Those Republican tears Tuesday night were just the appetizer. Here comes the main course.

No...no you're not.

By my estimation it happened a bit before the election though. Right about the time they all realized that they had no chance of winning and decided to move into a nice little shack on the corner of Denial and Regret.

Evidently somebody forgot to relay the "you never go full retard" message.

They doubled down on it.

Please tell me English is not your first language. It is so difficult to understand what the hell you're talking about because of your complete lack of coherency and horrendous spelling.

At this point, the GOP should concede for the health of their party. Take one for the team and let the teabaggers run the show for a while. People will see them and their rhetoric for what they truly are. Then and only then will the GOP finally be rid of that radical faction and can be welcomed back to the adults' table of governance.

Huh? Reagan won in landslides and was very popular, in part because of his common sense "amnesty".

I don't think it has anything to do with language barrier as so much as medication, or lack there of. I think he's on something. Because some posts of his, I am able to decipher, this one, not so much.

I translated it for you and this post wasn't even close to the hardest to translate.

Nemesis does not appreciate your mischaracterization of him as "right wing." Much like A420, he is so far right of the right wing that he has convinced himself that he hates Republicans as much as he hates Democrats, excuse me, demons and repugs. You are dealing with a guy who believes in the rules of nature to the point that he refuses to get cancer treatment from a legitimate doctor.

Quick, name a country more tax friendly to the rich than the U.S? Tell me any other country where Mitt could get by paying 13% on tens of millions of dollars?

As much as the rich like to pay the tax victim card, they are the biggest benefactors most lenient tax system on the planet.

The Republican party needs to come closer to the center - not further away from it.

Well of course the Tea Party will take control. It's obvious to anyone who has been watching the most fair and balanced network on tv that Romney lost because he wasn't ultra conservative enough. The tea party also absolutely can tell the liberals in the party to fuck off; Boner or whatever that socialist masquerading around as a Republican house majority leader calls himself demanded the Tea Party fall in line during the debt ceiling crises. They proceeded to give him a big middle finger and Boner's response was to cave. There is absolutely room for the Tea Party to stave off the liberal socialists in the republican party just so long as they are willing to make a stand. And they most definitely are, no matter what.

The job creators ARE being taxed to death. For the past 30 years the over all % of the tax burden has shifted from the middle class to the job creating class. No sooner does wealth transfer to them from the middle does their taxable income increase and money spent on taxes balloon to even greater levels. If anything, taxes should be heightened onto the middle class and slashed for the job creator class to compensate for the shift in tax burden.
