a national strategy on the part of Democrats — to run out on legislatures where they hold the minority, and to hijack government in an attempt to make the majority the servant of the minority. The party should change its name to the Anti-Democrats … or, since they seem enamored of running away as a political tactic, we can take a page from their book and call them Fleebaggers instead.
Democrats are violating the rules in order to shut down Wisconsin and Indiana governments. And Democrats are planning for a federal government shut down after Republicans passed a Continuing Resolution in the House of Representatives. Democrats are playing a game of Russian Roulette, thinking any government shut down benefits Democrats. Problem: The version of Russian Roulette the Anti-Democrat Party is playing? It’s the Public Education version. Instead of having a live round in a single chamber of a six-chamber revolver, they have chosen to have five live rounds in a six-chamber revolver. This will not work out well for Democrats.
And the grass-roots TEA Party movement is being fed very well by the incalcitrant Anti-Democrats. All this foolishness by the Anti-Democrats bodes well for the nation as 2012 approaches. Expect even further Anti-Democrat losses at the polls as Conservatives supplant even larger numbers.
