Should the GOP just step back and let the US fall off the Fiscal Cliff?

KCurtis 2012/11/09 00:46:33
I say, now that the loons are running the asylum, GOP should go for it. CBO says we are nearing the end of the cliff in just a short few weeks. John Boehner says tax hikes can't be passed in the house. The White House is not willing to come back with any sort of spending cuts that make survival even possible.

I say, time to call the Democrats bluff. It's all going to be blamed on the Republicans anyway. I went Galt already, giving up my consulting business and reigning in my living expenses because I don't want to fork over another dime for the Free Stuff the entitlement society that voted for Obama gets handed. Sorry charlie, I've made my fortune and I have the luxury of being able to live comfortably without earning any extra for you. So cry me a river when the rest of the 1% says the same, hey phuck off. You're on your own kid. I used to care, now I don't. Welcome to Greece.

So for me, I'm out of the market. My savings is in metal and stored conveniently, locally next to my Remington Home Defense shot gun. So I say go for it. Let's do the cliff. I'll be the one in the Titanium Bubble watching the grab team try to collect their pittance. Plus I can't wait to see the big babies; the Obama supporting moron vote realize ...
...wow - there's nothing left for me. Booooo Hooooo!
You!

    I know what you mean ..
    I've scaled back tremendously ..
    pulled out of the marketplace and have contracted my personal business as well ..
    I'm making sure that I can survive .. and live onwards ..
    and am SICK And TIRED of having my HARD WORK Redistributed ..

    (NOTICE all the LAYOFFS in such a SHORT TIME after the election too .. )
    There's FAR MORE LAYOFFS on the way too ..
    Businesses .. small, medium, large ..
    are all looking at their bottom lines ..
    and all the NEW taxes (including the taxes buried in that horror called ObieCare .. )

    and saying .. NO MORE ..
    Tapped out .. can't continue .. time for the Dependents to get OFF their backs ..

    I don't want us to go over a cliff we may not recover! We have to change our stategy not our core values, and next time we define ourselfs and not let the democrats do it for us. One of the biggest lies that kept comming up "Romney will take away your pills," and somehow we let them get away with it,and they did show me one thing, it's not about the economy stupid !

    Lets just go ahead and tumble off the cliff. You can only try to hold up a sinking ship for so long. Sink it, it has too many holes in it. It seems that many of us need the lesson anyways.

    Yes. The sooner this fiscal debacle ends with collapse , the better. Maybe congress and all the rest of government will simply leave the nation to go lok for work in EU and the middle east where alot of US tax dollars have as well. That way we could cut all ties with them and start all over and ensure better laws to keep capitalism going without the unethical participants ruling us and leading us to more of the same.

    Michael , of course we all noticed you did not answer. Your profile at this current time says you are a male, fifty years old, and christian. Obama claims he is a christian , too.

    And as well, how about Obama showing us all of his passports and travel records and university and college and high school and grade school transcripts and loan records as well as who supplied funds to pay for his Harvard experience? What grades did Obama earn while at any of those places? Exactly bhow many passports has Obama had ever and what were his named citizenships on any of them except his last most current one? ALL of them?

    Michael. Obama said McCain ( R-Az ) knew about his moslem faith . Hillary knew he is moslem. Obamas own wife stated his native country is Kenya which makes him NOT legaly our president. He himself has videos which prove he is not an American citizen. Foreign nationals claim Obama is a moslem Kenyan. So do many of his own relatives ( google ) .

    Romney is born legally in America by two legally married American born parents.

    Az courts publically rejected Obamas claimed birth certificate naming it a forgery ( HE LOST the court battle ) and his legal team is currently fighting in court to keep that false information Obamas legal team provided to a legal American c...

    Az courts publically rejected Obamas claimed birth certificate naming it a forgery ( HE LOST the court battle ) and his legal team is currently fighting in court to keep that false information Obamas legal team provided to a legal American court system from being used against Obama.

    Again, Michael. Who is Harrison J. Bounel? Why is Mrs. Obamas name affiliated with the name Harrison J. Bounel?

    Does American law mean anything to you , Michael? Are you an legal American citizen? I am and if I were ever to run for the presidency of the USA I would legally be eleigible without question.

    Romney already provided the info you are asking me about here. You must have missed it.

    Now it is your turn.

    Who is Harrison J. Bounel?

    It would please me to no end if the republicans would bow their necks and tell Obama and Ried to pound sand. They won't do it - they have short memories about all the times the dems told them to pound sand. We need someone to start bitch-slapping those sissy dems and make them do what we say or bitch-slap them again.

    Please, Do you believe he gave his inheritance to charity. I read your profile. You are a journalist. An investigative reporter. From a time of morals and honesty....and you really believe at face value that someone would give a fortune away? Someone who pillaged companies to make his money? I would expect someone like you to be skeptical and look for answers yourself. I guess you forgot how to do that. A shame.

    I didn't say anything about Romney being a racist so keep that race card in your deck. I hardly call a college, A University a charity, but if that's what you call it be my guest. A very wealthy University at that. Doesn't the Bible say

    Lets get real. The GOP is as responsible for the creation of the fiscal cliff as the libs. Lots of blame to share. Both parties failing at the local, county, state, national levels have mutually teamed to create this insanity and malfeasance of leadership.

    I say yes..Give them EVERYTHING they ask for. Only 2 things can happen from there.

    1. Everything gets better and we move on.
    2. Everything collapses and we rebuild while casting aside liberal ideas.

    Win win.
