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.

We Don't Need Another Cable Giant.

Thanks to the FCC, two-thirds of our nation's high-speed internet subscribers may soon be under the control of just two companies.

According to a recent article over at CommonDreams.org, that agency has approved Charter Communication's $90 billion dollar takeover of two other cable providers: Time Warner and Bright House Networks.

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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
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."
