Ryan’s Express.

I really like this guy… extremely articulate, crystal-clear thinking. Paul Ryan’s presentation of the Republican budget proposal was a blockbuster. It was just exactly what the Tea Party Patriots have been demanding all along. Over six trillion dollars in cuts, over the next ten years. The left is in absolute apoplexy.

It’s absolutely hysterical watching them sputter and stutter, and drag out their shopworn 1960s slogans. The same old Marxist saws we’ve heard every single time someone wants to enact some meaningful reform… “We’re starving old people and li’l children”… “we’re forcing granny to fight the kitty for his salmon dinner”. It’s not going to be nearly as productive for them this time.

The American electorate has had plenty of time to examine the Marxists’ language and tactics during the regimes’ mad rush to absolute power. We’ve seen them go through the routine time and again… from granny and the kids, to minorities, to sob-stories for the illegal aliens. We’ve watched as the Democratic Party suborned the democratic process through lies and trickery… so sure of their superiority that they no longer bothered to cloak their evil.

Well, we were watching… and waiting… and we were heard loud and clear last November. Now, this is the Patriots’ (like Ryan) clearheaded approach to the problem which treated less seriously will, not might, completely destroy this country. These measures are clear and very well considered. If enacted they would eliminate the debt by 2020 or so.

They are by no means as draconian as the DeMarxists are trying to make out. The federal government is so huge and so bloated you could carve away half of it and never know the difference. Think about it… what function does the federal government have in most people’s day to day existence? For most of us it’s very little, and for the most part government is an impediment rather than an asset. I saw a ‘Tweet’ that asked, “If non-essential services can be cut with little effect, why do we pay for them in the first place?” Why, indeed?

Too bad that Ryan won’t run for president. But then, he promised his constituents and he’s honoring that promise. He is, after all, a man of honor. Something we could use a lot more of.
