The problem is a majority of Americans want more government spending, not less. GOP refuses to attack that attitude directly (it is hard work of course) so instead try to use tax rates/debt ceiling as levers. As we have seen time and again, that doesn't work; when push comes to shove Americans are more afraid of reduced govt spending.

Those who are lazy and indolent and have been conditioned to be 100% dependent on the 'gub'mint' dole should not be allowed to vote. It's as simple as that. Also, it has turned out to be an absolute mistake to have given 18-year-olds the vote in 1971, via the 26th Amendment, as that age group, especially in more recent years, have become ever more gullible, impressionable and easily manipulated thanks to the Communist-leaning "educational" system (both schools and colleges).
The reason President Obama and Republicans can't come to an agreement on the fiscal cliff negotiations is that they don't share the same goals. This is also the key to understanding why President Obama appears far less worried about going over the cliff.

Republicans are focused on restoring the nation's financial health by promoting economic growth and reducing our horrendous deficits and debt. President Obama's primary aim is to complete his project of fundamentally transforming America.

I ask you loyal Democrats to please consider these things. Obama has demonstrated almost no concern for our crushing debt or deficits -- at least not since...
