Right Wing Republicans Need a Course in How to Govern

Republicans advocating for shutting down the US government are horrible people who have no sense of patriotism. These right wing crazy ideologues zealously believe they must entrench themselves in intractable opposition to anything progressive, regardless of how their regressive positions harm people.

All of Congress takes an oath to support the Constitution of the United States, but Republicans appear to be enchanted by their ego rather than caring for the people they represent. Congress does not just represent the people who voted for them. Rather, Congress represents all Americans.  

Here's a primer for Republicans who don't
understand what it means to be patriotic:

1.  patriotism:  
devoted love, support, and defense of one's country; national loyalty

2.  patriot
a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion

3.  treason
the offense of acting to overthrow one's government

4.  sedition
incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government

5.  anarchy
a state of society without government or law

The above are not complicated, but Republicans seem to prefer ignoring the first two bullets and, by default, are complicit with lessons 3, 4 and 5.

Rather than support hard working people who rely on government for leadership, right wing Republicans want to do what they were unable to accomplish in 2012, when Governor Romney lost the Republican election. President Obama won the 2012 election by a wide margin. From the moment of Obama's victory, Republicans wormed their way into figuring out how to upset the outcome of the Obama victory.

Since the Republican caucus is now controlled by a minority of right wing zealots, it seems to me they should be guilty as charged of being unpatriotic and falling into seditious behavior.

This irresponsible behavior must be punished.  

Meanwhile, all Republicans should be required to write one thousand times on the Congressional blackboard:

I was elected to represent all the people in "We the People".
I was elected to represent all the people in "We the People"
I was elected to represent all the people in "We the People"

This tragic melodrama of governing by shutting down government is evidence of "dunce cap" politics. It must be remedied by replacing everybody who votes on regressive and seditious legislation.
