    Romney/Ryan have eveything going for them thats positive for this country but people dont want to work, they want a handout and they love free stuff ( people will stand /sleep in line for 3 days to get a free xbox) all Obama can offer is free stuff to get people to vote for him. Deep in my heart I think Obama will win because the blacks, hispanics, poor, gays, women (who want their free birth control mammograms etc ) will turn out by the thousands he is everything they want . They are all the groups he has been pandering to. Middle class Americans, small business's dont stand a chance. You can bet the next big thing Obama goes after is guns...

Obamas economics are about his socialistic ideology, and the sooner people figure out he doesn't care about them and getting jobs, but about his ideology, maybe enough will see the light that America needs to get on a new track to expand the job market so investors will invest and small and large businesses will hire.

    This is the primary gist of the upcoming election...ARE THERE ENOUGH REAL AMERICANS AVAILABLE TO OFFSET THE SOMETHING-FOR-NOTHING CROWD...THE WHITE APOLOGISTS...THE HAND-ME-DOWN DEMOCRATS...THE IGNORANTS THAT ARE PURELY INTO CLASS ENVY AND WILL CHOP OFF THEIR OWN NOSE TO SPITE THEIR FACE.

    Time will tell if those of us in the Tea Party pursuasion...the grass roots of America...can overcome the "ice cream" promises of the left. The ignorance of the easily swayed..."the fools of this nation"...are what true Americans have to be the most concerned about. And what's undeniable is if we aren't successful in 2012, America will never again be the country designed by the founders. It will be overrun by the SFN crowd, much like Greece, and government will become a form of Marxist socialism.

    People, this is not rocket science to recognize what another 4 years of an Obama regime will bring to this country. For openers, forget about his SCOTUS appointments, his ruinous taxation for Obamacare, his continuing thuggery at running roughshod over the Constitution....his primary focus will be the dismantling of the 2nd amendment. And, oh bye the way, you can kiss any form of capitalism goodby.

    So you can see the task for most of us is not only scary, but gigantic. This 2012 election is far more than JUST one ideology vs another, it's whether or not you are ready to hand down to your progeny a piece of America that you grew up in, or a nation under a form of European socialism, subjected to diminishing freedoms on a daily scale.


    If you don't find this as being the most defining moment in your history, requiring you to get off your duff and find enough voters to overcome the Democrat onslaught of "ice cream promises", then you will be no better than the Sambos and Buzzs on this message board. There's no such thing as "NOT VOTING"! That attitude is what Obama's main 'hope' is.

    If he wasn't a politician and was really smart...he would work for a budget everyone could agree on, but instead he pushes budgets that he knows want pass but his base loves him, so he gets reelected. That is his mission. If you have had the experience I have, I find accounting types do not drive business. Business is more than managing cost. Smart businessmen spend when it makes sense and don't choke their business when things are tough, and know how to negotiate compromise.

    might want to do some research before labeling him as an accounting type


    After Kasten was defeated by Democrat Russ Feingold in 1992, Ryan became a speechwriter for Empower America, a conservative advocacy group founded by Jeane Kirkpatrick and William Bennett. Ryan later worked as a speechwriter for Jack Kemp, the Republican vice presidential candidate in the 1996 United States presidential election, and later worked for US Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas. In 1997 Ryan returned to Wisconsin and worked for his family's business, the Ryan Incorporated Central construction company, as a marketing consultant for a year. In 1998, he ran for Congress.

    At an Atlas Society meeting celebrating Ayn Rand's life in 2005, Ryan said that "The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand", and "I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It's inspired me so much that it's required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff. In response to criticism from Catholic leaders over his budget and Medicare proposals, in 2012 Ryan distanced himself from Rand's Objectivist philosophy.
