Republicans (McCain, Graham, Boehner, Corker etc) Now Disavowing Their Grover Norquist Pledge To Never Raise Taxes

One by one the hypocrite Neo-Con "republicans" are falling into line.

But how CAN'T they raise taxes when they vote to give Israel 70 BILLION DOLLARS?

And spend 2 BILLION a week in Afghanistan?

And give away billions more to other nations each year?

Graham says he'll violate his pledge IF democrats agree to reform "entitlements."

Someone tell the rat Lindsey Graham that we are FORCED to pay into Social Security and Medicare (UNLIKE HIM who gets a sweet congressional deal for his benefits for life).

They are no longer entitlements - they are PAYBACK for us getting stolen from all our lives.

Genesis 47 ... there's a pattern here...

beginning in verse 13 - the burden upon us will only INCEREASE now, never decrease...only deliverance is next

When there is no bread, they raise taxes; next they'll take our production, then our land ... eventually we will be in total bondage/servitude/OWNED...until God brings us out of it; when He decides we've had enough and humbled ourselves as a nation that ONCE reverenced Him...

13And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine. 14And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house. 15And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth. 16And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail. 17And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year. 18When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands: 19Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.

20And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's. 21And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof. 22Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands. 23Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land. 24And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones. 25And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants. 26And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part; except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh's.

yet one more GOP betrayal

Might this be one more opportunity for genuine supporters of liberty, private property, and sound money to enter the GOP in the next two to four years on the local, State, and perhaps Congressional level? Since Republicans tend to be more successful when they strongly contrast their (more-or-less) libertarian program with the (more-or-less) socialist/corporatist program of the Democrats, the assertion that compromisers will be "unelectable" in future races will carry considerable weight with both media and contributors.

The fact that these mainstream GOPers also have the most horrid foreign policy--perpetual war for perpetual peace--would be one more point in our favor.

PEACE AND FREEDOM!!

The conventional compromise:

The conventional compromise: Increase taxes, leave spending alone.

The liberty movement compromise: Cut spending on both military and entitlements.

Not too surprising

The election is over :P

So basically what Graham et. al. are saying is that the only

way they will agree to increase my taxes is if the Democrats agree to cut my Social Security?

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Exactly Soggy Bottom - that IS what Lindsey Graham is saying.

He's the dirtiest rat in the Senate.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

That seems to be the logical conclusion

they are not offering to cut their unConstitutional activities,certainly!
