Tea Party Treason and Unconstitutional Processes

In the end, it is worse than extortion.  It it treason to create a logjam by insisting on changing laws through the budget and debt ceiling processes.  Which is exactly what Republicans including Boehner, Cantor, and Cruz are doing.

We have a democratic process for changing the laws.  It does not involve holding the entire government, or the full faith and credit of that government hostage, so that a minority with no concern for the general welfare can change laws.  Their lack of concern for the general welfare shows they should not be changing laws.

I'd go so far as to say both the current budget processes (not part of the Constitution) and debt ceiling process (which has always been used as political football...but never the end, the uncolored debt ceiling has always gotten passed) enable this treason in a most unrepublican way.  I'd hold them unconstitutional.
