Mr. Ryan Goes to Washington
Paul Ryan's VP nomination acceptance speech was the voice of We The People.
While on vacation at a Gulf Coast condo, the owner of the building looked me in the eye and said, "Lloyd, as a nation, we need to believe again. We need to believe that the people we put in office are good honorable people committed to doing what is best for our country." Paul Ryan is the answer to the elderly condo owner's dream.
What struck me most watching Ryan brilliantly deliver his speech was an unmistakable sense of wholesomeness which emanated from the man. It is the same quality possessed by Sarah Palin, which is as repulsive to the modern Democratic Party and mainstream media as showing Dracula the cross.
Remarkably, the Democratic Party has become so infected with an anti-American, socialistic, and anti-God agenda that traditional American wholesome principles and values are vehemently attacked and labeled "extreme."
According to the Democratic Party and mainstream media, rejecting Obama's mandate to force Christians to fund abortions is branded a "war on women." Americans who do not object to homosexual civil unions but believe that "marriage" should remain defined as between a man and a woman are punished and branded bigots and haters by the Democrats and their sycophant media.
Unbelievably, Obama is historic in two categories. He is America's first mixed-race president and the first president whom the mainstream media declares it racist to criticize or disagree with in any way. The passionate mantra of the mainstream media has always been, "We must speak truth to power!" Well, apparently, it does not apply when there is a black man occupying the Oval Office.
And speaking of "occupying," Ryan pointed out in his speech how the Obama administration (and the mainstream media, I might add) rallied around the OWS thugs while demonizing small business owners -- the people that make our country work and employs most Americans.
Ryan called Mitt Romney a man of high morals. Mentioning the "M" word was like throwing holy water on the Democrats and mainstream media. I heard them screaming through my TV, Stop! Stop! It burns! It BURNS!
As expected, the Democrats and the media have launched their Paul Ryan-is-an-extremist-racist-nut campaign. Think of their campaign to destroy Paul Ryan as "Sarah Palin Two" -- only this time, it is a wholesome, articulate, bright white male they hope to brand as the dumbest, most extreme VP nominee ever.
Still, Americans that watched his speech on TV with open minds and hearts "felt" Paul Ryan. They sensed that we are in a battle of good versus evil, of wholesomeness versus a diminished America and Godless society.
To the elderly small businessman condo owner, longing for politicians we can believe in again, Paul Ryan represents a major step in the right direction. Go Romney/Ryan -- America needs you!
