Goin Off The Fiscal Cliff With Linkin Park And "Burn It Down"

Yup, I have liked this Linkin Park song, Burn It Down, since it came out earlier this year.
And now, it seems rather appropriate as we, I really believe hopefully, go off the manufactured "Fiscal cliff" that our esteemed political leadership "negotiated" earlier this year in a debt-ceiling hike.
I think it is a pretty cool video. Doncha think so?
Anyhow, I think it is great to do a little sing along, especially the chorus, because if you really think about it, it is exactly what the Democrats and the Dear Leader, President Obama, wanted to create.
A crisis.
Because as the current mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emmanuel, once said, you should never let a good crisis go to waste.
And it is a sure one for Republicans.
As I have noted here, the Republicans will be blamed no matter how this turns out. So instead of meaningless negotiations, I have now thoroughly come to the conclusion that we on the Republican side, and especially us conservatives, need to let the truck go right off this "Fiscal cliff".
And yes, the private economy will for sure suffer.
And the theme song is, Burn It Down.
Lets just get to the awesome chorus:

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

So, how does this relate to the so-called "Fiscal Cliff"?
Here, lets break it down, so to speak, from Team Democrat.

We're building it up=building up the government. Creating big government.

To break it back down=having big government, whether they realize it or not, breaks the private sector in many ways. Especially in taxes. Thus the economy will not be about growth in the private sector but how to get money to pay for the public sector.

Let's skip the second Building it up and jump right to this one.

To burn it down=raising taxes and not just on that two percent we keep hearing our Dear Leader, President Obama, and the Democrats rant and rave about. After all, again as noted here, if the feared sequestration does take place, it will not be that two percent to feel the pinch. It will be almost all of us.

See, no matter what the Democrats say about this so-called tax "fairness" in getting that eeeeevvvvviiiiilllll two percent of the stinking, filthy rich, they know deep down that they can not pay for all their big government without more money from the suckers that voted for the Dear Leader, President Obama taxpayers.
Do you like that child tax credit that is now $1,000? Forget it because if sequestration occurs, it goes down to $500. It does not go away, but it gets cut and means more money for the feds.
And expansions of the Earned Income Credit and the Dependent Care Credit, well they go away and it goes back to what it was before.
How do you like only getting only 4.2% taken out of your paycheck for Social Security? Well, that goes back to 6.2% if sequestration happens.
And if you like government tax credits for "alternative" fuels and community development, bye bye!
But see, all this occurs if nothing is done as of January 2, 2014. And the best part for the Democrats is, as duly noted, they will blame the Republicans because they would just not allow the hike in taxes for the two percent of the eeeeevvvvviiiiilllll, filthy, stinking, rich folks.
But if they get this money that they need to keep the government going and let some phantom cuts occur in all but defense spending, they think that they can get the win.
Now the Republicans have to go on the offensive and drive it home that they do not want to raise any one's taxes. That they want to keep the tax rates as is and have true tax reform that will benefit all taxpayers and not just put some against each other.
In the meantime, the Democrats can and I think will just let it go. They will not let a good crisis go to waste. They will burn it down to get what they really want.
