Let us, then, with courage and confidence pursue our own Federal and Republican principles, our attachment to union and representative government. Kindly separated by nature and a wide ocean from the exterminating havoc of one quarter of the globe; too high-minded to endure the degradations of the others; possessing a chosen country, with room enough for our descendants to the thousandth and thousandth generation; entertaining a due sense of our equal right to the use of our own faculties, to the acquisitions of our own industry, to honor and confidence from our fellow-citizens, resulting not from birth, but from our actions and their sense of them; enlightened by a benign religion, professed, indeed, and practiced in various forms, yet all of them inculcating honesty, truth, temperance, gratitude, and the love of man; acknowledging and adoring an overruling Providence, which by all its dispensations proves that it delights in the happiness of man here and his greater happiness hereafter — with all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people? Still one thing more, fellow-citizens — a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.
-Thomas Jefferson from his 1st Inaugural address-
Paul Ryan may well be the last boy scout standing here, as pointed out by Rush Limbaugh on August 13th. We finally have somebody on our side of the ticket that truly knows what is needed for this country and why Obama’s ideas are bankrupting our nation. HE KNOWS IT.
And from the democrats? What’s that smell? It smells like desperation doesn’t it? Sweet desperation and this excites me to no end to know that the party who has actively kept us in this recession much longer that we should have been, now sees desperate measures as they’re only chance of survival in November.
When we look at what the different players in this coming election say, it can be brought into focus by telling what they are for.
The Democrats and Obama say that we need to share the wealth. Don’t let someone have all the riches. They didn’t build they’re businesses themselves. They had help. The government helped them by building the highways and infrastructure that they used to get their businesses going. So, to share the wealth, they need to give some back.
The Republicans/conservatives say, get rid of the red tape that stands in the way of job growth, so we can give everyone the opportunity to make some of that wealth. Everyone has the opportunity to be successful.
But with Paul Ryan, the liberals are doing everything they can to make it look like he is a radical and a destroyer. He ‘will destroy social security as we know it’ hurting ‘seniors in the process’. What they do not get is, it is Obama’s policies and the policies of the left for the last 50 years that have hurt this nation to the point that Social Security has to be fixed. They have taken from the piggy bank of SS for other things that they wanted to do, and now there isn’t any money left, so something has to be done.
They are saying that Ryan is planning on cutting billions from Medicare. But do they know that Obama has done the same thing? The difference is, Obama will destroy Medicare as it is, and in the future we will not have it to fall back on. Ryan’s plan on the other hand is to save Medicare, and as found on Rush’s site,‘A year ago, the New York Times compared Paul Ryan’s plan with what the federal government workers in Congress has. It was a story on April 18th, 2011. They note that Ryan has said the same thing. In an op-ed piece, the Wall Street Journal, Mr. Ryan wrote: “Starting in 2022, new Medicare beneficiaries will be enrolled in the same kind of health care program that members of Congress enjoy.” Now, the New York Times story, I just had a quick scan of it. They tried to nitpick what they say are differences. But it looks pretty much like Ryan’s plan is very close, if not identical, to what Congress has.’
Ryan said about his plan, “”Starting in 2022, new Medicare beneficiaries will be enrolled in the same kind of health care program that members of Congress enjoy. Future Medicare recipients will be able to choose from a list of guaranteed coverage options, and they will be given the ability to choose a plan that works best for them. This is not a voucher program, but rather a premium-support model. A Medicare premium-support payment would be paid, by Medicare, to the plan chosen by the beneficiary, subsidizing its cost.”
So who is trying to save Medicare? The democrats or the Republican’s. Who will bring this country back? If you listen to the media and the democrats, it is the democrats. But, if you listen to your common sense, on what has been happening over the last several years, you will know that the democrats have no desire to save anything of this nation. NO DESIRE AT ALL.
May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.
