The extremely dangerous and mind-numbing gridlock the Republican Tea Party is imposing on not only American citizens, but indeed the entire world, boils down to this: their complete disregard of the second greatest commandment of the God who created them: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
This can be translated as the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
It would be well if all humanity subscribed to these principles. It is painfully obvious that the Republicans (who with their lips claim to have the moral high ground!) do not. Greed is probably the reason.
