I think that both parties should declare the debt limit as a political weapon of mass destruction which can't be used. I mean, it is silly to have a country that has 237 years building up its reputation and then have people threaten to tear it down because they're not getting some other matter.
The hard left labels anyone who challenges it 'divisive.' The leftists live in a world where everyone is free to look different but must think the same. I don't play their game.
