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.

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

Thom plus logo

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
