Congressman Paul Ryan Latest to Call For Truce on Pro-Life, Social Issues
Washington, DC -- Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin became the latest potential presidential candidate and Republican with a national profile to call for a "truce" on social issues. He joins Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and Mississippi Gov. Hailey Barbour, who called for Republicans to back down on pro-life issues.

Then I will have a moratorium on voting for them.
Sell our souls for riches?
Sorry, this Republican will not participate in any “truce” on pro-life issues.
Why backdown when you are winning? The majority of Americans are prolife guys.
There goes another one off the “Short List”
Thirteen pieces of silver should suffice.
Not only no but F NO!
Bad move Ryan.
Does the other side (the pro-DEATH side) E-V-E-R stand down for any reason?
The field is narrowing.
Not that Ryan was a choice to realistic voters, but many of the Misogynyist class were spewing his name.
When you start building on an unsound foundation, no matter how big and intricate the building, it cannot stand the test of time and/or storm.
Why would the alternative party wish to move further in the same direction?
That they are willing to compromise shows they are not as committed.
to call for a “truce” on social issues.
Answer: NO! HELL NO!
1) Abortion: An unalienable right from our Creator is LIFE! If life is denied there is no opportunity for liberty or pursuit of happiness.
2) Homosexual marriage: Also...The push for gay marriage is merely a wedge to silence and discriminate against and oppress Christians in the workplace, schooling, and all other social venues.
If Paul Ryan can’t understand that then he is a flaming idiot!
> “Does the other side (the pro-DEATH side) E-V-E-R stand down for any reason?”
Ryan isn’t “standing down,” he just never really was pro life.
Morality is measured mainly by TWO things: ethics in business, which you are for, and ethics in sexuality: which you seem to have problems with.
The trouble is that these things are NOT separable, because at the core of business ethics is respect for contract and honesty.
Marital infidelity breaches both. The products of infidelity are the fruit of a poison tree, we bring them into our world with too heavy a burden forever attached onto them. Abortions and birth control are no real cure — for abortions are like murder, and leave an indelible mark on the persona and blight on souls of the parents. Birth control? Well that is lesser a direct mark, but it induces an attitude of callousness and selfishness — the hallmark of Sodom.
Abortions create a great despair of constant victimhood in a culture, birth control allows selfishness, combined with infidelity: no culture can survive these very long.
And look! Just as our culture tolerated and then celebrated sexually libertine amorality, so too did our books go bad. That’s right! The two morally-based areas: sex and business — are inseparably joined.
Another fake ‘Pro-Lifer’ bites the dust!
Sell our souls for riches?
I am reminded of the bible story where the devil tempts Jesus. The devil offers Jesus all the world and its kingdoms if Jesus will just bow down and worship him.
Well...What Paul Ryan wants to do is worship the devil in exchange for power.
I mean, come on. We have opposition that isn’t quiting and in fact is doubling down every time you turn around. Look at California where the liberals are thwarting the people’s decision to ban gay marriage.
The opposition is not stopping, how possibly can those in favor of traditional rights? I say this as a person who ranks fiscal issues and defense issues as top priorities, but I recognize the constitutionality issues in in front of us on social values.
Doesn’t realize that the Senate Democrats are forcing votes TOMORROW on the following moral issues:
Don’t ask, don’t tell - homosexual rights
Government funding of abortions in military hospitals
illegal alien amnesty - DREAM act
Thirty pieces of silver! Thirteen would baarly buy you a recording of Al Franken discussing Perry Mason re-runs with Sonia Sotomayor these days.
Same old s#@+ from the pubbies. Just can’t we all get along!! One thing you have to understand about the RATS they never back down. There was a Jewish carpenter more than 2000 years ago who didn’t back down.
Hmmm Do I want to spend eternity in Heaven or Hell
Tough Choice NOooooooo. There are issues that can not be compromised.Being Pro-life is one of them. We are creatures deciding who live and who dies is not one of our inalienable rights! That is especially for innocents.
I’m concerned about this development and slowly moving toward alarmed.
Horrendously incorrect thinking. NEVER abandon the key moral principles...NEVER!!!
Much prayer STILL needed for this nation....
The GOP no longer sees abortion as a successful wedge issue to corral votes. The first appointment of GOP favorite, Gov Christie, was his veep. He chose a pro choicer. Pro-life is no longer a GOP exclusive, as one by one, they ‘come out of the closet’.
“Truce” means “Let the Democrats do whatever they want”
“Truce” really means “surrender”.
That might be acceptable if the legt radicals could be counted on not to push. But they can't.
The social issues are far more important than the fiscal ones, as they fuel the increase in spending.
The fiscal issues are just symptoms, the social issues are the root cause.
Lower Taxes and Fewer Abortions playing chicken again.
Maybe when Religious Blacks and Pro Abortion collide in the Dem party.
Otherwise, it’s a two-fer.
On a moral level, abortion and slavery are the same because they both consider the victims subhuman and owned by someone. Mr. Ryan is selling his soul out for power, what a very sad thing to witness.
yeah....how did that work out for Him? He was crucified.
We Tea Partiers are a diverse crowd; some are fiscal conservatives, or libertarians, some are social conservatives, who happen to also be fiscal conservatives. But NONE of us will have a prayer of getting any of our issues heard, unless there are people in the actual positions to do anything about them.
Most of the primaries are over, and the candidates have been chosen for this time around. Lets rally behind the most conservative of the candidates, which, for the vast majority, will mean the Republican one. If we can take over the majorities in the House and Senate, we can either roll back, or stop in their tracks, the changes the Dems wanted to force on us.
When that happens, it will be time for we who are also social conservatives to start working on finding candidates who value life, and are willing to fight against the cultural decline we've seen over the last 40 years, in addition to still upholding the issues of less government and lower taxes.
One of the reasons we've seen such a change in our country is that liberals were willing to work for those changes incrementally. That meant that some elections, they had to put up with someone who wasn't ideologically pure, but would increase the Dem majority in Congress to the point that they had enough actual VOTES to push through the changes they wanted made. That's one lesson we conservatives need to learn. We will NEVER get what we want, if we hold our candidates to such unreasonable standards of purity that they will never be elected by a majority of voters. I'm not saying vote for pro-abortion candidates, because I certainly don't, but don't reject those who could be our allies but for some squishiness on homosexuality or immigration, which, while important, aren't anywhere near as important as the basic issue of life.
“Life, Liberty, and property.”
Good grief ... its the first one. Conservatives value all three — liberals devalue all three. “Moderates” cherry-pick.
Time for Mitch to retire when his term ends.We really don't need 'tax and spend Republicans".
No...I answer to G-d Almighty; not to some cadre of earth-bound politicians.
Hey Paul....NO.........can you hear me!
Yes, they will sell their souls for riches or political office. BTW, it isn’t a “truce”; it is surrender. This is why the entire R “tent” needs to be cleaned out.
> “how did that work out for Him? He was crucified.”
Are you not thankful that he was?
And He rose again,
I’d say it worked out pretty well.
We are conservatives because we pledge our lives, fortunes and Sacred Honor to uphold the principles of the Declaration of Independence. We are fiscal conservaties BECAUSE OF those principles. Without those principles there is NO BASIS to be a "fiscal conservative." A "fiscal conservative" is a RINO who wants to spend less of the fruit of your labor than a liberal.
As Lincoln said:
I have often inquired of myself, what great principle or idea it was that kept this Confederacy so long together. It was not the mere matter of the separation of the Colonies from the motherland; but that sentiment in the Declaration of Independence which gave liberty, not alone to the people of this country, but, I hope, to the world, for all future time. It was that which gave promise that in due time the weight would be lifted from the shoulders of all men. This is a sentiment embodied in the Declaration of Independence. Now, my friends, can this country be saved upon that basis? If it can, I will consider myself one of the happiest men in the world, if I can help to save it. If it cannot be saved upon that principle, it will be truly awful. But if this country cannot be saved without giving up that principle, I was about to say I would rather be assassinated on this spot than surrender it.
LIFE: AN UNALIENABLE RIGHT
I had high hopes for this guy.
Go to the BACK of the line, Ryan
And, is there a meaningful difference between the two?
All this is very disappointing.
And my friend from WI was banned from FR for calling Ryan a RINO last year!
Yeah...it did. But not so good for the thousands of Christians that became objects of blood sport in the Roman Colosseum during the period that followed.
Well put - when one can easily walk away from the reponsibility of parenting, it's real easy to walk out on a mortgage.
Marriage contract, loan contract - both broken like it was a walk in the park.
Much like a democrat on taxes.. democrats just LUV taxes..
You know... BAD taxes come from rich republicans and good taxes come from UNrich democrats..
But they are with Jesus now, and they have received the ultimate reward. I hope that I’m never put to such a test, but I hope that The Good Lord would give me the spiritual strength to endure so that I can spend eternity with a joy not to be found on this earth.
