"Real Americans". Direct from Sarah Palin's playbook. Didn't work out so well for the "Quitta from Wasilla" now did it.

If you want real change right now then stop voting for the corruption of the two party system! A vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for freedom and liberty!

I do not believe Barack Obama loves America. He has spent his time apologizing for America, telling Americans how they need to change everything about the way they live their lives and railing against the systems that have made America the great country she is today.

Quite frankly, I think Obama sees America as a project, as a fixer-upper if you will. He things he's making things better, but he's just making them worse. He is truly Bush's third term.

If you want to see someone who loves America, look at Paul Ryan. Take a look at Mitt Romney. If you're going to make America better, it must start with a love of country at your very core.
Obama has not demostrated that he has it.

GOP VP Pick Paul Ryan Backs Dismantling New Deal.²

As Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney names Rep. Paul Ryan of
Wisconsin as his vice-presidential running mate,[Democracy Now! Speaks]
with two Wisconsinites about the seven-term congressmanıs record and how his
views are influenced by the controversial philosopher Ayn Rand. "This is not
necessarily a foolish choice by Romney," says John Nichols, political writer
for The Nation magazine. "It is an extreme choice. And it does define the
national Republican Party toward a place where the Wisconsin Republican
Party is, which is very anti-labor, willing to make deep cuts in education,
public services, and, frankly, very combative on issues like voter ID and a
host of other things that really go to the core question of how successful
and how functional our democracy will be." Ryan is chairman of the House of
Representatives Budget Committee and architect of a controversial budget
plan to cut federal spending by more than $5 trillion over the next 10
years. "Ryan gets a lot of mileage for understanding, so-called, the budget
and economics," says Matthew Rothschild, editor and publisher of The
Progressive magazine. "But if you look closely, he doesnıt really get it."
Democrats argue Ryanıs planned Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security reform
would essentially dismantle key components of the social safety net.

Almost Half of Americans Die Close to Penniless: A new economic study has
found that nearly half of Americans reach the end of their lives with
virtually no assets, relying entirely on government programs like Social
Security, Medicare and Medicaid. The results indicate that any changes to
these safety net programs would indeed threaten the welfare of older
Americans. About 46 percent of senior citizens in the United States have
less than $10,000 in financial assets when they die. Most of these people
rely almost totally on Social Security payments as their only formal means
of support, according to the newly published study, co-authored by James
Poterba of MIT, Steven Venti of Dartmouth College, and David A. Wise of
Harvard University.- Sarah Seltzer.*

Here's a gaffe for you. Ryan rails against stimulus, votes against, but then sends letters asking for the money to help companies in his district. But that's not all folks! Then he lies about sending the letters and when he gets called on it, he says, Ah Ah Ah I forgot about those letters. Now that's a gaffe! And a hypocrite! Is there no end to their BS. The guy probably knows the prologue from Atlas Shrugged by heart, but can't remember sending letters out begging for money he opposed. The "Adult" in the room. In sheep's clothing. BaaaaBaaaaBAaaaa
