Paul Ryan's Speech

Was spending some time with family tonight, so not much time for blogging. I made it a point to catch Paul Ryan's speech. It was the speech I wish I was able to give myself. It made the points that needed to be made about crony capitalism and the poverty of thinking that is the ACA. However, I know I'm not a typical voter, so I wondered if it really connected.

The best line in his speech was about the so called Affordable Care Act:
Obamacare comes to more than two thousand pages of rules, mandates, taxes, fees, and fines that have no place in a free country.
The way he emphasized the words free country got my attention. It is that freedom which is under assault, and the left refuses to apologize for its assault on our freedom. Ostensibly, they claim that it is Republicans who want to put "y'all back in chains." But their policies are the true threat to freedom.
