I have advocated that Democrats cross over in the 1st Congressional District of WI and vote against Paul Ryan. That means voting for his opponent, Paul Nehlen in the primary. This is our best chance to eliminate the scourge on our country that Paul Ryan has brought us.
As John Nichols recently pointed out, Mr. Ryan has been completely shamed. His short tenure as speaker has absolutely exposed his many weaknesses and shown him to be a coward in every sense of the word.
As Charley Pierce from Esquire Magazine says of Paul Ryan - "Biggest. Fake. Ever."
Unfortunately the mainstream media keeps painting Pink Slip Paulie as a centrist, intelligent savior. He has been dubbed the "GOP Ideas guy" too many time to count.
However, what they fail to ever tell you(how many times have the MSM done stories on Paul Ryan and had no counter balance?) is that he has actually done nothing in his time in Congress.
Can Mr. Ryan himself compromise in the interest of getting legislation signed into law? Many in both parties have come to doubt it after 17 years in which the 46-year-old congressman from Wisconsin has held increasingly influential positions in the House, with Republicans holding a majority for all but four of those years.
This is, after all, someone whose self-described bold ideas have never gained liftoff; he has rarely taken the really bold step of writing them into legislation, with specifics. “He has actually proposed three — total, three — bills that have become law in his entire career dating back to 1999,” said David T. Canon, chairman of the political science department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. One named a post office in Wisconsin, a second changed taxes on arrows used by deer hunters, and the third, this year, established a $3 million presidential commission on “evidence-based policy making.”
A quick recap, of his 17 years, he has been in the majority 13 of them and has passed a whopping THREE bills. In a huge bit of irony, the last bill that the ideas guy passed, was a $3 Million dollar STUDY on how to use evidence to actually make policy.
Let that sink in for a minute!
It is absolutely time to evict Mr. Ryan from his lofty perch where he makes over $150,000/yr plus Cadillac benefits to name a Post Office every twenty years!
Please join me in supporting and voting for Paul Nehlen on August 9th*!!
edit note:* Once we eliminate the threat to the nation that Paul Ryan is, then we can go back to actually deciding on the issues between the Democrat and Mr. Nehlen. There is NO law that says who you vote for in the primary you have to also vote for in the general!
Lets look forward to bringing Paul Ryan home so he can be buying his $350 bottles of wine in Janesville and stimulating his hometown economy that desperately needs it!!!
Here is Paul Ryan helping drive General Motors out of Janesville!
