    Should Republicans agree to Tax Increases.....and commit political suicide?

    According to Obama-Pelosi-Reid and just about every Democrat in Washington to the liberal commoners here at DP.......Republicans should just agree to Tax Increases.......and commit political suicide.

    Coming just a little over 8 months since Nov. 2,2010--The Largest Political Ass Whooping in History........if you were an elected Republican in Washington.....would you agree to raise taxes and commit political suicide?

    I don't know any Republican or Tea Party member that was elected to go to Washington for the purpose of helping The Kenyan Tyrant and Democrats continue their evil ways........

    ........they were elected to stop The Kenyan Tyrant and the Democrat's hair brain agenda.......they were elected to cut spending.......they were elected to stop an ever growing ever expanding Liberal Nanny State Government. Not one of them promised to go to Washington and Raise Taxes........and if they do.....chances are they wont be going back come 2012.

    I voted no. Whether or not it is political suicide I have no idea.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    The Republicans look bad either way, which is one reason why Obama is pressing his advantage; if they give in, they look bad to their base, if they don't give in, they look bad to independents.

    In the end they'll 'probably' give in, as independents are more valuable than the base.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    And don't forget reasonable conservatives and Republicans. Its alright, I understand if you don't know what I'm talking about, you probably don't associate with the likes of *shudders* reasonable people.

    I'm curious, do you actually believe the things you say? Because if you do....wow...

    Haven't you heard? Obama isn't Kenyan. He is an alien from Mars, who is here to spread propaganda, weaken the military, and generally destroy the country.

    Have you ever been in the real world? Your silly little political absolutes have no place in them, and if you insist they do, too bad.
