...of a "reduction" in spending (really just a reduction in spending INCREASES) in "out years," while taxes are always increased immediately if not sooner (see above). The Republicans would have been "blamed" for this "impasse." So what? The Democrats will always have the MSM on their side. Why continue to play their "rope-a-dope?" The notion they "had to do something to move the process forward" is just asinine.

There are a few good men. And by “a few,” I mean five.

Certainly there are far more than five good men in America. But in the U.S. Senate, there are just five moral Republicans.

Who am I referring to? Let me introduce you to the five men in the Senate who stood their ground while their Republican peers (save two abstainers) voted for a fiscal cliff deal that essentially codifies theft:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Alabama), Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida), and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah).

I think conservatives and libertarians...
