    This is some advice to my "right wing" buds and Tea Partiers. From a libertarian that understands both sides.. And also a warning to my leftist buds as well..

    Here's a new plan. Give Pelosi/Obama/Reid EVERYTHING they want. Tax the literal crap out the rich. Destroy Soc Sec by making it unrecognizable as FDR's program. Go ahead and penalize corporations and businesses with the biggest govt clubs you can grab. Please PASS an onerous energy policy that saps more of our economy.. Defend that nebulous health care monstrosity that nobody can figure out. Stimulate the economy into a gigantic orgasmic orgy of success.

    They've got a year and half left. WHY OPPOSE the agenda? If WE (including me) believe that their policies would be a disaster -- let it play out. That's the scientific method. Give the American people a demonstration of the results. After all -- they DID have a mandate to govern.. And the American people legally mandated that choice.

    You KNOW what the result would be. Complete and utter destruction of Progressive/Socialist agenda in the United States for decades -- maybe ever.

    You would probably find out that the DEM party itself would put the brakes on. Like they did on the wars and Gitmo and any number of different fakey hissy-fits that have been thrown. It would end the postering and see if they REALLY TRUELY believe in what they constantly whine about.

    About 18 months of hell til a change can occur.. But man -- it's a century of progress for this nation if you did it....

    Yeah, Jimmy Carter knew what worked.

    So does Obama.

    That's why he'll get crushed like Carter.

    No, rolling over and taking it further up the ass doesn't sound like a good plan at all.

    What’s sad and telling about this thread is that it is indicative of the great partisan divide, of the unwillingness to compromise and work to find viable solutions to our Nation’s problems, and of the dogmatic zealotry predicated on a scorched earth philosophy.

    To advocate the ‘destruction’ of the United States as a means to destroy one’s enemies is inane.

    Give neither party ‘what it wants’ if it’s determined to be detrimental to the country; compel lawmakers to take a pragmatic approach to serve the needs of the American people, not partisan interests alone.
