Exactly what "Shared Principles" do we have with Romney and Ryan?Submitted by billybernardo on Thu, 08/23/2012 - 22:28
The idea of Kurt Bills switching just prior to the convention is setting me off, though I know it isn't any worse than Rand.
What ticks me off is this idea of "shared principles" that we supposedly have with Romney and Ryan. I would like to know exactly what these principles are. Let's think about what we are talking about, and who is sharing principles with whom.
Foreign policy? Obviously, Obama and Romney and the majority of both parties share the same interventionist, unconstitutional foreign policy. We share nothing with either.
Bailouts? We share nothing with them here. Both parties love bailouts when the rubber hits the road. We share nothing with either.
Obamacare? Obviously, if you listen to what Romney has said in the past, they really have no disagreement there. We share nothing with either.
Cutting into the deficit or raising the debt ceiling? Again, neither really is serious about it as proven by the Ryan budget. Just curious, bt why wasn't the direct question asked at any GOP debate, "Will you seek to raise the debt ceiling?" We share nothing with either.
Abortion or "gay" marriage? The Ron Paul people, it seems, are split on this, though I do think no matter how one looks at the issue itself, any honest RP supporter would say that Roe should be overturned and that marriage should be a state issue, "for better of worse." I feel that the Romney people would lean toward the federal govt fixing on the federal level against gay marriage and that Obama would lean toward the federal govt fixing on the federal level for gay marriage. Either way, both men are for a big govt solution. We share nothing with either.
So where are these "shared principles?" I really want to know!
