To the Editor:
The House Republicans controlled by the libertarians are threatening to usurp our balance of power by shutting down our government if Obamacare is not defunded. Republicans added more amendments to the Affordable Care Act bill than Democrats. All three branches of government have ruled Obamacare as the law of the land. Americans voted again for the President who signed the bill into law.
Libertarian Republicans seem to be advocating anarchy. The definition that they lean toward is “a utopian society of individuals who enjoy complete freedom from government.” Utopian is defined as “advocating impractically ideal political schemes.” Others define anarchy as “political disorder due to lack of governmental authority.” Do you imagine al-Qaeda would love to see our country in a state of confusion and disarray when those protecting our country are not being paid and only able to respond to emergencies?
