And a lot of Tax Paying Americans sent Representatives to the House to act of their behalf! Get it Boner, Representatives to act on their behalf, now Man up! That's why there is a House of Representatives. What is it you don't understand? Oh, and did I call you a crybaby yet?

When's the last time that the House has stood up to Zero in a meaningful way? Boehner is subject to being replaced by a popular vote in the House, but how many "Representatives" are out there calling for that besides the ones who have already been purged? It would only take 16 to join up with Dems and block his nomination. Ryan signed off on his caving in. Bachmann's Tea Party Caucus site hasn't been updated in months. Has it occurred to you that a lot of the Republicans have sold out due to greed, power, and/or cowardice? Has it occurred to you that maybe we no longer have a representative federal government?

The Republicans are in an impossible situation. If they represent the Tea Party they will continue to loose Congressional seats. If they oppose the Tea Party they may lose seats as well.

Now that the Republicans are caving on tax rates for the "rich", Obama is pushing for authority to raise the debt ceiling himself, without Congress.

This shouldn't even be up for discussion. The Constitution gives power to the Congress to tax and borrow. Short of amending the Constitution, Congress cannot just grant this power to the President. This isn't a bargaining chip. It makes a mockery of our Constitution. :steamed:

We're screwed. *ha-ha*

Anyway, I don't see the Republicans standing up to Obama in any meaningful way. The ones who may have done so are being purged by the R leadership. They'll raise taxes on the "1%" (err the "2%"--I missed when that changed?). They'll raise the debt limit indefinitely. They'll then figure we need to make the 5%, then the 10%, then the 50% pay their "fair share" for the parasites, and...yeah.

Well, the currency will inflate more, buying power will decrease, standard of living will decrease, the parasites will get a few more drops of blood, and it'll crash.

I'll take the fiscal cliff now.

The WSJ gave a primer on how the R's could stand up to Obama and maybe get something reasonable. They won't do it. They'll cave (well, Boehner will). Everyone knows it.

I think it's crazy, but I'm starting to understand the idea of voting "present" only. The D's do need the political cover of R's signing off on tax increases- because they're going to hit everyone who actually pay taxes (the parasites love to vote for more tax-and-spend people though--free money!).

Boehner has to go. He is and always has been one of the big-government republicans. They have nothing against big government, they just want to be the ones in charge.

If the conservatives who've registered independent, libertarian, constitution, etc don't get back in the Republican party and start voting in the primaries, this is what we get. RINO candidates, and socialist Democrats winning. If the conservative candidates lose the primary, vote however you like, but you've got to get in the game.

The Democrats spent 3 1/2 years going to every welfare office and free clinic in the swing states, going door-to-door in the projects, and going to every inner-city neighborhood. They got all of those people registered. If they had mobility issues or multiple small children they signed them up for absentee ballots. For the last year they've gone through neighborhoods with high proportion democrat registration. They went door-to-door knocking on doors with registered democrats or people who were unregistered and offering them free bumperstickers and yard signs. If they were registered and wanted bumperstickers or signs, they made a note. If they were unregistered and wanted Obama materials, they registered them and made a note. If not, they left them unregistered. Once absentee ballots went out, they followed up, in person, with the people that they'd signed up for absentee voting. "Did you get your ballot? Have you sent it in? Let's fill it out now, I have a stamp for you." Once early voting opened, they went to the projects with vans and old buses from the black churches and loaded people up apartment by apartment and took them to vote. On election day, their people were in the precincts checking to make sure all those people that had taken signs and stickers voted. As the afternoon rolled around they where calling and door-knocking the ones that hadn't voted yet to get them in.

57% voter turn-out overall. The Democrats in their urban swing-state targets turned out numbers in the 80s and 90s. Figure out how the rest turned out to get us down to 57%. The big government Republicans won't learn, but they're only about 23-25% of the party. The problem is that so many conservatives have bailed that 23-25% is damn near a majority of what's left.
