    Substitute "Democratic" party for "Tea" party and you would actually be right. Actually read the Bill of Rights as they were written, and you would probably continue to misinterpret the meaning of not only the second, but all ten amendments in the Bill of Rights. Harry Reid, is no Tea Party supporter, but he sure has held the "government" hostage throughout this debate. Considering that Obama could not get a budget through even at the time he had a majority in both houses of Congress, I am not at all surprised we have come to this point.

    Letter faxed to my legislators this morning:

    October 17, 2013


    United States Constitution, Fourteenth Amendment, SECTION 4:

    "The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void."
    That the President would use the threat of defaulting on our debt payments as a loaded gun to the head of congress is reprehensible in the extreme, and it must never be allowed to happen again. His threat to default on our debt payment in violation of the Constitution, placing not only our own economy, but the world economy as well, into a state of panic is an impeachable offense.

    Legislation MUST be passed FORTHWITH to insure that no entity - presidential or congressional - can ever use this threat again by GUARANTEEING that debt payments will be made. Such a guarantee will not only calm our own citizens, but will also reassure foreign creditors as well.

    In addition, while the Constitution bans default on LEGITIMATE debt, it also bans payment of any obligation to enemies of this country. We have no business supporting the Muslim Brotherhood or any other terrorist organization that has threatened or waged war against the United States, or has worked to recruit citizens of this country with the goal of insurrection and rebellion. Such payments are not legitimate obligations and must be banned.

    The brinksmanship ends now.
