    Aside from the fact that to the left, "compromise" means "do what we want", the last thing I want government to do is agree.

    Every time I hear someone say "let's get together on both sides of the isle to work on the problems facing this country" I just want to punch them in the face.

    Government is not the solution to any problem. Just get the government out of the fucking way! When politicians get together, government NEVER gets out of the way.

    I am ready for America to move forward in bold brush strokes and colors.

    Time to let the Fiscal Cliff materialize. Afterall, it was the 'compromise' of a couple years ago that allowed the topic to be ignored until after Obama was re-elected.

    Great stuff.

    Don't bend an inch, not a freakin' inch, no matter what.

    It's worked so well so far.

    Seems the republican ideology these days is more important than the future of the country. Because you would rather put your own petty differences above the good of the people.

    You would rather see the world burn than not agree with you.

    Is that the platform the new party runs on?

    Democrats got 50.3% of the total vote in House elections. Republicans only held the House because they had so thoroughly gerrymandered it in the 2010 redistricting, and because the advantages of incumbency are heaviest in the House.

    Think about that, before you declare how the House Republicans need to set off on an extremist crusade.

    Enough with the self- righteous BS. It's Obama and the dumbocrates that haven't worked with conservatives.

    Boy, no kiddin', all those "pledges" being signed by the Democrat candidates were hilarious. And the way those Democrats admitted they wanted to make Obama a one-term President, holy crap, that was amazing. And when the Democrats said they wouldn't accept one dollar in taxes for TEN dollars in spending decreases, wow, they really jumped the shark on that one.

    Too funny. Those Democrats are CRAZY!
