Congressman can only be called a radical
If one observed a country which had a dysfunctional government, high unemployment, a growing inequality in income, freedom and influence, where little effort was made to maintain infrastructure, the police oppressed more and more liberties with increased weapons and unpopular wars were fought endlessly, where one in six lived in poverty, education was becoming too expensive for many, the super rich bought and directed government representatives, wages were so low that the limited life sustaining benefits of society were needed even for the employed, where religious fanatics influenced large segments of the population and the ability to vote was under attack – one might conclude that that unstable society is ripe for revolution.
The Teapublican Representative of this congressional district voted to keep the government shutdown and for America to default on its loans. This in no way can be considered conservative thinking. It is unmistakably radical.
