The Conservative Republicans are going around the Country calling Mitt Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan a bold and Gutsy decision on the part of Mitt Romney. I could not agree with them more because to choose a man who has sat in the Republican Congress since 1998 and voted for every bill that was passed through by the Bush Administration,that led to the worse economic crises in our history as a Nation since the Great Depression, has to be either bold and gutsy or they are so out of touch that they think they have indoctrinated the Nation of voters to the point that we neither think or believe anything beyond what they tell us.
Others, would prefer to say the Republicans who are out of touch elitists, shows in their views and attitudes and the belief that we the American voters are too stupid to know the truth because they feel the Tea Party and Conservatives so effectively lied to us and trashed President Obama,and that all women should be subservient to a male, in their minds anyway,is more likely the truth. Electing a member of the Congress that has only a 10% liking rating is border-line insanity. Others question if Mitt believes he can buy the general election as he did the primaries?
Clearly he has read the polls that say the American voters have become much more informed than we were on the Tea Party in 2010 and the polls now say that 69% of us oppose the Tea Party. The Republicans must feel that they have been successful enough in blocking the election polls and early voting so “We the People” will not be able to cast our ballots or they feel with the help of people like Grover Norquist,Adelson and the Koch Brothers, they can effectively do as they did in the Gore and Bush campaign and dismiss our votes, while gaining the electoral votes.
785,600 voters in Pennsylvania alone, do not have voter ID although many marched with Martin Luther King to gain their civil rights. Without a birth Certificate some will be unable to get the ID to vote and they are primarily the elderly from war-torn Countries or the Black population who were born at home before birth certificates were given to home births. Without a birth certificate they cannot get picture ID although until this election they have voted for years and are supporters of President Obama. The Tea Party are openly anti-Civil rights no differently from The John Birch Society. Something is not just fishy in Denmark but in the Republican Party,as well. Most of us are smart enough to understand where the rotten fish originate from, without having to question the motives.
Mitt Romney has a campaign ad running that they want to save Medicare and is handing out the same spill on the campaign trail. They claim that President Obama is taking $716 Billion out of medicare while they are saving medicare. The truth is that yes President Obama is removing $716 Billion to pay the Seniors back the money they put into it for early cancer screenings and other check-ups and closing the donut hole that saves the cost of drugs for Seniors. The money that Seniors paid into is going back to them as well as the Seniors currently on long-term care and on Medicaid, while President Obama brings down healthcare for the rest of us by cutting out fraud and waste in the system and in doing so it will bring down the costs charged by Insurance Companies, Hospitals, and healthcare providers.
The media that is owned by Wall Street, are moving fast on promoting the Romney/Ryan lies, because a Obama re-election means that any attempt to take regulations off of Corporations,oil companies, and Banking will end if President Obama and the Democrats are re-elected while all of the Republicans get the boot. The billionaires will also have to start paying their fair share along with Corporations loop holes being closed. I’ve never been more ashamed of CNN than I am today. We have always know that Fox News was faux news but CNN’s new low is just that, a new low. To claim that you are fair and honest and then to not question the obvious lies, is not to their credit. They have been dropping in the polls so perhaps that is part of their problem but I have given Wolf Blitzer more credit than he apparently deserves.
The lies being promoted by the media and The Romney/Ryan plan is that they will save the middle class and Seniors money and in doing so they will save Medicare. They are telling the same people, the Romney and Ryan Plan are not the same but instead Romneys plan. They are claiming that President Obama is taking money out of medicare and giving it to Obama care and will bankrupt medicare for Seniors..
The truth is that the Romney/Ryan Plan takes out the exact same amount that President Obama does, but instead of giving it back to the Seniors who put the money in they give it to drug Companies,suppliers,Insurance Companies and hospitals and in doing so they keep open the donut holes while charging the Seniors to make up the difference out of their pockets. By taking yet more money from Seniors they claim that they will refurbish Medicare when in truth not giving it to Seniors will not save us the working poor, middle class, and Seniors, but enrich the Insurance Companies in form of subsidies by robbing the working poor and middle class workers with increased cost of Insurance policies and taxes in the subsidies they give instead to Insurance Companies.
They plan on repealing Obama care that would lower costs over the next ten years to all of us by forcing Insurance Companies, healthcare suppliers and drug Companies to compete more effectively and to eliminate the waste and fraud in their own systems in an effort to be more efficient and cost-effective to small businesses and the middle class. Staying on our parent’s policy until the age of 26,closing the donut hole and saving Seniors millions already,free preventive screenings for all patients of all ages, Insurance Companies not being able to kick off the chronically ill, and free birth control all are already in place with Obama care. Paul Ryan’s father was a lawyer who died when Ryan was 16 and his own college was paid for on Social Security benefits from his Father’s account.
Mitt Romney hired the same team in June, that Paul Ryan has on his Ryan Plan, to establish his own economic plan. When asked if they have run the numbers or what the numbers are on Mitt’s economic plan his advisers tell the people asking them, “No we don’t know yet but will get back to you.” They never do, of course, because there are no numbers to run as the same numbers on the Ryan plan adds to the deficit and does not balance a budget for 30 years. When Mitt says he will not be using Paul Ryan’s plan he is splitting straws because he has the same plan from the same team just as Romney care and Obama care are the exact same plan as stated by Johnathan Gruber of MIT, who formulated both plans. Gruber says that Mitt Romney is lying when he says they are not the same.
When did Mitt Romney ever tell any of us the Truth? Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich both called him a liar when he ran against them and Rick Santorum even said,”He is the worse possible man to run against Barack Obama.” His prediction is coming true if the voters are as well-informed as I believe them to be.
We know how bad Mitt Romney’s record in Massachusetts was and that the voters did not want him back a second term because job loss escalated making Massachusetts 47th in the United States, while jobs were being shipped to India, under his governorship. It took Democrat Governor Patrick two full terms just to clean up the messes that Mitt Romney made in the bridges after he left and Massachusetts is now at tenth place in job production. So What kind of record does Paul Ryan have in Congress?
In the 14 years that Paul Ryan has been a Tea Party Congressman he has only been able to pass through his own Party as well as the Democrats two bills. One of those was to name a Post Office. He engineered and tried to pass through the bill that all women who wanted to get an abortion,even victims of rape and incest included, would first have to have an ultra-sound with a vaginal probe, while the person giving the ultrasound would look the other way or revert their eyes so the women would not feel embarrassment or raped again.
Since this is an election year, even the Republican cowards in his own Party had to return to their home towns, otherwise they would have voted in favor of it. We can be certain both that bill will pass while the lost of Pell Grants and student loans, that both Ryan and Romney along with the Republican majority want gone, will not pass after the election, if any of us are foolish enough to vote for them. Paul Ryan as a bold and gutsy new leader,as they claim voted with the Congress in its entirety to filibuster 83 times any thing that President Obama tried to pass and this was agreed on when they all took a pledge to so 10 days after President Obama was sworn into office.
The Democrats tried to pass through 300 plus bills that would help the middle class as well as the drought stricken farmers and ranchers but on each of these bills, Paul Ryan who is being touted as the bright young leader of their Party along with 100% of the Republican Congress were made to take a pledge again at their Convention retreat just ten days after President Obama was sworn in,that they would attach an anti-abortion Bill to each bill the Democrats tried to pass through.
The Republicans all rose to the occasion and followed through as planned and at no time did this bright young leader suggest anything was wrong with their plan morally. He is a big promoter of wealth and has voted for each and any bill that increased Corporate and Oil welfare subsidies, while taking it from the working poor and middle class by increase cost in medical care and increasing taxes to the middle class. He was just another one of the Tea Party members who held out against giving us the decrease in taxes in January, if I may remind all of us.
He was amongst the Republican leadership who refused to work with the Democrat majority to pass healthcare unless the Democrats refused to shut down women’s healthcare by banning any and all medical provisions and clinics that gave healthcare to women not approved by them. He is first and foremost a Tea Party member of Congress and did not show up on the turnip truck with the rest of the yahoos in 2010, but has been in the Congress long enough that he has been effecting Republican policy going back to the Bush years.
He is both a radical in his policies and thinking and claims that his moral convictions come from Russian philosopher Ayn Rand (that is before he was chosen as Mitt’s VP and now he says no just her theories in economy). Just like Mitt he has proven to change stream when it suits him or the truth leaks out. Ayn Rand was an atheist all her life and did not believe that children were a necessary part of Society. Paul Ryan has said for years that Ayn Rand was the person who most influenced him in life and the reason he decided to go into politics but now that he is running as VP he says he did not know she was an atheist when she was always very open about her beliefs. It’s like saying we do not know the Pope is Catholic. The fact that he has told on numerous occasions that Ayn Rand was his mentor and shaped his morality and this offends the sensibilities of the right-wing, he is now denouncing Ayn Rand.
For Paul Ryan to deny it or that he does not support the Farm Bill,Personhood and all of the rest of the things his records indicate, explains to most of us why he and Mitt Romney feel close to each other. Neither has to take lessons on how best to deceive the American people, so they can get out hot on the trail without the necessary time it takes to teach either how to best lie bogging either down. Now he claims he is Catholic in his morality
To be fair,many of the Catholic Leadership claim his radical plan is one void of compassion. The bus load of nuns have been out on the bus for months telling Americans just how unfair his intentions for the poor and middle class is as he plans on doing away with Medicaid altogether and let the States decide if they want to continue it or not and eliminate food stamps in their entirety. With States that are run by TEA Party governors since 2010, do any of us think these same Governors will give health care needs and food to our children and our long-term elderly who go off of Medicare and onto Medicaid?
We do know the Tea Party governors along with our State Republican legislatures are firing police,firemen, and teachers as quickly as they can without drawing too much of that to our attention in our States don’t we? They have instead replaced those who protect us, with vigilante law entitled “Stand your ground Laws” co-sponsored by the NRA. To add insult to injury the Tea Party along with Republican legislatures in our States have passed,”the right to work laws” that gets rid of the Unions who protect our wages while lowering those wages by 36% over a two-year time Span, and then both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan along with the Republican majority are blaming President Obama for the decrease in pay that we the middle class are receiving along with the 5 trillion-dollar deficit that only Congress can pass when they themselves have blocked every effort attempted by the Democrats to pass through job relief for the middle class.
When the Republican elected Congress has totally tried to deny equality to women and as the majority have clearly failed to pass a budget and control the purse strings while they blame the Obama Administration for a failure to understand how businesses work or for failed policy, that they themselves have created, how can we the American public not believe that the Republican Party has fallen into the abyss and slime of their own doing. Every budget cut the Ryan plan makes is on the backs of the working poor and the middle class while bringing the taxes Mitt Romney and Billionaires pay down to 0 (zero). This has gone on in the Republican majority since the Bush Administration and continues today in Congress. To re-elect any of them is a vote against us, the working poor and middle class along with our children and Seniors.
Together on the campaign trail Paul Ryan is as effective as Mitt has been in saying, “He was for it before he was against it,” when it serves his needs and spares them both from telling us the truth,which would lead to boos from even some of their own Conservatives in the crowd. Mr. Etch-a-Sketch and Etch-a-Sketch Junior are headed to your town in the near future.
In the meantime we still wait for the never present tax returns of Mitt Romney’s to be turned over while he hems and haws or says it is just more ammunition for the Democrats to jump on. When we hear the word ammunition, then why wouldn’t we ask, “Where is the smoking gun,Mitt?”
You will recognize the Republican hopefuls from the fact that they will tell you they will get back to you on a question, which they never do, or by the lies they tell as their noses get even longer, as the truth in the Republican Party only belongs to the leadership of the Republican Party until their campaigns end in November, and the facts cannot be told in truth and in its entirety. Vote them all out before they continue to spread as the cancer that they created since the Republicans gained control in 2000 and threw America along with the working poor and middle class into a crises state.It will take us through 2016 to eliminate them all and to gain back our equality along with a fair wage for a days work. VOTE!
