An opposition party challenges the party in power with better ideas.

A party of obstruction, that just says close everything down, is committing treason.

That's the difference.

When one party only puts forth proposals that are destructive, it is the other party's job to oppose them.

And treason does not mean what you think it means. See Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution. It is the party that you support that has been committing treason; taking the side of this nation's enemies against that of this nation and its people.

Feel free to define how opposition is treason.

It's probably along the same lines as defining any opposition to the current President's policies as “racism”—no matter how bad the policies obviously are, to suppose that the only reason one would oppose them is that one hates the President because he's black.

How bad what policies are? The policies that brought the country back from the brink of GOP destruction?

Republicans want to finish the job they started under Bush. They think if send the country back to the stone age, every white will have an easy and high paying job.

To a loon treason is anything that prohibits them from implementing policy and passing laws detrimental to the nation and society as a whole

I agree. Chuck Shumer and Nancy Pelosi are traitors. You are 100% correct and I 100% agree. Good call.

DEMOCRATS: PARTY OF OBSTRUCTION

The “resistance” remains determined to sabotage the Trump presidency -- rather than help the American people.
March 30, 2017

Daniel Greenfield


Forget all the pages of the Democratic Party platform. The only real Democratic platform left is the one sung by Groucho Marx in Horse Feathers. “Whatever it is, I’m against it.”

The elected Democrats still surviving amid the trendy restaurants of Adams Morgan and the boutiques of Dupont Circle are convinced that the voters elected them and that taxpayers are paying them to get nothing done.

...

Crippling the government doesn’t just hurt Republicans. It means that critical agencies that should be fighting terrorism, dealing with international threats, maintaining crucial infrastructure and taking care of those who need help the most have been kneecapped by the partisan obstructionism of the Dems.

But obstructionists don’t care. Their goal isn’t to get anything done, but to get things undone.

The Democrats don’t see themselves as an opposition party. They’ve made that clear. Instead they’ve adopted the radical left’s mantra of “resistance”. Opposition and ruling parties can compromise. But a resistance cannot compromise with the enemy. Compromise is collaboration. It’s treason to the cause.

...

If the Democrats want to obstruct the government, the first things that should be obstructed are their salaries.

Democrats: Party of Obstruction

When you actively try to take down a government in power through various means, you actually fall under the crime of "sedition." A felony.

I'm guessing he wasn't quite anticipating a GOP sweep, huh?

Pretty good chance he'd be saying "to resist is patriotic" today.

:laugh:
