Go Ahead, Make My Day

January 23, 2014

This should be the new slogan for both parties. We’d all be better off.

Conservative Script: You want your precious government programs you pathetic, bleeding-heart takers? Fine. Pay for them. Go ahead and raise taxes to cover all your good work. When you’re done taxing the Hell out of everyone, we’ll throw you out of office and lower taxes and stimulate the economy and cut your wasteful programs.

Liberal Script: You want a balanced budget without tax increases you selfish, heartless fat-cats? Fine. Take the money. Go ahead and cut programs to pay down the debt. When you’re done trashing popular, necessary programs, we’ll throw you out of office and raise taxes a little and build some infrastructure and help some people.

That’s all we want from either side. Just tell the other side, “Go ahead, make my day.”

We don’t care who says it first. If we can’t do the reasonable thing and raise taxes a little AND cut spending a little, that’s fine. Pick one and do it. Toss a goddamn coin if you have to.

This should be the electorate’s message to our bickering government.
