The countdown has begun to what will be the most important presidential election in decades, and perhaps in the modern history of the United States. Many undecided voters still question: Why is Mitt Romney the right man for the job?
Previously, we covered:
Reason #12: He is not Obama.
Reason #11: We know who Mitt Romney is.
Today, we look at Reason #10: Paul Ryan, VP.
Paul Davis Ryan was announced as Mitt Romney’s Vice-Presidential running mate on August 11, 2012. This was one of the smartest moves Romney could have made.
As Doug Powers stated, Paul Ryan is:
“One who has the gall to actually try to solve problems rather than just offer empty rhetoric or propose as a solution more of what caused the problem in the first place.”
Paul Ryan, born January 29, 1970, with his distinguished record has made clear the focus of the Romney campaign for presidency: The economy based on Conservative principles.
A graduate of Miami University in Ohio in Economics and Political Science, Ryan worked as an aide to several legislators (including Jack Kemp), and as a speech writer before winning election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1998 and serving as chairman of the House Budget Committee.
Ryan is best known—or according to Liberals, notoriously known—as the man who has developed budget plans to save Medicare via privatizing for citizens under the age of fifty-five (at a state level, rather than federal) “with a fixed payment to buy a private medical plan from a menu of coverage options,” (i.e. Ryan supports the Conservative ideology of less big, federal government and more viable options for the People).
Ryan, a philosophical disciple, of sorts, of Ayn Rand, once stated:
“What’s unique about what’s happening today in government, in the world, in America, is that it’s as if we’re living in an Ayn Rand novel right now. I think Ayn Rand did the best job of anybody to build a moral case of capitalism, and that morality of capitalism is under assault.”
Mitt Romney selected in his running mate a man who is a true Conservative, believes in free-market capitalism, state over federal government programs, the principles of the Founding Fathers, and most importantly of all, the People of this country. ALL people.
Ryan’s debate with Joe Biden allowed him, despite pathetically inadequate and skewed circumstances, to demonstrate his ideals, principles, and strength of character, as well.
By selecting Paul Ryan as VP, Mitt Romney has demonstrated his focus on the key issues we face as a nation (central to this election–our faltering economy), and his commitment to healing the wounds the Obama administration has wrought upon this country. He has demonstrated his commitment to unwavering strength in the face of adversity and to RIGHT action.
“People create their own questions because they are afraid to look straight. All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don’t sit looking at it – walk.” ~ Ayn Rand
