The "common ground" is the fact that there is basically no difference between the Demunists and the Republicans. They are both out to preserve their own power in Washington and could care less about the American people. To them, we are all just serfs put here to do their bidding and pay taxes to keep them comfortable. A pox on both their houses! Bring on American Revolution II.
No Paul Ryan, let me state this very clearly. We must allow the Dems to have their wishes granted. Vote present on everything. Preface every law with Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro stated thus it must be the law of the land.
The common ground - they cave to our demands, not the REPs caving, again and again to their demands.
Let it all go off the cliff. We can start over. Think what our great(great) grandparents had when they came to this country. Not much. Time for a re-set and the fittest survive and we will all be praying and serving God.

I see little other choice.

Too late Paul. The Dems are emboldened now and the Republicans fear bad press. There won't be a compromise... just a cave in from Boehner, McConnell and Cantor.

Forget the government, man, it's already gone. Save yourselves. Our Founders were right. They saw this coming. They knew we wouldn't be able to preserve our Constitution. Once all of this burns with fire, we'll have to fight to restore order. And it isn't going to be pretty. Especially in the big cities. (Look to New Jersey and Staten Island after Sandy) But one thing's in our favor, the "flyover states" outnumber the "marxist states"; and the marxist states won't survive their own policies anyway.
People are fleeing states like California en mass thanks to an enormous voter approved tax hike. Fools deserve the fruits of their labor.
I wanted to believe differently HOWEVER it is now clear that we are all sheep and it does not matter to the Republicans or Democrats who is in power. They probably even meet to decide when it's time to change power
They all get the goodies and we all get a screwing.
Fox thinks they're being "fair and balanced" by giving card carrying communists an equal seat at the table on all their shows. How's it workin' out? Does Chris Matthews give a damn if he's being fair and balanced? Wake up..
They must realize that can't can't be both "fair" and "balanced" at the same time.
Fairness must entail treating viewers fairly.
You can't do that by attempting to achieve "balance" between moderate Conservatives and raving mad Socialists.
At Fox, "Fair and Balanced" means standing a lie up against the truth so that one can discern neither.
"Truths and Facts" would be a better slogan and philosophy for them. I'm tired of all this bringing in some leftist to defend the indefensible myself.
Paul Ryan ain't gonna save us. We have to do that individually as with our families.
Stock up and get ready for the future bad times. Food, firearms, ammunition, fuel,
batteries, wood for cooking outdoor and heating indoors, cash (I don't care what anyone says, you won't buy anything at 7-11 with a gold coin). Did I say FOOD? Check those expiration dates. Make sure they are good through at least 2015. Canned goods are already cooked and may be eaten cold. Just saying get ready, don't be like Staten Island.
It saddens me that Paul Ryan is already starting to talk about compromise.
It saddens me even more that he is not addressing the question of voter fraud. I find it very hard to believe that he, Romney, their managers, didn't question at least some of the results - not then not now.
Yep, I'm a bit disappointed.
Sad, isn't it ... being 'a bit disappointed' is a polite, gentle formula to hide my true feelings behind - which I couldn't express here, because scoop would rightly kick me out.
If the agreement prohibits, you look for a citizens group like FreedomWorks to do so on behalf of the voters. I was inspired by this article of theirs today http://www.freedomworks.org/blog/eyeonfreedom/lessons-from-philadelphia-whats-next
Wolfie, Rshill posted some links to an agreement that was made back in 1982 between the RNC & the DNC that precludes them from taking action. I think it is on this thread if you have time to scroll through.
Once again, the RNC reached across the aisle and pulled back a bloody stump.
I can't understand it either! They SHOULD be screaming blue bloody murder from the rooftops!!!! Instead it looks like they are hiding under the porch!
I am too! I find it unbelievable that there isn't some coalition that is making noise about the election process and results. I can somewhat understand why Romney and Ryan are not screaming from the rooftops but what about some of the superpacs, the RNC or their attorneys? How can fraud so blatantly perpetrated be overlooked as though it were nothing?
Only Allen West has called it out and stated the importance of elections with integrity that can hold the public's trust.
Wrong!! Ryan, Romney!!! Wrong! Thieves have stolen your victories.... Are you blind?
Don't you read the real news? Apparently not.
Boehner plays golf with FuBar Ack....you want it too, three, fo............?
I don't know about bi-partisan. That usually means the Dems get what the want. What I want and I think many American's want, is to start FIXING what's broken. Sometimes that's bi-partisan and sometimes it's not.
its a shame voter fraud is so easily carried out. I dont think many Americans feel o won the race fair and square. Ryan always take the high road and doesnt fight the fringe
Yep - they define what the 'common ground' is, and shift this ground to the left, further and further, followed meekly by the 'conservatives', who become more and more socialist in the process.
It's just the same over here in the UK ...
exactly right, these people just don't get it. the election was literally stolen by the Left, and our "leadership" just goes on about their business. the Left would be burning the country down...
Why is it that, no matter who is talking lately, it always seems like we are being led down the garden path again?
Nothing - absolutely nothing, makes sense on the surface. The Republicans will not even stand and tell America that all these problems are not accidental at all - they are the direct and intended results of the marxist and globalist policies of our government.
I more and more am realizing that the only options the people have are to submit or fight for our very freedoms. Why would we wait for the very politicians who have failed us repeatedly?
This is not going to end well. Why not take the advantage and accelerate the inevitable collapse that all socialist governments end in? Let's get this over with and quit pretending we have a representative government.
We've done everything that is necessary. The silly Democrats in the Senate need to get in line, otherwise we are all in trouble.
"Surprised" is that what you call it. After Al Franken election and the documented fraud from the DemonRats over the years, it should surprise nobody that somehow every swing state had amounted huge amounts of voter fraud. The good new for the Dems is that they didn't have to "suddenly find huge amounts of paper ballots in the cars of operatives.
I'm just one amongs millions that now feel the election was indeed stolen, Congressman and we want to know what you plan to do about it. If it comes down and I think it will, that you do nothing, we'll do something that will involve the second amendment and the Declaration of Independence and that observation of government being so destructive to Liberty.
Seriously folks, have you heard enough of the BS from go along get along critters from Congress? Choke.
Still pretty bummed that Mr. Ryan isn't our new V.P. The thing that divides this country is the dems want to do everything that is BAD for this country, and the majority of Republicans want wants best for this country. It should remain divided if the dems won't meet the republicans half way. We should NEVER give in to bad policies, we should stand our ground.
Yep. We could have chosen four years of optomism, problem solving, and a promising and bright future. Like Ryan said throughout the campaign, the electorate had a clear choice. So dissappointing that so many chose willfill ignorance, denial, entitlement mentality and petty class envy over shared prosperity and love of country.
Paul Ryan has always promoted a positive, optimistic vision for our nations future. I admire his efforts to try and make the best of a disasterous election result but I'm sure inside he's struggling with the same doubts we're all struggling with over our country's future.
Here we go again. I cringe anymore when I hear the words bipartisan and common ground. Personally, the more gridlock we could have, I'd welcome it. Way to go guys. Just keep on rolling over.
Yes, the nation is on it's way quickly to become Greece, but you know what Mr. Ryan? I see that not as a sign that people voted for compromise, I see it as people and fraud decided they want free crap more than they want a nation. So deal with it.
Tell that to the Democrats.
