Slash taxes and liberal spirits

I am so not ready to spread holiday cheer.
Egg Nog is a perfect metaphor for liberals because they are disasters from the day they become eggs to the day they develop fully (de)formed noggins.
I have never seen such a bunch of imbeciles. They get angry when they lose, and for some reason get even angrier when they win. They can’t even tell the difference anymore.
I have often compared liberals to Palesimians because they only want to negotiate when they lose. They would destroy everything if they thought it would bring victory. Conservative Republicans are like Israel. Every time they are about to win, for some reason they surrender. It is hard to refer to liberals as French when we on the right are the ones celebrating defeat.
So yes, this tax “compromise” being floated by Barack Obama needs to be blown to kingdom come.
Take this deal and kill it. Drive a stake through its heart so that it never sees the light of day.
The only thing I want to slash more than taxes is liberal spirits. I want them crushed on this issue, beaten (verbally and politically for those who fail to see that the true violence in this country is on the left) into submission.
Even Bubba Clinton realizes that Krauthammer knows everything. He just couldn’t admit it while in office. I will as a private citizen admit that Clinton is no dummy.
Let me spell it out for the left.
You are a cancer. You will not be happy until everything is destroyed and nothing exists. Until every Republican and conservative is wiped off the face of the Earth, you will not be satisfied. As I said, even Palesimians admire your suicide bomber skills.
Now for the deal itself. It is a victory for Democrats.
I understand that in any compromise, there will be something to bother everyone. I would have been ok with a straight up trade of extending the Bush tax cuts for everybody for an increase in unemployment benefits, with nothing else.
Yet the right does not understand the depth of hatred the left has for the “wealthy.” The left claims that they are fighting for middle class tax cuts. This is a lie. They are fighting to the death for the right to raise taxes on some people. They call Republicans “hostage takers” and “terrorists” (while ironically sharing verbal smoochies with Iranian leader Armageddonijad, a real terrorist who took American hostages), yet it is the left engaging in their typical scorched Earth tactics.
The left wanted to make the right spit blood. They threw in a trillion dollars of social spending. They hate tax cuts because that interferes with spending on social programs. The left is totally uninterested in deficit reduction. They don’t care if anything gets paid for. They do not object to spending, provided it is the right (in their case left) kind of spending. Obamacare proves this.
Conservatives (not Republicans, but conservatives) truly do want to cut spending. They truly and correctly believe that tax cuts pay for themselves, while social programs do not.
There is one thing that I do have in common with the left.
I am prepared to fight to the political death over tax cuts.
Those following my blog know that plenty of fights find me either tacitly supporting the party line, or staying on the sidelines altogether. Two issues get me to the point where blood drips from my fangs. I am a supply-sider and a Neocon. Cut taxes and kill terrorists. I will not yield on these two issues. I would rather lose than surrender.
It will be difficult for Republicans to walk away from a deal they agreed to, but perhaps the left will once again miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity and immolate themselves by blowing up this deal by getting greedy.
Holding out for a better deal is always risky, but I believe the Republicans should take this gamble.
(The left fought initial welfare reform. The right won the congressional elections and brought a much more conservative bill. Clinton vetoed it twice. While the third bill was less conservative than the first Gingrich bill, it was much more conservative than what the left initially fought. Republicans must apply this lesson to taxes. Clinton saved his job by not vetoing the bill a third time. The same pressure must be applied to Barack Obama, who would happily shove the left under a bus to get reelected.)
We will have a large majority come January. There is no reason to agree to a deal now. Outside of Israel and Republicans, when does the winning side ever have terms dictated to them by the losers? Why does the Pelosiraptor have any say whatsoever in anything? She should be sitting in a nursing home rambling incoherently to her shuffleboard partners about why somebody somewhere thinks she matters. Her head is so far up her hide that when the Botox was done, the doctor did not need to remove anything. It was already there. She has zero right to tell anybody what to do, and that gavel needs to be ripped out of her hands so hard it makes her palms bleed.
Yes, I know I am more hostile than usual. Tax arguments have that effect on me.
I am perfectly fine with only having a two year extension. I would love to have this argument in 2012. I am itching for a political street fight on taxes. I believe we Republicans win that argument every time.
Yet if we hold out, we can pass a much more conservative tax bill and force President Obama to either veto or sign it. We fracture his coalition.
This current bill provides enough stimulus (by any other name still not a sweet smelling rose) to temporarily help the economy. It reelects Barack Obama while making Republicans look like liars to the Tea Party people who want the budget to face a machete, not a scalpel. Republicans have one last chance to keep their word. If we blow this, we are done.
The left thinks that the threat of taxes going up will give the GOP a public relations problem. This is not true, since the GOP can reverse the damage rather quickly. They can pass a conservative bill, and if Mr. Obama vetoes it, he is the villain. I know the media despises Republicans, but I would rather we make half the country angry than back down and lose our own side and have everyone hate us like we did in 2006. If we do not stand for tax cuts, we are worthless.
That is why the entire discussion should enrage conservatives. Democrats are trying to raise taxes, and Republicans are not trying to cut them. Republicans are merely trying to not raise them.
I want to shove a conservative bill down liberal throats not because of payback but because it is sound policy.
