Because when it goes wrong the Dems and liberal media will spin it so that the Repubs are at fault. And the morons that voted for Obama will of course beleive it.

Yup. That's exactly what I'm saying. The Looters outnumber the laborers and the parasites outnumber the producers. The majority of Americans don't want liberty and economic prosperity, they want to live off those of us who do.

You may think the Leviathan worth saving. I don't.

Announcing that the GOP is going to give the Dems everything they want is the only way that:

1) they'll get on the daytime shows
2) they'll get to speak without interruption

If we work with them, it'll burn, if we don't work with them, it'll burn. Either way, Republicans get the blame for every failure unless we capitulate completely and give the Democrats all the credit for every product Congress produces.

Higher taxes. Check.
Profligate spending. Check.
$20T in debt. Check.

Heck, the GOP should pass a bill which confiscates all wealth over a million dollars. Yeah, the Dems will accuse us of not "being serious", but at this point who gives a damn what the Democrats think of us? This country is going straight down the sh!thole with the Dems in charge or we can perpetually circle the drain by continuing to fight them.

The Phoenix only rises from ashes. Let this mutha burn.
