The plan is to go over the cliff and blame the other party. Lets face it budget cuts aren't going to happen and taxes need to be raised, there ae not enough rich people to get the needed revenue from. The parties will play politics until the nation crumbles.

I know what you mean. People get nervous when the principles of the founding of this nation are brought up, be it in our schools, churches or public discourse. There is a general sense that it isn't an allowable topic and perhaps the complacency of the public is such that they are comfortable with requirements of a free society.

Unhinged radical leftist thought goes on every-time they lose an election and often act out on it. Yet things go back to "as usual". What's wrong with regrouping with everything on the table when what we had on the table last time didn't work

About That Fiscal Cliff

The fiscal cliff is only politics as usual. The politics of blame, even though both sides know that tax increases are inevitable, and spending will go on and the cliff of fiscal disaster will arrive eventually and it will ultimately be bushes fault. But do not fear for Obama will save us.

They want the "fiscal cliff" named by Bernanke to go through to mask the real effects if obamacare. The real threat to the economy.

I always say money is not a measure of wealth assets are. What makes a nation wealthy is production and we are not doing that, that is why we are broke. It isn't the paycheck you get that stimulates the economy it is the work you do to earn it. Paying 50 guys to dig 50 holes and then paying 50 others to fill them in again has made nobody wealthier, only waisted money that benefitted nobody.
Conservatives need to set their own agendas and declare their own positions. This past election cycle has been completely defined by the left. Even on the debates, Obama spent more time defining Romney's position on things than he did his own. To do this is to buck against the media overall. That is not an easy task. I see it all the time, the media sets the position of a conservative candidate and every ounce of energy is spent by the campaign to fight it. Is it a battle that can be won? Perhaps, but a different strategy must be used. A conservative candidate needs to set the tone early on.

I am honored that you would mimic my identity. I must be bad for your agenda. I feel encouraged to post more often as the results of doing so must be effective. Thank you.

Could Ronald Reagan Get Elected Today?

There are some problems with the tea party, it is on its surface, new, but really it's just plain and ordinary citizens, maybe a bit old fashioned, some a bit odd some on the fringe, but most are just fed up with the status quo that is running this country off a cliff. Not the one everybody is talking about now, if anything the tax increases and spending cuts will postpone the real cliff we're heading for. Unfortunately, those in office will not accept 9 parts budgets cuts to 1 part tax increase. A 90% compromise in our favor is something I would take every time. Not accepting that was foolish and everyone sees that.

Reagan would certainly be elected again, because he could explain his views simply and straightforward, without sounding like he's in a boardroom. I can see no republican in the wings who can articulate the conservative view. We need someone who can communicate, not a specific gender or race.
