"Republicans Must Not Cave"

Good polemic by Adam Hasner, a conservative candidate for Senate in Florida.

We just canít cave.

After months of posturing and failed leadership from President Obama and politicians of both parties, the debate on the debt limit is finally coming to a head.

I honestly believe we have reached a moment in history when the fate of our country is at a crossroads.

Down one road is an uncertain future marked by reckless spending that deepens the debt and deficits that are killing jobs and holding American prosperity hostage. The elites and experts tell us we have no choice but to accept the path of higher taxes and new borrowing. And naturally, they prophesize disaster if we donít continue down the only path the rest of us know America canít afford.

But this is the same argument weíve heard before. Trillions of dollars in spending later and trillions more in the hole, it is time to change course and chart a new direction.

The world will not end if Washington learns to control its spending addiction. In fact, if we can find the courage to curb trillions in reckless spending and slow the runaway growth of government, we can send nations around the globe a simple signal: There is a way to avoid a Greece-like day of reckoning. Spend less. Cut more. And stop making promises government canít keep.

Politicians in both parties donít want to hear this. Too many are willing to compromise. Cut another deal. And kick the can down the road to another Congress, another election, and ultimately another generation.

And this is absolutely unacceptable.
