As to the OP, yes, that progressive kiss my ring looter needs to go.
His are among the best posts on this board. Usually dead center. Take a few minutes and go read his blog.

I also notice that Bachmann, the leader of the Tea Party caucus, has not been purged from the Finance Committee (which just let Corzine off the hook). Is the supposed outsider faithfully or cowardly toeing the line?
Above all they want to maintain personal power.

A libertarian knows they don't know what is right for everyone so they allow people to make their own decisions as long as they respect the right of others to choose differently.

There is no truth beyond the fact that no one size fits all. Talking about issues like MJ are important because that while I don't care for it, I will fight to ensure those that want it are free to make their own choices just like those that don't want to do it.

I loathe the concept of communism too but as long as it isn't forced on me, people can buy land and live on a commune all they want.

Paul supporters knew the difference. The rest thought that supporting him would have been an endorsement of something other than liberty.

Conservatives, moderates or liberals... All just groups trying to push their beliefs onto someone else.

I agree when the content of his posts on this board is not a simple repeated insult. I never said anything to the contrary. And I do read his blog frequently.

If Boehner agrees to raise taxes, theres no further point to republicans in DC. Said as much.

We do not have a revenue problem we have a spending problem.

The purge of Tea Party oriented members has to stop--NOW.

Without the Tea Party, Boehner would not be speaker.

John Boehner is a feckless, gutless coward and spiteful against his own party to boot. We will not survive with him as leader.

We need a revolt before its too late.
Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it IS too late. The repubican party is dead. They have cooked their own goose......

I'm not sure what you're reading then. I don't see an insult to anyone but progressive republicans and neocon types. The 'conservative' is indicative of that. There are an awful lot of folks running around here who consider themselves strong conservatives who's posting history suggests they're anything but conservative.

Also, he hasn't updated his blog in quite a long time.

This simple sentence is the crux of the matter. Volumes have been written. It is a subject matter unto itself. And, most fundamentally, it is the entire point of fiat central banking.

Interestingly, many a Founding Father exhibited acute prescience in his warnings on this subject.

This 'stealth tax' is the lifeblood of statism- a predatory state cannot exist without it, cannot fund itself. And it is the antithesis of liberty.

It is also the least understood subject. As such, no challenge to the paradigm exists in the modern USA, rendering any change to the current economic or political dynamics impossible. Absent an understanding of fiat central banking, all other observations are either window dressing, or planned distractions.

I apologize to you, sir, if you found unnecessary rancor in my posts. That is not my intent. My sarcasm is tongue-in-cheek, mocking the absurdity of it all, with no malice intended.

That said, I must ask myself, when 'conservatives' "make a mistake and then change their minds after they realize that" repeatedly, over a period of years or even decades, when is it no longer a mistake? We must strive for pattern recognition if we are to understand modern political and economic dynamics. Only then can we hope to positively augment (or better, replace) the paradigm.

The alternative is to participate in, rather than challenge, kleptocracy.

But at the end of the day, it doesn't matter. These are just words. And what we do here is talk. Just like our politicians. The time for action is long passed, and our discussions are purely academic. We no longer hold, as a people, a philosophical commitment to, or even understanding of, liberty.

Horses@#%.

NO ONE ever stated that.

He was barely a few steps above Romney. He was a "he'll do for now" kind of guy…more of a placeholder, expected to hold the line if nothing else and nothing spectacular was ever expected of him.

The level of perfidy we've been hearing about in the past few days targeting tea-party driven house members is a new low. The worst I had heard previously was that he referred to hard liners as "knuckledraggers" which was obviously offensive but seemed to just reinforce him as less strident. That he actually took action against anyone on his own side is a new event that is beyond the pale.

No one here has EVER stated a preference for him and you're dishonest or short of memory to even suggest it.

This is why Obama won. I despise him and so does at least half the country. That said ©, I think Obama actually believes what he says as do his followers. He's a true believer, committed, strident, dogmatic, unwilling to compromise and brings his passion to an enunciated view that never waivers and speaks to it constantly. He knows he has lie occasionally and will stumble then, but he stays on message and that repeated hammering is what turns the weak, vacillating and envious over to his side.

We need a conservative leader who does not wilt but answers again loudly and repeatedly with conservatism as his first language because he knows it as truth. Who knows that only in polite society is it inappropriate to respond to the deceitful and boorish who lie, but that it is mandatory in public discourse with a knife wielding thug in the political arena.

Boehner sees everything thru the lens of his own survival and is clueless to why the other side won, but knows that they did and wants some of that win so is willing to compromise as though success might transfer. He's a government bureaucrat who wants perpetuate his position at any cost and is bereft of any true principle except self-preservation.

Yup.

The Republicans are so busy playing defense and trying to "make nice" with the Dems that they have become worthless sock puppets.

That, sir, is exceptionally well stated.

No doubt about it. If he caves and sells out to the democrats, why bother having a Republican party?

He definitely has to go.

The last thing we expect from him would be to go along with the America destroying democrat party.
