I’m not voting for Romney and this is just another reason not to.
The other week his speech about energy independence spoke of “North American energy independence” which means he sees the US, Canada and Mexico as one economy like the European Union.
The old Bush RINO North American Union plan, in other words.
A great device to break down borders and flood the US with cheap labor from the South. Business money behind Romney loves that idea.
Ryan speaks of “opportunity” with a “safety net.”
Ryan denounces Obama for a “welfare state” yet wants to keep it in place as a “safety net.” Entitlements and the 16 trillion dollar debt they feed remain.
Ryan’s plan to balance the budget 10 years plus out is not a conservative solution, its just a delaying tactic until the debt bubble bursts and politicians impose Greek style austerity measures on us.
They will raise taxes and cut entitlements at the same time.
There is no desire by the RINO GOP to cut entitlement programs at all.
I need to clarify my post.
The politicians will “cut” programs by 5 or 10 percent in austerity mode when the Greek time for this country comes, but will not cut completely the welfare state system we now have in place.
They need to do the latter, but not the former.
The Ryan plan to “balance the budget” ten years plus kicks the can down the road giving time for the calamity to reach us, then we get the tax hikes and spending cuts of austerity.
This is depressing. I’ve just made up my mind that I’m not going to vote in the presidential election and just vote for as many conservatives on the local and national level as possible. My state is deeply blue anyway so it doesn’t matter.
Obamacare needs to be repealed in its entirety - if people need insurance to cover pre-existing conditions the market will always find a way.
