Roseville, CA — Never has the words “demagogue” and “demagoguery” ever been so overused during an election season like the 2012 U.S. Presidential elections. And unfortunately for GOP Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan, these words have been associated to him like toothpaste to a toothbrush. Is there a basis to accuse him of being a rabble-rouser or is this a plot of the Obama campaign to demonize and discredit his proposed platforms?
Prior to the selection of Wisconsin House Representative Paul Ryan, President Obama and Republican Party Presidential candidate Mitt Romney were like sorority girls in a catfight; busy trading barbs with each other and avoiding the major issues that needed to be addressed like tax reforms, fiscal spending, et cetera, et cetera.
Enter, Wisconsin First District Congressman Paul Ryan, known to be an ideas man and extreme right conservative, if he leans more to the right any further, he’ll fall off the face of the Earth. But when he came in, the campaigns of both party had to face the music and address the issues that are pressing the economy of the country to dire straits. The Republican Party was able to overhaul their focus and the agenda that they want to present to the American people like their plans for fiscal spending, taxes, and Medicare.
The GOP vice presidential candidate has been noted in coming up with the Path to Prosperity Proposal which outlines a long-term plan to solve the budget deficit but in the process make drastic cuts against Medicare and provide more tax cuts for the wealthy.
