Firstly, Ryan's not VEEP yet.

Secondly, the ONLY power a VEEP has is to break ties in the Senate, NOTHING ELSE.

So I don't know why some people are getting so upset about his nomination.

And for the record, as I have said countless times here before, as a devout church-going Protestant, I would NEVER vote for a Mormon or a Roman Catholic for ANY political office.

Because the VP Candidate says a lot about the Presidential Candidate, and reflects upon the Presidential Candidate a lot. Plus, as they say, this puts someone one heartbeat away from being President. There are still people alive today who remember the day that Reagan was shot, and Kennedy was assassinated. Romney could drop dead of a heart attack in his first year in office and Ryan would be his replacement.

That is why the VP Candidate matters.

So you don't vote for Catholics, or Mormons, but Muslims are O K, probably not Jews. Fortunately in this country we have freedom of religon, and don't need your permission to attend any service we so choose.

Well, FaFoxy, you're not very bright. If you can't vote for a Mormon or a Catholic, you might as well go out on election day and pull the lever for Obama. By the way, Martin Luther didn't preach a gospel of hate, did he? What exactly are you as Protestant protesting?!?

As I have said countless times here before, I'm a Libertarian and will be voting fpr the Libertarian candidate for POTUS.

I would never vote for The Obamaniac because he's a Stalinist.

Libertarian: lactose intolerant, vegan, fan of interpretive dance, drives a Prius, says "I never watch TV (as if TV is a BAD thing), I READ!", eats soy ice cream, plays boring unpopular classical music, goes to a new age church, carries his own shopping bag, moves constantly but claims to be a New Yorker despite complaining about it constantly, incredibly opinionated...that's our FaFoxy.

Ryan is a great guy. Remember the alternative is more OBAMA?? Yikes. No body wants THAT unless they have a civic death wish.

That's a non sequitur, you sick, lying freeek. No one's saying you can't go to your house of worship of hate before your midday meal at Chick-fil-A, m to sa.

The issue is theocratic bigotry put into our civil laws. And you said yourself "religious freedom." That means no theocracy.

I had to think about this a long time. I would have to say after 67, because:

1. I wasn't even a teenager then.

2. I didn't own a radio til 68, so I wasn't even listening to the radio at that age.

So you would rather have two rich, morally bankrupt, thieves in charge. You do realize they are going to raise taxes, and gut the government and all social programs, then give the money to all of their rich lobbiest friends right. I would much rather have a moral, careing Obama in charge instead of wallstreet thieves.
