As Paul Ryan quote my favorite founding father in referencing Inalienable Rights and the Consent Of The Govern. I hope he also references and quotes Thomas Jefferson "that not only that government governs best which governs least."
But that he warned us of the very dangerous situation which haunts us this very day. He said..." I place Economy among the first and most important Virtues...and Public Debt as the greatest of all evils to be feared. To preserve our independence we must never let our leaders load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between Economy and Liberty on the one hand, or Profusion and Servitude on the other. If we run into such debt. We must be taxed in our meat and drink, our necessities, our comforts, and in our labor and amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people to the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."-Thomas Jefferson
Ryan was always the guy I wanted in the White House. Love him on policy and he's great in an interview/speaking extemporaneously. His message today was great, but I wish he wasn't so wooden in his delivery of prepared remarks. Really looking forward to the rest of the campaign, though. This is starting to get really fun!
Well Ryan is someone I hoped Palin would have picked for VP, so I'm very pleased with him being chosen.
Just had a long conversation with my father, he's given up on the GOP because of their disdain for us, the way they destroyed Palin, Gingrich, Santorum during the primaries... to force an establishment candidate on us (McCain/Romney) only at the last minute to give us a genuine conservative who fires up the base (Palin/Ryan). He's convinced the base doesn't want establishment Romney and that they will stay home on election day.
I don't know if this changes that. I like to believe Romney is electable, that Ryan would actually have some influence as VP, and that Romney isn't lying about repealing Obamacare. Basically I would like to believe that Romney will do the things in office he is saying, and not to just assume he is a liar because the base is convinced he is.
I don't know, I did not want Romney up there. But now he is, him and Ryan, to ME, it looks like they could kick Obama out. That's what matters here.
I think that Paul Ryan for Rmoneytax VP is just OK, but nothing close as excellent VP choice:
Get ready to Palin-ization of Ryan.
And question is
Who care about Paul Ryan as VP ?
Answer must be - NOBODY of independents, Spanish only speaking people or
Game is over, my friends
Take care next Congress and Senate as conservative as possible
Dang. Forgot to thank TRS for posting the whole thing for us.
THANKYOU VERY MUCH. Love your concluding comments too.
Great way to start the day. Thanks.
Imagine what it will be like to have 2 men who will return to these offices the respect they deserve and which has been so sorely missed.
Imagine what it will be like to have 2 families in DC that represent the American way. What a refreshing change. Thanks to Paul Ryan for overcoming his reservations about the effect of such an office on his young children. Prayers for them all. CONGRATULATIONS.
Sounded like a darn good start!
Romney & Ryan or Obama/Biden, that's just too darn easied.
It's up to us Americans to fix the problem.
I'm excited! That was a great speech, patriotism at its best! Also, loved the music.
LET'S TURN THIS THING AROUND!!!
Outstanding speech. Outstanding. I feel a bit better today knowing who the VP is, and knowing it isn't some loser. Also, I love that music that introduced Ryan. What movie was that from?
Creative Minority makes an excellent point: "Mitt Romney keeps the social conservatives on board and perhaps even enthuses them a bit by selecting about as solid a social conservative as he could possibly have picked and that naturally turns the media discussion to the ECONOMY!
He selected a 100% pro-life pro-family veep and all anyone can talk about is the economy. That, my friends, is called WINNING!"
This is such a volatile issue that anyone who disagrees will probably be called a traitor or worse. But the fact is the VP really has very little authority. We still have a RINO at the top of the ticket. Not a game changer.
I am going to be a girl for a minute. Paul Ryan is so handsome with beautiful eyes and long lashes. Okay, finished. He was my preferred choice for VP yet another VP to make the ticket palable from the beginning.
Paul Ryan is an excellent VP choice
The Obama cheerleaders in the media are already attacking him because of the budget he proposed last year. Well, bring it on. Let's have a fight over substance. And let's expose Obama for the destructive leftist he is and Biden for the weak dufus he is.
With all the excitement surrounding Mitt Romney’s announcement of his running mate, I ask you, readers, to pause.
Don’t write a word, don’t make a snap judgment, don’t critique the VP choice, don’t exult in its brilliance. Just take a moment and realize that whomever is chosen, he is a person about to go through an ordeal that few people will ever experience. Pray for his family. Pray that he can meet the challenges of the campaign trail without being burned by the spotlight.
I saw it first hand four years ago, of course. (Can you believe that it’s been that long?)
Our country’s future is at stake, and the other side will do all it can to not just defeat this person but also to destroy his reputation. The next 90 days will be among the most challenging of his life.
I’m going to pray for Paul Ryan. Please join me. Bristol Palin
I agree with her. hope ryan adds what this campaign needs.
I haven't seen anything from Chaney yet, did anyone bother to get Chaney's approval on this? I'm concerned : )
"Let’s have a fight over substance." Good luck with that. Since when did Obaminites ever debate anything of substance? Their record is pathetic. The only thing that they can do is divert and attack, then debate some straw man arguement; while the media continues their practice of yellow journalism.
You know what excites me here? When I saw Ryan standing next to Romney, I saw the second time in a presidential election where the "old" guard is selecting stong, upcoming, YOUNG CONSERVATIVES!!!! This gives me a tremendous amount of hope that we are going to be able to swing this country back to fiscal responsibility and back to a path of constitutional principles.
I literally cried this morning while the dramatic music was being played in the background introducing Congressman Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney's running mate. I am over joyed!!! This ticket brings hope, optimism, and most importantly LEADERSHIP our country desperately needs to solve our most serious issues. GOD BLESS AMERICA, NOT GD AMERICA MR. OBAMA!!!
Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan 2012!!!
My thoughts:I don't know much about Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney is far from being my first choice. However, I would rather much have these guys in office than Obama any day of the week, I honestly believe another 4 years of Obama would be disastrous for this nation. Yes Romney is fairly progressive and there's reason's to be concerned, however I believe with him we can at least buy time and we have influence over Romney whereas we have absolutely no influence on Obama. To those that loath Romney and refuse to vote for him, well you are essentially giving away your vote to Obama. At this point getting rid of Obama should be top priority. After that we can work together to keep Mitt in line and reverse the damage done. So do not think of it as a vote for Romney but a vote AGAINST Obama.
I guess I will risk the treatment BSScoop got. I already knew Romney would not embrace the kind of conservatives like West, Palin and Bachmann who stand to fight the Republican establishment. My first reaction to this was we lost a great man in our House. When the confetti settles this does not change anything about Romney.
Of course it could have be worse. That is the moto of the Republican party. Ryan was the best of the list he put together - the problems with the others were all addressed here. As with everything Romney has done this is vanilla stuff - he just is not coming out hard against anything. Not attacking the lawlessness or corruption of the Hussein regime. Not embracing true conservatives.
This is campaign hype. VPs never have any real effect on policy. Boehner is the problem with the budget. This choice does not change Romney's Progressive record and will not sway me from the real battle back to the Constitution and the Rule of law. If it helps I will be thankful.
So we should chase away realists like BSScoop who do not jump on the bandwagon?
What you're suggesting is political suicide. Romney doesn't want to come out hard. He wants Obama to do that. It makes Obama looks like he's in full panic mode. Romney wants to be the consistent, stable and reliable candidate that doesn't freak out at everything Obama say or does. Could you imaging? If Romney did that, he'd be a spinning top and he'd always be responding. When you respond, you are a follower, not a leader. Not saying you shouldn't respond to false charges, but you can't always be doing that. Romney is playing this right.
Boehner is the problem.
Fixed that sentence up for you. The establishment is the next big issue, and that is entirely about the House leadership. The Senate doesn't concern me as much because they have enough rock solid Tea Party types to block Republican stupidity. House candidates have to be replaced consistently over the next couple years, but it will only happen if we don't compromise our ideals.
You are not a realist your are ignorant. He you would get off your butt and actually read you would not sound like a moron! But you do. Ryan is by far the most in financial policy and issues is Reaganesque. Go read his words and speeches...this man is right out of Reagan 101 and he loves America. Allen West is a good man and Michelle Bachman a great lady and Sarah would not run twice even though I love her a as well. But your pouty and childish response reflects the same ignorance of BS!! You have no idea who Ryan is because I guarantee you have read nothing about him...you look at him because he is in Washington and fail to see he has been Obama's biggest foil!! Get off your butt and look at his response to Obama over Obamacare...he cleaned Obama's Clock!! He talks wealth creation and individual freedom...he tackles issues no one else is willing and you sit here like a little whiner with no idea of what you are saying.
When the dust settles....GET A CLUE MORON...The dust...no hurricane buddy because RYAN is a TEA PARTY favorite and go back to your ignorance bottle and take a drink....you can sit and make a mess in your pants while the TEA PARTY cleans your clock and you can kiss BS in the process when you both look trite and small!!
Educate yourself fool!
Okay, after looking over your posts, I am going to refer you to this; http://www.therightscoop.com/the-right-scoop-commenting-rules/
This is a warning, you can take it however you like, but if cannot make your point without insults and personal attacks, you won't be posting here very long.
hey buddy..stop calling her names..what is wrong with you? All I saw in your post was nastiness, not the content..which suggests name-calling speaks more about you then our fellow scoopster sDee!
Dang, I really wish I'd seen what "Michael" wrote to sDee now. I know from the context of the replies that it was offensive and I'm glad it was removed as such. But still would have liked to read it - for future reference regarding any other posts by Michael. I, like many others here, like sDee's posts and read them with great interest. I don't take kindly to offensive posters either.
Your post is spot-on, nibbles. My reaction was exactly the same as yours. I just had more time with mine cos the original post was deleted!
well done...much better stated than what I posted...I am afraid I was boiling mad and did take the time I should have. I am a bit hot-headed(blush) what you posted was dead on..and that is the reason I respect you and your posts so much.
Thanks nibblesyble - I went to post this response but I guess that comment was justifiably removed, thank goodness. FWIW here's an edited version, which I hope is OK to post, since it supports our Constitution-loving friend sDee:
Your response is sadly misdirected, and very offensive. sDee is a long time poster here at TRS, you appear to be quite new, Guest.
Have you read all of sDee's posts? You would learn a lot if you did. Many of us here make a point of reading those posts for their cogency, constistency, and loyalty to the Constitution. Who are you to put such insults in writing and aim them at sDee? If we were all like you, we'd tell you to get lost, or grow up. But there's no good to be done in insulting anyone, is there? Remember that please, and catch up on your reading of sDee's posts so you can learn from your mistaken post above. Cut it out.
.....and those who do not get on the bandwagon are ridiculed and demeaned.
Quite reminiscent of the Obama campaign 2008. Goebbels would be proud.
So we should chase away realists like BSScoop who do not jump on the bandwagon?
Nope, it is idiotic, moronic and quite frankly extremely stupid. The way to deal with people who can't vote for Romney is to accept it and encourage them to at least get out and vote for conservatives they can support in House and Senate races but Romneybots tactics are to attack attack attack just like liberals do. Its very disheartening.
I think it's up to Scoops who he lets post on his website. But if it were up to me, so long as he was respectful to other readers/posters, even if I disagreed with the points being made, I'd welcome his input. Just my 2c
'Respectful' eh? You mean like 'Michael' and his response to 'sDee' there, right?
Baloney! Used to think much of this site and its owner. Let's just say things have changed.
Welll John, by the time I was able to log in again, "Micheal"'s post was showing as "guest" and was cut, so I've no idea what he posted. I did says that it was up to Scoop who could and could not post here. I also said that people that do post here should be respectful, evidently Michael/guest was not. I've flagged posts before if they were abusive because I don't respect people who are personally abusive to other commentators so I've no problem with such posts being booted. Don't know if you'll see this reply seeing as I'm making it some 19 hours after you made yours, but if you do, I hope that clears my position up. Good day.
