The GOP should let the economy fall off the “Fiscal Cliff” and not cave to Obama


The GOP needs to walk away from the table and fall off the Fiscal Cliff

The GOP needs to walk away from the table and fall off the Fiscal Cliff

The GOP needs to stand their ground, refuse to accept compromise and JUMP OFF THE FISCAL CLIFF.

AS Obama has been telling people the republicans are strangling the American people they are trying to force the GOP to accept their proposals no matter how bad they are to this economy. It has become apparent to some people that have not paid attention that Obama wants us to fall off the cliff, he has no intention to get the economy back on track. He has not done anything for business expect run them into bankruptcy, fire more people and shut down this economy. All we hear about is how the rich have to pay more in taxes, even though most reasonable economist will tell you higher taxes will NOT help.

Now Timothy Geithner, Treasury Secretary, wants to raise the debt ceiling without limits and do not have to account to congress for anything. In fact he just brought a plan to the last meeting with John Boehner, the House Majority leader, and it was divorced from reality, he proposed more spending than cuts than originally discussed and that infuriated the GOP. This will give the government a blank check to spend at will without limits or accountability to the American people. That will destroy the future of this country, that is Obama’s plan, to break Americans all in the name of “FAIRNESS”.

It is a fact that the rich have more than the poor, get over it, that has been this way since the dawn of time. Most people had to work to get the acquired wealth they have, only a small fraction of people inherent money or have a trust fund. Yet they are suppose to pay for all the people that refuse to work or scam the system. This is not how this country was founded. The main thing people have to realize is poor people do not hire the rich.

How many poor people have paid you for work, bought your house or car, NONE, yet they are the same people that pay the most in taxes. It has been proven that the rich pay 90% of the taxes, and the middle class pay the other 10%, so that leaves the other 50% of the nation do not pay any taxes at all. So who is the cheaters?

I know that poor people (like me) are not able to pay a lot in taxes, but the problem is not higher taxes, it’s a spending problem that Washington will not wake up from. You can tax all the rich people in America and that will run the government for a few weeks, after all they are spending 188 billion a day. the hour rate of spending is something like 120 million per hour, (not exact) but you get the idea. The GOP has a responsibility to keep the government in check, and if that means we have to fall off the cliff so be it.

Obama need to own this economy and history will prove he is on the wrong side of the American way of life.

Congress and the GOP need to walk away from the table and let this country Fall Off The Fiscal Cliff.

    Only a libtard will espouse such lies about people they know nothing about. So Mr. Tolerant (that is your party right?) how do you propose to “deal with” people that don’t agree with you point of view? I guess if your white and Christian your the problem? What a fucking racist you really are. But then again that is what the left really is… a bunch of racist lying idiots. I’m sure you have no idea what your talking about so please tell me the meds your on so I can tell people to avoid them at all cost, or do your get them from Obama care?

    I struck a nerve with my facts! How is it that your retarded rants keep proving my point! Not only are you a racist, but an illiterate Ass as well! You cancervatives with your heads stuck up your asses you think EVERYTHING you say is true! Now THAT’s narcissism!

    • December 23, 2012 at 4:18 am

      HAHA…You struck a nerve that is laughable.. I think you are the one whose nerve was struck. What obtuse point are you attempting to make or did you forget to make one AGAIN? So far you have no point only fallacies and verbal attacks that are very very weak. In fact my 14 year old boy makes more points than you can, how pathetic you really are. So you were unable to answer one question my nebbish libtard, How does the fag loving… God less party plan to deal with those who don’t want to suck dick like you do? All I can see is your pathetic attempt to lie about facts (naturally) and you call me narcissistic… Oh if that were only true I would sit around basking in my love for myself, but I digress to reality (unlike you). So when you get your so called facts together I will be right here to debunk your small minded, illiterate facts if that is what you want to call them. The last thing a libtard can do is rattle me, I know you people are freaks of nature, you have to admit taking a dick up your ass is just not natural, guess you must be use to it huh?

      I mean how can a person with a brain actually believe welfare is a good thing to enslave people into? Oh well get your food stamps while you can before Santa Claus, I mean Obamaclaus, takes them away from you, in fact you have a short time before all your Obama dreams crater into a socioeconomic depression. So run along little tard and enjoy your new tax rate your going to pay. When you grow up and your kids ask you what is freedom, you can say I forgot (or maybe you never even knew what it was to begin with?), but don’t worry socialism is better.. in fact it’s fair. Just one question, you have never had your own business before have you? I bet you always worked for someone else cause you have no backbone or intestinal fortitude to own one.

      Merry Christmas and God Bless You

    A dictionary would do you some good that’s for sure. Lets see Obamas dad was an anarchist, his mentors communist, and he is a socialist. Maybe you want to talk like you have a clue but it proves you obfuscate facts, or you just refuse to admit to them. So you say Obama has created more wealth, then why have property dropped 30%, personal income down 40% and on and on. I could go on all day but I have another post to write and wasting time with you is not really worth it. You should review your Obama talking points and walk outside and talk to real people, if your capable oh holding an intelligent conversation without indignation and fallacy.

    As excepted, you wouldn’t know a socalist from a fascist! Not to mention you don’t know what to agrue! I posted facts and resort to repeating the same debunked BS!

    Funny you ignore the speeches by ACTUAL socialist due to the fact that that THEY who eat, sleep, breath socialism knows Obama’s not one of them!

    It isn’t about evidence. It is about trying to scare people.

    Obama is a liberal, not a socialist

    • December 13, 2012 at 12:05 am

      The only things scary about you is you manners. Facts mean nothing, stats are skewed, the basic conversation you can go is blame it on Bush. You party wants to Ban Christmas and Christians, fags are normal, and free speech scares the hell out of yall. Your the most intolerant group of thugs that debase anyone or anything that is opposed to your point of view. It’s either accept my way or else we will not stop bitching and crying like babies. My vocabulary would smoke you ass, not to mention I know I’m more well rounded than you will ever be, and I don’t mean fat. Grow up.

    As Qaddafi called your messiah, “Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama,” admitted in 1998 that: “I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make sure that everybody’s got a shot.”

    That is socialism. Obama is a socialist.

    It’s offical! ALL the commentators are the biggest racists in American History.

    Anyone who Hate Barack Obama are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obama a pig are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obama a thug are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obama a wannabe dictator are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obam evil are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obama a Narcissist are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obama a enemy of America are Anti-American hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obama a criminal are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obama a communist are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obama a marxist are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who calls Obama a dictator are hateful Racist!
    Anyone who Hate Barack Obama are Racist! Plain and Simple!

    Here are the REAL facts! There are NO Patriots here, just angry hateful racist, bigot hate-mongers with no right to call themselves Americans but in the same breath say they hate the President! And you wonder why you lost the election? it’s because we do NOT want America to be run by racists!
    I’ve had enough! From now on! I’m standing up to you racist assholes! That’s what you are! I’m sick of you racist sore losers insulting me and other Americans for NOT voting White and giving you your lily white America back! That’s too freaking bad!
    I’m sick of you racist asshole insulting the President and calling yourself Americans?!?! Please! You are NO American! You are NO Patriot! You are nothing more than a angry, bitter, a bad loser, bigoted, homphobic, racist asshole!
    Is Barack Obama a traitor to America because of the events in Benghazi? NO but it was a horrendous mistake…..President Johnson did something similar

    Is Barack Obama a terrorist? NO

    Is Barack Obama a Marxist? NO… he has socialist leanings but not a Marxist

    Is Barack Obama “illegal” and what does that mean? He is “legal”….Congress said so and they are the arbitrar
    Is Barack Obama an evil man? NO….incompetent but not evil

    Is Barack Obama a communist? NO

    Is Barack Obama a dictator? NO

    Does Barack Obama hate America? NO

    Does Barack Obama want to Go Over the Fiscal Cliff? NO…..Like most is Washington DC…I doubt he appreciates the significance of that event

    Is Barack Obama a racist/bigot? No more than normal….. everyone is a racist…..it is a matter of degree…. as to being a bigot…..bigot only means you hold strong beliefs…..it has nothing to do with racism per sec

    Is Barack Obama Anti-American? NO

    Is Barack Obama a Muslim? NO ….he is what he says he is. And your racist fear-mongering, hate-mongering BS is the reason why you lost the election!
    You lost because you a hateful racist asshole that hate having a minority leave the country. It’s obvious you believe blacks only belong on the streets, not in the oval office!
    You RWNJs always spout, unjustifiably so, that “Obama hates America” yet have no problem with a party that wants the country to fail, so that it can regain the presidency? And what’s with this tax and spend nonsense? Bush had to borrow to pay for his 2 unnecessary wars, tax cuts and increased medicare costs but that was okay with you? It used to be that both parties got along for the benefit of the country, now the GOTP only wants their way or no way, for the good of the party and the country be damned, so who’s power hungry?
    Honest to almighty father, I was right. Anyone who Hates Barack Obama do so because he’s Black!

    • December 1, 2012 at 3:10 am

      The truth hurts huh obama is a socialist his dad taught him that maybe if you got off your ass and researched the facts you would know what your talking about instead of sounding like a DRONE that has no clue. Then again I don’t expect a flaming liberal idiot to have that much insight to have critical thinking. And your comments are as stupid as you are, so are you black? Does Obama want to go off the fiscal cliff, you already answered my question when you agreed he is a socialist. Was the country founded on socialism? No you idiot it was based on Christian values. And how many blacks come out and pull the race card. I can tell you all the ones that are liberal. Do you know who Allen West is and what he stands for? I do. Do you vote on skin color or policy. Be sure and read more of my stuff maybe you will be educated instead of a brainless, bitter tawpie that prevaricates facts. Thats what I like about you liberals, you will paint a person to whatever you want them to be in your petty little brain to fit your agenda, even if your wrong you like to convince yourself your right. You have the right to your own opinion but not the facts..dork..

        Thanks for proving my point! The Republican rhetoric about President Obama and the private sector is so common, it no longer surprises: the White House has an “anti-business” agenda, the argument goes, which undermines private enterprise.

        And yet, we continue to see new evidence all the time that Obama is the Worst Socialist Ever. The New York Times reported yesterday, “United States corporate profits reached a record high in the third quarter of this year, even adjusted for inflation, according to a report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis.”

        …[P]ost-tax corporate profits collapsed when the economy crashed in 2008, but then sharply improved after Obama became president, reaching their highest point ever this fall.

        It’s against this backdrop that the right still complains bitterly that the president is a radical socialist who says mean things about “job creators.”

        President Obama has never claimed to be a Socialist.

        I don’t know what point you’re trying to make with that other crap but whatever!

    • December 1, 2012 at 3:23 am

      That’s what I like about you flaming liberals idiots that have no clue about the facts. You have the right to your own opinion but not your own facts. Obama is a socialist, his dad was an anarchist, his mentors were communist. That is a fact. Maybe if you got off your ass and did some research you would know the truth and not act like an Obama drone that has no clue. Do I care if your gay and like to take it up the ass, no, but don’t force me to accept your way of life. Don’t take away nativity scenes because your atheist and hate GOD, that is your problem. Don’t take away my freedom or right to have my opinion cause it does not fit your narrative. Don’t ask me to pay for your birth control since you are unwilling to. Don’t ask my kids to pay for the debt this president wants to shove on their heads because he wants a blank check to raise the debt without any accountancy. Don’t tell me you are for the poor when liberalism keep poverty soaring even though years of paying billions have not fix the problem, in fact it has only worsened. Do you have a freaking clue what you even say? Are you black and vote on skin color not policy? Do you know who Allen West is or what he stand for? Let me guess you get your news from Comedy Central in the form of Jon Stewart on the Daily Show…. idiots like you have nothing to say but talking points, prevarications of facts, and act like angry tawpie children that need to be in a time out. Hell better yet you need a spanking and sent to your room without supper…

      Nice rant. First of all, it isn’t the color of his skin that is the problem. He is HALF WHITE for God’s sake! So keep your race card and your racism in your back pocket for a while. It is the lack of content of his CHARACTER that is what is in question. MLK, a REPUBLICAN, said something similar to that.

      Second, you cannot PROVE anything you typed. Your messiah’s records are SEALED which leas to… What is he hiding? And he thrives on that. Put the race card down, Farrakhan was the first one to call Baraka the messiah. NOT the conservative right wing. We only refer to him sarcastically.

      Third, because you have been edumicated in a liberal public indoctrination station and got ripped off, let me set history straight for you when it comes to EXACTLY WHOM wants blacks in the streets. This is going to be longer than your rant, but this will be FACTUAL. If it were not for the republican party, Barry wouldn’t be more tan one fifth of a man, never mind a representative of southern, white, democrat RACISTS. The republican party was founded because f the REJECTION of SLAVERY and the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854. Edumicate yourself and goo-goo it. Here are the FACTS of Democrats and Civil Rights. As the last sentence says, empower yourself and learn the TRUTH. And keep that race card in your back pocket.

        Dang I feel like I had a history lesson. So why is it blacks vote democrat? They must not know any of this stuff. I already knew the GOP helped blacks and that is why I am pissed off they don’t know or want to know the facts and support the very party that has oppressed them. If I were racist then I wouldn’t promote the Black man from Florida Allen West (a real American hero) as well as I do. I use the race card to inject the venomous, caustic language as the racist blacks do for one reason, to spark controversy. That is how people are shaken up. Anger is not always a bad thing it creates dialog, may not always be good but it’s a start. I am not racist, but I do find myself sinking into that pit because I hate ignorance. I may not be a history buff like you, I do know what i see and hear, and the fact are best laid out as I know them at the time. Thanks for writing this, some will read it and hopefully it will resonate with the intellectual handicapped.

        No! First of all Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt, it’s the right’s best friend. I know Obama is half white and I know you losers ONLY use that argument to defend your racist tirade!

        Second of all! You racist still don’t get it. Obama’s records are NONE of your business. Give me Reagan’s , give me Carter! Not a single President was forced to released their records, but then again, Not a single President was demeaned by the racist right!

        And third of all! Abraham Lincoln was a Republican, but he was also a Liberal. It’s about philosophy, not party. Democrats of the past were conservatives who protested civil rights and fought for segregation, however the Democratic party of today is Liberal. In essence, we need to put away the party labels and look at the philosophies of the people themselves. There has been sort of a role reversal over the years. When we look at political parties, we need to be like Janet Jackson and ask “What have you done for me lately?”

        What your nonsense fails to take into account is that, while there is no doubt that prior to the Civil Rights revolution of the 1950s and 1960s the Republican party WAS the party that actually cared about human rights, it was that very revolution that drove the ignorant racist corporatist America haters into the welcome arms of the Republican party where they have made a nice home for themselves ever since. Strom Thurmond, racist, segregationist and “slave f**ker” extraordinaire led the migration in 1948 when he ran for President on a platform of “segregation now, segregation forever”, and the migration of the racists further and further to the Right has continued unabated ever since. The delusional racist “birthers” are merely the latest manifestation of this ugly “movement”, and the corporate created teabaggers are merely the embodiment of the worst kind of ignorant “I don’t care if America fails, i just can’t live with a black guy in the White House” mentality. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. Teddy Roosevelt was a Republican. But both of these Progressive Leaders would be as appalled at the ignorant, hateful racist rhetoric that is the core of Republican “philosophy” as are all of us who are sane human beings.

      Biggest racists in history? Let’s just see about that. Who said:

      1: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy, I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

      2: Obama is a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect unless he wants to have one.”

      3: “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee, the only reason you are endorsing him is because he’s black. Let’s just be clear.”

      4: “The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating. You know better than Obama does.” “Obama is incompetent and does not know how to be president.” “Barack Obama is an amateur. The country needs you! The country needs us!” “Loyalty is a joke, loyalty doesn’t exist in politics.”

      5: “I’ll have those niggers voting Democrat for the next 200 years.”

      6: “This guy, he was catapulted in on hope and change, what we hope the guy is. What the fuck? Everything he’s saying’s on the teleprompter. I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up.”

      7: “If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman of any color, he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”

      8: “There was just an AP article posted that found how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.”

      9: “But she is a typical white person who, you know, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, you know, there’s a reaction that’s been bred into our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way. And that’s just the nature of race in our society. We have to break through it and what makes me optimistic is you see each generation feeling a little bit less like that. (Except this fool is feeding the fire of racial division!)

      10: “where white folks’ greed runs a world in need,” (The Great Uniter?)

      11: “I still want to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks.”

      12: “I’ve had a great relationship. In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

      13: “There are white niggers”

      Now questionman(? I cannot see the full username), you do your homework. Learn who the REAL racists are.

        There is no doubt that race relations in America has been severely
        divided and damaged. Blacks against Whites, Whites against Blacks, Asians
        against Hispanics, etc…. You get it.

        Like I said, Race Relations in America was actually thought to be
        better after Barack Obama became President, but I knew better. I said racism
        was on the rise, but whiny a-holes from the right attacked me for it. So
        anyway, who or what is the cause of this National racial divide?

        Is it President Obama’s fault? President Obama couldn’t be blamed
        for the current state of the country, etc. So the right was finally able to
        blame something on him, like many other things, that weren’t his fault.

        From my favorite right-wing site, Outside the Beltway. These guys
        rock:

        “Just about a year ago, a controversy was making its way through the conservative
        blogosphere that arose out of an incident at a Philadelphia, PA
        voting place on Election Day 2008 where two men representing something called
        the “New Black Panther Party”” were standing outside purporting to
        intimidate voters while a Fox News Channel camera recorded the whole thing. The
        incident was investigated by the Department of Justice and, before Barack Obama became President, the
        decision was made not to pursue criminal charges in the matter. The matter
        eventually made its way to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights where Abigail
        Thernstrom, a Republican member of the Commission, called the case “small potatoes” while others
        on the right attempted to turn it into a huge scandal.

        The controversy mostly died out when the Summer of 2010 ended and
        people began focusing on the election, but Rick Hasen at Election Law Blog
        notes that there was a final report issued by the DOJ back in March
        and it turns out that the whole story really was much ado about nothing:

        (1) the original NBPP controversy really was small potatoes, as Abby Thernstrom and Jonathan Adler concluded. This was a tiny
        incident in a single polling place about which there was no proof of a single
        intimidated voter.

        (2) Jonathan thought the decision to narrow the injunction after
        obtaining the default judgment did not make sense, but the OPR gives plausible
        reasons for why DOJ leadership did so—reasons about the scope of injunctions
        and First amendment rights which seem very strong to me as a teacher of
        Remedies.

        (3) Whether we should call DOJ’s subsequent actions a “cover-up”
        as Jonathan says or not, DOJ certainly did a very poor job explaining its
        actions. And it is only from the OPR report that one can get a clear sense as
        to the bona fide dispute among those at DOJ over how to handle the case.

        (4) The decision of how to handle the controversy does provide a
        window into the shift between the Bush and Obama administrations over how to
        handle claims of voting rights violations against non-minority voters. The DOJ
        has limited resources and needs to prioritize. Cases like NBPP and the Ike
        Brown case in Mississippi (as well as NVRA cases requiring cleaning up
        of voter rolls) were of greater priority to the Bush Administration than to the
        Obama administration.

        (5) Some on the right hoped to use the controversy over NBPP to
        paint the Obama DOJ as politicized and to make a scandal out of a legitimate
        difference in opinion over DOJ prosecutorial priorities and prosecutorial
        discretion. I was amazed to learn that FOX News had 95
        segments on the NBPP issue in little over a two week period. J.
        Christian Adams, Big Government, Hans von Spakovsky, and Pajamas Media-along
        with the Republican-leaning commissioners on the Civil Rights Commission (aside
        from Thernstrom)—sought to make as much political hay out of the incident as
        they could.

        But in the end, there’s no there.”

        But that doesn’t the racist right from falsely blaming President
        Obama for the racial divide THEY caused!!! They couldn’t successfully
        blame the President for the massive debt their party caused, so they got to
        blame him for something. P.S. That Black Panther case was the right’s only case
        of Obama causing racial divide among Americans. But since the case was noid and void under Bush….yeah…

        But…how else has Obama set back race relations? Let’s count the
        way:
        ■During
        his campaign, he suffered through racist rants and attacks from the racist
        right!! (http://www.splcenter.org/blog/2008/02/20/racist-attacks-on-obama-growing-more-heated/)
        ■When he
        was elected, Some white assaulted blacks as a retaliation towards the
        President’s victory ( http://articles.nydailynews.com/2008-11-15/news/17911016_1_teens-baseball-bat-staten-island)
        ■The
        number of hate groups, sadly including the tea party movement rose to 58
        percent since the year 2000 (http://articles.cnn.com/2009-02-26/us/hate.groups.report_1_hate-southern-poverty-law-center-groups?_s=PM:US)
        ■President
        Obama has constantly getting racist e-mails and death threats, more than any
        other president in history. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/5967942/Barack-Obama-faces-30-death-threats-a-day-stretching-US-Secret-Service.html)
        ■The insurmountable
        list of racist tea party signs and rants that those with a brain, unlike that
        brain-dead troll, Robert, knows exist. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/04/16/10-most-offensive-tea-par_n_187554.html
        or a Google search will work!)
        ■Nonstop
        Racist comments all major websites like the blaze, American Stinker, etc., and
        thank God someone if posting them like me. (http://viletweets.com/)
        ■The Rise
        of racist groups such as the “Birthers”.
        ■Racist
        pictures and e-mails against the President and First Lady (Google)
        ■Racist
        blogs like idiots4obama, yussefucker, whatever his name is.

        You know, the right has proven their racism not only towards
        Obama, but to the black community. They insult African-Americans’ intelligence
        every day because they are the majority of groups that voted for Obama, and
        these assholes want the blacks to vote for them? And their weak, tired claim of
        racism is that because over 95 percent of blacks voted for Obama because he’s
        black, they are the racists. But what about the people who didn’t vote for
        Obama because he was black? Are they not racist? What about the people who
        voted for Obama/Biden because as far left as the two of them are, they’re still
        closer to center than the combo of McCain/Palin.

        The right’s latest attempt is hiding behind actual black
        conservatives like Allen West, Herman Cain, etc. But these CONS are only using
        them as scapegoats and shields to hide their racism behind, but to mention they
        like them because they think like white conservatives, thus given the name
        “House Negro” or “Uncle Tom” because they believe if blacks
        don’t think like them, that means they want to be slaves to the government forever.

        It’s not Obama’s fault that there are racists on the internet who
        are constantly on

        the attack. The people who are setting us back 20 years are those who can’t
        handle the fact that we have a black man as POTUS.

        To think we’ll have to put up with this bullshit of racists pulling the reverse
        race card and the denial card is crazy. Well, I think not. No, Obama is not
        Marxist. No he has not set back race relations 60 years. No I don’t think the
        world is coming to an end.

        Barack Obama has NOT set back race relations, The racist, bigot
        right-wing of America set back relations, and what’s more successful than that?
        They successfully managed to pin the damage they caused to racial unity on
        President Obama, like they do everything else
