The best way to destroy this country is to drastically cut our defense so our enemies can walk all over us. The second best way to destroy us is through our older folks. Cut their social security benefits so they will die off faster and simply give up to the slave masters. This will trickle down to their children who will see the handwriting on the wall for themselves in the not too far distant future. The economy will sink just like the Titanic sank... and just about as fast! We desperately need to change our voting laws to eliminate the vote for all who pays less than a 20% tax rate. By doing this you will take a way the incentive of the unscroupous politicians of buying votes. They will have to appeal to the workers.

Free enterprise will always exist, even if it is made illegal, such as what hppened in Russia under the Bolshevicks. In a year or two, someone with a gun will break into your house and rob you of your food while ignoring your worthless money. As proof I offer the United States in WWII under FDR's rationing programs. Those with good jobs and the right aquaintences never had to do without. Bootleggers were smuggling sugar into the U.S. like cocaine and heroin are smuggled in today. Viva la revolucion.

Back country yahoo troll. Just who the bloody hell is in a position to "walk all over us"? Hmmm? Russia? Its navy rusts at anchor and the army has only ONE deployable airborne division. China? The 7th Fleet can take out their entire navy in 48 hours. North Korea? Be afraid of hobgoblins under your bed first.

Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio wowed the Beltway conservatives last night, which is a little bit like the British cheering a successful evacuation from Dunkirk. The GOP indeed lives to fight another day, and that day will be here quickly as 2014’s candidates are already declaring –Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito for the United States Senate in West Virginia and former Governor Michael Rounds for the same in South Dakota.

Which weights the negotiations over the fiscal cliff with a great deal of political as well as economic significance. The parties purport to care about the latter, but they are...
