Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan: Back to the Failed Top-Down Policies

Paul Ryan is the mastermind behind the extreme GOP budget plan. It’s a plan Mitt Romney endorses.

But what does that budget mean for America? The GOP budget plan hurts seniors, it hurts middle-class families, and it hurts students. All to pay for tax cuts for those at the top.

Well, they’re too very different things, campaigning and governing.  

Obama can’t control Congress, even when the Democrats control the House and the Senate.  There are conservative Dems, Republicans who are hellbent on blocking everything the President wants to do, etc, etc.  On the campaign trail, they have complete control.  

I just hope the hard hits keep coming.

“Here’s a question: if Barack Obama had to go through a brutal process of defending the doctrines, sermons and ideology of a church he merely attended, why is Mitt Romney exempted from explaining the doctrines and statements and ideology of a church he was an actual leading official in?”

Transcript:

My name is Gary Johnson. Today I reach out to you: members of all political parties.

I reach out to everyone with a vote and an axe to grind.

From the Tea Party to the Constitution Party, Green and Libertarian Parties: I call out to all of you. Including the disaffected and disillusioned among the Republicans and Democrats.

Today, there’s a handful of people in Washington ruining America for three hundred and thirty million of us. They’ve kept our nation in a state of perpetual war; and increasing, unsustainable debt. This small group has presided over the elimination of our Bill of Rights, and the systematic dismantling of our freedoms guaranteed us under our constitution.

It is them we should be fighting, not each other. We the people will never agree on the small things, but let’s agree on the big things.

Our leaders have blown it. if we don’t get control of this ship together, and fix it together, we all go down with it together.

I ask you to join me in something that’s never been attempted before in America: let’s put our parties and differences aside one time. Be libertarian with me for one election.

Together, we’ll stop the spending and end the wars. Together, we’ll rebuild our own roads, bridges, schools and hospitals instead of building theirs half a world away. Together, we’ll restore our industrial might and our economy.

And if, in four years we as a people decide we don’t like peace, prosperity and freedom, we can always vote tyranny back into office, again.

America is better and brighter than this. Be libertarian with me this one time, and I’ll prove it to you. Live free.
