There have been headlines about Paul Ryan claiming he Wants to Help the Poor.
Paul Ryan’s anti-poverty agenda is a SHAM. His idea of helping the poor is to completely eliminate food stamps, social security, medicare and medicaid.
Five crazy things Paul Ryan actually believes
1. Some rapes are worse than others
2. Abortions are not OK, ever
3. Social Security is going bust and the only way to save it is to … destroy it
4. Tax cuts for the wealthy will fix the deficit
5. The best government is … small enough that you can drown it in a bathtub
Paul Ryan is also one of the Republicans who conspired “Just say no” to everything President Obama proposed on the very day he was inaugurated. Ryan violated his Oath of Office by doing so and should be prosecuted / removed from office.
ALL Republicans are in principle against government programs and Paul Ryan is no different. They vilify government programs by calling them “socialism” and “communism”.
Under president Bush, Republicans ran up a huge debt of 10 Trillion Dollars. Now, they want to balance the budget on the backs of the poor and middle class, by cutting food stamps, social security, medicare and medicaid while refusing to cut military spending. The cold war is over… we don’t need to spend trillions on the military any more. That money should be spent on the American people, the poor, the homeless, not bombs and wars.
A new study shows that despite the makers vs. takers rhetoric pushed by many Republicans, red states are the most dependent on the government.
As shown in this video, the United States has been spending 900 Million a week for the past 10 years in Afghanistan. Republicans has no problem spending trillions of dollars on the military, but they want to cut programs like food stamps, medicare, social security, etc which benefits regular Americans and the poor.
Republicans voted to cut 39 Billion Dollars from the Food Stamp program, but have no problem giving tax breaks to the wealthy.
Republicans constantly site the bible to rationalize their every day actions, yet they refuse to fund programs to feed the poor. Debate on the House floor over SNAP and healthcare sheds light on the GOP hypocrisy.
Wacko Religious Right hope to expedite The Apocalypse
Republicans Don’t Want you to Vote… here’s proof!
Paul Weyrich, “father” of the right-wing movement and co-founder of the Heritage Foundation, Moral Majority and various other groups states in this video that he doesn’t want everyone to vote. He still gives weekly strategy sessions to Republicans.
91-Year-Old Decorated WWII Veteran Targeted By Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Voter Purge
Florida Republicans took voter suppression to brazen extremes. After the 2010 election, Republican Gov. Rick Scott instructed Secretary of State Ken Browning to compile a massive database of alleged “non-citizen” voters. This resulted in a 91-year-old World War II veteran who won a Bronze star being told by the state of Florida to prove he is a citizen or be removed from voter roll.
Even Fox news acknowledges that Republicans has actively been involved in voter suppression. They state “In recent months, Latinos have been subjected to many forms of harassment: voter purges, voter ID laws, the threat of closing polls, targeting of nonprofit groups that conduct voter-registration drives, and automated calls designed to confuse people. At the same time, they are also facing a political witch-hunt in which proof of citizenship laws aimed at undocumented immigrants are used as the excuse to instill fear and confusion among Latino voters” in this article; http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2012/08/31/opinion-republicans-should-address-voter-suppression-concerns/
Voter Intimidation Billboards
Civil rights groups charged these intimidating billboards were meant to frighten lawful and confused voters away from the polls. Color of Change launched a petition demanding Clear Channel remove the ads, as the company has done previously with campaigns it deemed too controversial.
According to Reuters, Clear Channel belatedly invoked its policy against anonymous political advertising. When offered the choice between identifying itself and removing the ads, the “private family foundation” behind them chose to take them down, Clear Channel said.
The billboards appear in Cleveland, Columbus and Milwaukee. They popped up just as early voting began in Ohio. Reports of similar scare tactics, such as robo-calls and threatening flyers, designed to deter voters in black and Latino neighborhoods recur each election year as polls begin to open. As Brentin Mock has reported for Colorlines, early voting has been a crucial part of increasing black turnout and tea party groups in states like Ohio and Florida have worked to limit it, under the guise of combating voter fraud. There remains no meaningful evidence of voter fraud in early voting, or on Election Day for that matter.
Funder Of Billboards Exposed
The anonymous funder of more than 140 threatening billboards in black and Latino neighborhoods across Ohio and Wisconsin has chosen to take down the ads rather than identify itself, according to Reuters. The billboards played on the myth of “voter fraud,” invoking law and order images like a judge’s gavel over the words “Voter Fraud Is a Felony!” and listing jail time as punishment.
According to this article, Private Family Foundation is responsible for these billboards; http://www.onewisconsinnow.org/press/revealed-joint-investigation-by-one-wisconsin-now-thegrio-uncovers-anonymous-funder-of-voter-suppres.html

Barack Obama has been more of an American than MOST Republicans. He got osama bin laden and more al qaeda terrorists than BUSH or any other Republican.
Republican controled states has passed legislation to make it difficult for people to vote, especially older voters and miniorities. Seems they are doing eveything possible to SUBVERT and DESTROY Democracy. They are a DISGRACE to all those who fought and died for Democracy including the founders like George Washington
I think Republican should be rounded up and sent back in time to Natzi Germany.
