The reality is that the Democrats/liberals/Progressives and those who support them WANT to go over the fiscal cliff. Now why would they want to do that you ask?
The left wants more tax revenue (no matter who pays it) because they love to spend your money. They have increased the number of people on welfare to such an extent that it helped Obama get reelected. They even advertise on YouTube to get more people on government assistance.
You may wonder why Obama and his minions would allow the middle class to be harmed by the tax increases coming on January 1, 2013. That is because they really don’t care about the middle class. The Democrats will get their tax revenue, they will try to blame it on Republicans, and they will have more of your hard-earned money to waste.
Another reason that the left is satisfied to go over the fiscal cliff is because they will get massive cuts in defense spending without having to negotiate for those cuts. The lefties hate the military. Now they can simply sit on their hands and do nothing for the rest of the year and the cuts they really want will happen anyway. Don’t be fooled by Leon Panetta’s pleas that the nation’s defense will be harmed. He doesn’t really care, and his pleas are simply a Progressive performance.
Finally, the Democrats’ ultimate goal is the complete destruction of the Republican Party. They wounded the party in the 2012 election (with the assistance of the Republican Party itself), but that isn't enough. They hope to demonize Republicans to such an extent that they can re-take the House of Representatives in 2014. Recent polls indicate that those efforts are working.
Remember this: When the Democrats control the House, the Senate, and the White House, their ultimate goal is only partially complete. The final victory for the Democrats will be when they control enough state legislatures and governorships to amend the Constitution, eliminating many freedoms including the right to bear arms.
When the Republican Party finally dies, America will become a one-party nation. That, my friends, is a dictatorship.
You can then kiss your freedom goodbye, and our beloved Republic will fade into history…..
