Romeny would have been better off with Palin. All Ryan brings to the tickets is firing up Obama's base to stop the 3R's - Romney, Ryan, and Rand to keep them from ruining, ransacking, and ravaging the middle class

We are losing democracy in this country, the radical right-wing conservatives cannot win without lying, cheating and manipulating the vote. This country is turning into a banana republic promoted by right wing talk radio propaganda with the help of Fox News misdirecting the truth. This country is definitely sending the wrong message to the rest of the world that honesty is an illusion we have in this country. And that Corporation greed for controlled of the government versus the American elections is more important than democracy.

Ayn Rand she was also the progenitor of a sweeping “moral philosophy” that justifies the privilege of the wealthy and demonizes not only the slothful, undeserving poor but the lackluster middle-classes as well. Paul Ryan’s mentor

I would hope the American public understands the signifigance of a Romney/Ryan win. My only concern is there are millions of uneducated, unthinking voters out there. Let's just hope the strong Democratic base will hit the polls in extremely large numbers to re-elect President Obama. It is our only hope of recovering much which has been lost since the presidency of "good old" President Reagan, who was also a crappy governor when I live in CA.

I wonder if Romney has stopped to ponder the extreme nature of some of Ryan's Teabagger Zealots. Say Romney loses the election just like Bush did twice and finds himself in the White House. Some items I have read very recently indicate some of these Teabag Zealots are extremely excited that Mr Ayn Ryan would only be a heartbeat away from becoming leader of the free world. Not to worry though, by selecting Ryan, Romney has surrendered any hope of winning and at the same time has done us all a big favor by exposing the Republican Party for just what they have become, a big damn Koch machine with Teabaggers addicted to the drink.

Forecast: Romney is already President, the corporations are just letting us play the charade we call Democracy.

Our kids are counting on us to reverse austerity.

According to UNICEF, even in the world's richest countires, children remain “the most enduring victims” of the recession. In the last six years, 2.6 million more kids have fallen below the poverty line, and more than half of them live right here in the United States.

"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
