When I listen to Republicans, I wish that I could create a room...

A room that's bound solely by the physics of their own rhetoric. It'll be a representation of the world by which they expect the rest of us to live in, only they'll find that the things that they claim will only apply to them.

I'd put them into this room and I'd want see how long they'd last before they would give up. They could leave this room any time they'd want to.

However, I would score each Republican on the length of time they'd last in it.

Now, those that would stay in this Physics of Republicanism room the longest would get the best scores.

Although I think that the zealots, fanatics and sociopaths would top off the list in their ability to withstand the room, and the cowards, idiots and craven liars would leave the room almost immediately.

And perhaps one can surmise that each Republican could be classified in a way as was Schröedinger's Cat in his box… That unless you open the door to the room and observe the Republican, or unless the Republican quickly leaves the room, there's really no way of knowing if such a person would remain a Republican if they had to live solely under the conditions of their own ideology and rhetoric. That without direct observation or immediate exit, their republicanism would be in a state of paradoxical flux and we would not know if it either exists or doesn't exist.

I wouldn't want to enter the room at all and I assume that the rest of you feel the same. But then again, we're NOT Republicans.

But it's no secret that they're hypocrites who think that they can live in world not bound by their own design. They wish to design a world that only applies to the OTHER and not to themselves. It's my firm belief that these people can do and say the things that they claim is good for the rest of us only because there is NO room that they'd forced into to prove all the crap that they say.

Instead, the system that currently exists, otherwise known as "The Real World" is there to bail these motherfuckers out when they lead us all of the cliff with "Too big to fail".

Republicans fail, as we all do. But what makes them a problem is that they take their failures and double down on them, always thinking that they'd arrive to a different result from their same rhetoric and ideology.

Another famous physicist had something very important to say about that behavior: Albert Einstein, when he said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

If that doesn't describe Republicans to a tee, I don't know what does.
