Didn't someone tell you Paul Bots the party is over?
Well I guess you don't even have to go out and Vote now. You have it all figured it out.
Paul Ryan is this Administration's worst nightmare...someone who understands economics...actually HAS a plan to fix what's wrong with the country...and isn't afraid to state what that plan is. He is exactly what we need.
Contrast that with what we are getting from Team Obama...finger pointing and excuse making. This is a group of people who can't even do something as basic as submitting a viable budget.
It's a stark choice...four more years of deadlocked incompetence with the country mired in a stagnant economy...or letting some people take charge who understand business and economics...and are ready to make the changes that we need to make to start solving our problems.
Well, we understand your disappointment with the system (which we share), but be careful of excessive hyperbole. Worse?
Its not over son not by a long shot,he may not win the nomination (no thanks to fraud and cheating from the republican party) but we have several people already in office and are going to have even more elected this year to congress or senate. Here in Ga alone we have 2 folks in the house may not be many right now but its a starting point.
Oh I always vote. I will be voting for Gary Johnson if Paul isn't the nominee. I might just vote for Obama if I think Romney has a snowball's chance in hell of actually winning.
It doesn't matter who is in office as long as the government tries to control the economy nothing will get better. Allow the free market do its thing and leave it be.I could care less if the economy is good if we don't have freedom and liberty to do go along with it,and seeing how Romney/Ryan are for the "patriot" act,for illegal wiretapping,for war in Iraq,that pretty much shows me they are anti freedom and liberty.
Its not hyperbole. I am merely pointing out what kind of piece of shit Romney has selected as his running mate.
At this point I think a VP selected at random from the phone book is better than what we have. At least Ryan will stand up and say what he believe. Obama changes his plan more than his underwear and they both stink.
Romney/Ryan = Obama/Biden
Gary Johnson = liberty.
After months of saying that republicans didn't have a plan, democrats felt secure that no matter how bad obama's intentions were he at least had intentions. Ryan's job is to promote the republican plan. The democrats are going to rely on a presumed fact that Americans no longer want to work. They prefer being supported by a generous government rather then spend their time cranking out that 9-5 thing.
