Should Republicans Just Give Obama What He Wants?

Of course the Republicans should not simply get out of the way and let Barry Boy do whatever he wants. For those who haven't been paying attention, the latest trend in redistribution is the so-called "wealth tax" which proposes to tax NOT income, but net assets -- in effect charging people 1% or 2% or 3% based on the value of whatever they own -- cars, houses, stocks, cash, businesses, etc. Right now the talk is about taxing people with more than a million dollars -- but just you wait. The talk will swiftly slide down to those holding assets of three-quarters of a mil, half a mil, etc. This is the biggest redistribution plan in the world -- and anyone who thinks it is smart to give Barry Boy ANY leeway at all is a moron (in my opinion).

Carbon Tax!!!! WOW, nobamma would owe BIG $$$$ for that, flying all over H3LL with Air Foce One & all the planes that go with it !!!!!

What should conservatives make of this provocative post from "RB" at the Right Sphere, which basically counsels Congressional Republicans to just get out of the way and let Obama have his way on the fiscal cliff?  Though I have some fundamental quarrels with the premise, I must confess that RB's "let it burn" playbook is certainly appealing on some level:
 

I’ve been watching the negotiations – if you can call Republicans negotiating with themselves while Obama still hasn’t put a plan on the table “negotiating” – over the “Fiscal Cliff” for weeks and it’s time for...
