Republicans: Time to play chess – for keeps ~ By Robert Ringer

If Republicans don't man up soon, the job of fundamentally transforming the United States into a left-wing dictatorship cannot be more than a few short years away.
Robert Ringer explains why the Republicans shouldn't have given Obama the tax compromise, and had they played the game of politics like it was a chess game, they could have done much better. Robert believes that "the most important reason Republicans should not have gone along with the tax compromise is that it was a continuation of their decades-old habit of acquiescing to Democratic blackmail."

Thomas Paine said that "Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one." With Congress' approval rating at a stunning 13 percent, it doesn't appear that many people disagree with Paine's analysis.

Now, with a new Congress ready to take charge, many are excited about the possibility that the accelerating, anti-constitutional power of government over its citizen serfs will be reversed. But what's the likelihood it will really happen?

In an outgoing flurry of activity, Democrats and progressive Republicans flipped one last gigantic bird to America's Main Streeters. Some were shocked at the audacity, but those of us who have become cynical watching decades of political sewage pouring out of Washington were not surprised by the government's contempt for voters.

Now, the big question is, will Republicans be able to start turning things around before 2012? I believe the answer to that question lies in how successful they will be at cornering Obama into no-win situations. Politics, you say? Yes! Do you believe these fire-breathing, anything-goes political animals are going to respond positively to reason? BHO's entire adult life has been one big game of political one-upsmanship.

For example, regardless of which way the economy appears to be going, BHO will be prepared to take the high road. If the tax compromise produces a temporary, illusory effect on the economy, he will claim that he turned things around by endorsing a tax cut for all Americans.

On the other hand, if the illusion of a turnaround does not come about, his position will be, "To show bipartisanship, I decided to give Republicans a chance and go along with their insane idea to give billions of dollars away to the wealthiest Americans, and, predictably, it didn't work. Now we're going to get back to doing things my way so we can grow this economy." That will give him a perfect excuse for returning to policies that are based on a system that all straight-thinking people realize has never worked: socialism.
