We are in a fight for the future of America. Anyone who watched the Republican National Convention speeches knows this. Anyone who has witnessed the ...
This is the Paul Ryan I know. In the final analysis, my hope is that all of the candidates for President and Vice President will be judged by their beliefs, their vision, and their goals for this nation.
I can now truly confirm folks, that Mitt is all set for this presidential race and is ready to be unleashed!! So ladies, gentlemen and canines of either sex, put your hands and your paws together and let's hear it for our republican top dog.
A deficit he alleges is stifling our economic growth and was caused by the Obama administration, when, in fact, he and his right-wing colleagues exploded the deficit.
Job Responsibilities: Support current President of the United States without sabotaging re-election campaign. Do what you are told. Other duties may be assigned as they are discovered.
If the Republicans' fears are true, could it mean Democrats have a much better chance at taking the House back in the upcoming elections? To put it another way, will we see "Speaker Nancy Pelosi" again next year?
We can all agree that there are hard choices to be made. But Mr. Ryan's way is not the right way. His "hard choices" are hard on women, hard on children, hard on the middle class, and hard on the disadvantaged.
How has the Progressive Party of the Social Gospel gone so far astray of Winthrop? How have so many rewritten Winthrop to serve a "Civil body corporate"?
Unless you're a gullible 16-year-old, a 42-year-old Tea Partier or an 86-year-old former chairman of the Fed, you could probably use a primer on the mother of Objectivism, that Dostoevsky for dummies, Ayn Rand.
In spite of whatever the TV pundits are gushing about or the Beltway columnists are writing about Paul Ryan's value to the Romney ticket, there is simply nothing to indicate his selection means any new electoral votes for the GOP.
This no doubt endears Ryan to the Tea Party folks who would have all that -- and the repeal of the health reform -- done before breakfast on Inauguration Day, but it is hardly a transcript of Christ's invitation to the rich young man to sell all his possessions and follow Him.
Do Americans realize that under a Ryan economic regime, tens of millions of our poor neighbors would be dropped categorically and coldly to the curb, with no support whatsoever from the very system that our forefathers and mothers set up to ensure that America would prosper?
In his speech Saturday morning, Paul Ryan emphasized the need for Americans to take back its right to choose. Isn't it right to assume that, if we want the government out of off our backs and out of our wallets, we'd also want the government out our wombs?
Nothing spells fear more than irrationality. And there is nothing safe or rational about choosing Paul Ryan as your running mate.
Paul Ryan's savage cost cutting plan is well-known. He'd cut tens of billions from Medicaid and Medicare, and more than a trillion from everything from food stamps to welfare over the next decade.
Romney's choice of Paul Ryan for Vice President gives him the clearly articulated agenda his campaign has lacked to date. But, in the long term, the GOP has to change if it wants to remain competitive for the White House.
