Given the big-spending, high-taxing, debt-soaking nature of the modern “conservative” movement, should we be surprised that this plan pleasantly pontificates as supporting “self-reliant, American capitalism” while simultaneously defining exactly what the modern conservative movement has become?
Supporting these red-tie wearing big government stooges out to drain the productive while reading from Teleprompter A instead of teleprompter B is an insult to most “conservative’s” intelligence.
Here are some fun facts from Paul Ryan’s “Path to Prosperity” Budget Plan:
1) Increases Federal Government Tax Collections from $2.444 Trillion to $4.601 Trillion, a $2.157 Trillion, 88% Federal Tax Collection Increase.
2) Increases Federal Government Spending from $3.624 Trillion to $4.888 Trillion. A $1.264 Trillion, 35% Increase Federal Government Spending.
3) ADDS $4 Trillion to the National Debt.
Please forgive me if I don’t commence clapping and cartwheeling at the stark differences between Romney and Obombya during our chance to “Save America” in this election.
The woman can pull a crowd and is a legitimate contender.
I can’t help not liking something about her though (it’s her eyes…)
Let’s review some issues:
2) She appears to have some idea of State’s Rights and The 10th Amendment, pushing for a ban on same-sex marriage. Whether you are pro or anti gay-marriage, The States should be deciding, not the federal (capitalization intentional).
3) Ron Paul (sorry, do I appear biased?) has published nearly ten books detailing the rational reasons for a free society based on sound money, free economies, and an empowered people in control of a small government. Rep. Bachmann has none.
She’s slick, likeable, and says all of the right things. But please remember President George W. Bush ran on a humble foreign policy with small government and gave us The Department of Homeland Security and massive increases in the size and scope of government.
Will we stand on evidence, or on clever marketing and one-liners?
Or is that “right” actually slavery?
The infallibly insightful, historically accurate and painfully honest Tom Woods strikes again.
Mr. Woods cites this video from Sen. Ran Paul explaining how assuming this right indirectly enslaves the providers of the healthcare:
“I want to see the original long-form certificate of Donald Trump’s Republican registration.” Sen. Rand Paul.
Just when I thought I couldn’t be a bigger fan of The Paul Contigent, Rand nails born-again conservative D-Trump for his previous support of universal healthcare, high tarrifs, tax hikes, advocating a trade war with China, and luke warm opinion on the “North American Union” or NAFTA.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Thursday took a swipe at businessman Donald Trump, demanding his “Republican registration.”
While speaking at a breakfast with New Hampshire Republicans one day after “The Donald” visited the Granite State, Paul riffed off the potential GOP presidential candidate’s “birther” questions.
“I’ve come to New Hampshire today because I’m very concerned,” said Paul, according to The New York Times. “I want to see the original long-form certificate of Donald Trump’s Republican registration.”
Paul’s comments follow up on some GOP-aligned groups’ effort to discredit Trump as a conservative. The free-market Club for Growth has accused Trump of being a liberal for his previous support of universal healthcare and his desire to raise tariffs on China.
Trump, who is near the top of some polls, appeared in New Hampshire on Wednesday and spoke directly after President Obama released a copy of his long-form birth certificate to prove he was born in Hawaii, while calling people who question his citizenship “carnival barkers.”
Paul, a Tea Party favorite, said it would serve the GOP better to get behind a candidate who has better conservative credentials.
“Let’s look to Republicans who not only talk the talk, but walk the walk,” he said. “If we find the right candidate, I see no reason why we can’t win in 2012.”
Paul, whose father, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), is almost certain to run for president, has questioned Trump’s potential candidacy before.
Asked by CNN in February about Trump’s chances, the younger Paul said: “I think his chances are less than my father’s.”
