I don't understand why folks are so enamored of Paul Ryan! I appears to me that he stands for demolishing the safety nets that are a hallmark of a civilized society, while using the army as a substitute safety net (do we need more foreign adventures?), and coddling the rich, who take advantage of our public services (public education, infrastructure, safety personnel, etc.) while avoiding paying taxes in every way they can. Are they going to use their billions to repair our roads and bridges, or hire our public servants, such as teachers and policemen?
Yes, we have too many regulations, but do we need to shut down everything that protects us from the predatory nature of big for-profit corporations?
Does that mean we let industry continue to contribute to global warming, environmental disasters, and lousy food & health systems?
Why have we gotten to the point where some wealthy people appear to be trying to buy the election to protect their often ill-gotten gains?
Why are the airwaves filled with innuendo and out-right lies meant to instill fear in the heart of the gullible masses?
I'm sorry, but the Republicans have turned me off completely with their kowtowing to the right wingers (who seem to have their brains screwed on backwards), with their racist determination to undermine Obama since the day he was elected, and their refusal to compromise for the good of the country.
ProsperityforAll.org seems to me to have a much better handle on putting our country back on the right path - See Prosperity Economics: Building an Economy for All
