My advice to “fiscal conservatives”

You guys are fine, I suppose, so long as you agree to support moderate Republican candidates who spend compassionately, and so long as you stop whining like bitchy little Hobbits about debt ceiling increases and compromises on principle that move the country leftward by institutionalizing a Marxist class dynamic of punitive taxation.

Shed that puristy cloak of fail.  Join team electability.  Get on board for the big win!

  7. Selfish bastards. Running out of money like that.

  8. Trust me, JG, I know.

  9. Jeff,
    That’ll be a tough sell with a media determined to squash that message. Did you know government creates jobs just to give people Obama phones?

    And Sandy was actually God’s way of giving us global warming deniers a kick in the head and Obama a much-needed distraction to hold on to the White house.

  10. Whereas, since the close of the last war, the British parliament the President, Congress and Supreme Court, claiming a power, of right, to bind the people of America by statutes in all cases whatsoever, hath, in some acts, expressly imposed taxes on them, and in others, under various presence’s, but in fact for the purpose of raising a revenue, hath imposed rates and duties payable in these colonies in these States, established a board of commissioners, with unconstitutional powers, and extended the jurisdiction of courts of admiralty the Third Article, not only for collecting the said duties, but for the trial of causes merely arising within the body of a county: […] “

  11. In an absolute sense, perhaps this is the best route to smaller government. Hell we may end up with no government at all.

  13. Money for Nothing

    Seemed somewhat apropos.
