Paul Ryan- how much better is he than the rest?

I don't like Paul Ryan very much. I dislike politicians who don't vote their conscience. That's why it disappointed me very much that Paul Ryan voted for TARP. Also, I didn't appreciate how he treated the old man who asked him about Social Security. In the end, I'll be voting for Ron Paul if he gets the nomination and GJ if RP doesn't. However, let's take a look at Paul Ryan to see if he really is just "one of the rest." He's definitely not on par with Ron Paul, but he also isn't a standard RINO John Boehner type. The problem with Ryan is that he's too calculative, to the point of disenfranchising those who want honest and straight forward politicians. But I started this topic because I was surprised to find this article in which John Stossel talks about Paul Ryan: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/08/22/wanted-to-like-pau...

I think it's a good read and more encouraging than what we have read/seen in the past about Ryan. It shows that at least the Rep. party is (very) slowly moving in the right direction.

You mean, how much WORSE is he than the rest? Consider...

...Ryan wants to "reform" American entitlement programs on the backs of the very people who he FORCED TO PAY into those programs all their lives...


THAT is immoral.

So Ryan caters to the world central bankers while stiffing us poor fools who have had no choice in the matter.

Don't be bamboozled by this lying stooge for the world bankers.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Paul Ryan WAS voting his conscience by supporting TARP

Actions speak louder than words.

I suppose you could see it

I suppose you could see it that way, but it's more accurate to view Ryan as someone more concerned with his political future. What people do is not necessarily what they believe in doing (especially for politicians).

If someone doesn't do what they believe in doing, why should

anyone ever trust them or support them for political office?
