A skilled poker player as they say, never shows his cards. Republicans seemingly haven’t heard such advice. With ‘fiscal cliff’ negotiations taking place in the media of late, they are proving to be poor poker players, poor negotiators, and all-to-willing to fold.
Several Republicans, responding weak-kneed in a kneejerk reaction to their 2012 election beating, have signaled a willingness to compromise on tax hikes, despite little indication that Democrats would make similar concessions with spending cuts. Senators Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), Lindsay Graham (R-SC), and Peter King (R-NY) have gone so far as to walk back a no-tax pledge they placed their signatures upon.

What say you patriots? Are we not taxed enough already? Are you calling and emailing your representatives?? I certainly hope so. We need to back up our words with actions. Now is not the time to cede ground. Yes, the election results sucked for conservatives, bigtime. Man up, move on, and get back in the damn fight! Don’t further divide an already fractured base, please.
