Republicans are their own worst enemy, even when the Democrats are down for the count they can't rally together and build a damn wall.

I am shocked and very pleased that my Senator Blunt stood up for the Constitution and put his usual Republican Hackery to the side, bravo Roy.

Is this really a surprise to anyone? Frankly the Republicans and Democrats are the same in the essence they just have a few superficial differences that on a national scale shouldn’t even be in the mix as those differences belong to local and state levels.
