He’s living in a fantasy world. We had terrible economy, we had obamacare, we had a prez with a <50 approval. We still lost. Americans are fucking idiots. When the dems say that the fault is the repubs for not stopping the tax increases, the American people will believe them. Our country is that stupid.

I’ll third that. Chris, sometimes people need a whack with a cluebat to open their eyes and tiny brains. It’s obvious that logic and facts do not register with the Uhbamunists and their world view, and as long as things are tolerable, they’ll drift along oblivious, but when the SHTF, their free cookies will stop, and we will have a Weimar or a Zimbabwe, and those in power will be blamed. Getting there will be painful and may even end in blood, but I see it as lancing a boil; something to be endured, but in the end, the thing to do.

Hey!!! They all know Bush did it when he started all those wars and didn’t tax the evil rich white man—- it’s their turn to pay their share of the debt Bush caused because he gave the rich tax breaks. C’mon we all know that.

I would say, “let them own it”, or deny them a quorum… except that there’s no winning this. The Republicans will be the bad guys here no matter what happens and no matter who owns it. The illiberals have the propaganda machine.
I’m afraid we classical liberals have a few generations of wandering in the wilderness ahead of us. We need to use that time wisely, and infiltrate the schools and the media. We must start subverting the progressive regressive message. We must start demanding that environmental extremism religion be held to the same first amendment standard as prayer in public school. Then maybe we’ll have a prayer.
Any tax initiative has to be tested out on all Government employees, including the President, Congress, Senate and Supreme Court for a period of two or three years BEFORE they can be enacted onto the general public.
These are Communists who have owned the media now for decades…they can make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear (or Jackie O outta Michelle Obama). If we do what Rand says, believe me it would never be owned by the Left.
I’ve said the House simply puts forth their bill – we own the majority there and can pass what we want so we pass a bill that keeps the tax rates for those over $250 k where they are now, and we drop the rates by 5% for the rest of Americans. Then we let Harry Reid say “No” to more money in the pockets of the middle class and if Reid and Obama decide to sound the alarm about the deficit, then we’ve finally gotten them where we wanted them.
I’ve been recommending this for some time, on several forums.
Hey, Mr Senator: if you’re looking for new ideas, just visit the porch!

If we don’t fight them every inch of the way, then tyranny, looting, poverty, and chaos will prevail; and America, as such, will cease to exist.
No, it won’t be just an election cycle ending in a petulant “See? I toldjaso!” victory for constitutional republicanism and freedom. The Progressives and their addicts will not simply come to their senses. Progs will not recognize that they have done the wrong thing. They will claim that they haven’t done enough, and they will become even more totalitarian.
Those individuals and groups who gain power via unfettered central power will never relinquish that power voluntarily. [see: my previous tomes on the impossibility of Communist ideology]
We will see a series of state and local rebellions and revolts and possibly a civil war which will split the country into fascist and non-fascist governments. While this is happening, we will be cast into poverty, we will become vulnerable to foreign powers and organized crime, and former allies will become completely vulnerable to totalitarian/imperial powers and -isms. That’s the 1930s all over again, and millions of people are going to die, again.
Difference is … this time, there won’t be an America to come riding to the rescue.
The Dark Ages will return.
No, letting ‘em win is suicide.
It’s also an unforgivable betrayal of all those who sacrificed to save America before and to make America worth saving.
Winter is coming;
but so, I hope, is the American Spring.
By definition, half of ALL people have below average IQs. We need to be adults and plan for this unless we want to give up this Republic. We didn’t make the sale. So the Dems get to go home and fuck the prom queen this year.
Paul’s plan will make it obvious to even the marginally retarded that the Democrats own this disaster.
