What?

That was fairly irrelevant. There are different ways to fight for what is right. We don't live in some utopian dream where all the American citizens magically realize what policies work and what policies do not work on their own, they need very clear examples. By asking whether the point is to get more Republicans elected or to lower taxes you missed my point entirely. Obviously the goal is lowering taxes, but how you get there is what is being debated. Taxes are going to go up--that is just an inevitable fact--so the question becomes whether we want our representatives to share in the tax hike by negotiating and compromising, or do we want them to stand aside and let the people who want to raise taxes implement their plan in its entirety without watering it down. Because once the economy gets worse, only with the latter will our representatives completely escape blame and have clearly proven an ideological point to the American public.
