This old boy’s passion is being aroused for the first time since Ronald Reagan was president. That means it’s been a long time since I thought those people in Washington did anything worthwhile. In the years after RR left office the Republicans sickened me as much as did the Democrats. I’m still not moved by economic blah, blah, blah from either side, but there is ample reason to rejoice. Start with a video. Move the cursor to 8:56. and listen to Paul Ryan prime the old passion pump in 28 seconds out of a 13:13 Bret Baier interview:
SCHLAFLY: Republican Party platform best yetIt rejects a long list of United Nations treaties, including the treaty on women’s rights, the treaty on the rights of the child, the treaty on persons with disabilities, the arms trade treaty and the Law of the Sea treaty. The platform also rejects Agenda 21, including its proposal for a global tax and various U.N. declarations on the environment.
Altogether, the 2012 Republican Platform is an excellent document written by grass-roots conservatives. It is a true reflection of American values.
Reagan’s three-legged stool upheld
By Phyllis Schlafly - The Washington Times Monday, August 27, 2012
If Schlafly doesn’t give you a boost you’re probably a hardcore liberal.
In addition to Ryan and the party platform, you have Ron Paul stomping around out there. He’s the guy who meant it when nobody else was saying it:
Finally, there is an old chestnut that says “Money makes the mare go.” I never doubted the importance of economics and the economy. It’s just that I happen to believe that Americans should tell the mare where to go. Hint: It ain’t the United Nations.There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.
Julius Caesar Act 4, scene 3
