Tea Party Politics: A Look Inside the Republican Suicide Machine | Politics News | Rolling Stone

This article by Tim Dickinson of Rolling Stone clearly recounts the changes in the Republican Party which have led to the present (October 2013) national government shutdown and brink of default.  There are now three Republican Parties and they are infighting like rats in a sack. In 2014 the voters of Morgan County and Ohio 15th Congressional District can help the country get out of this mess by voting for Scott Wharton for Congress (whartonforcongress.com)  and returning Steve Stivers to private life.
