So Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan as his running mate. Well, sure. They’re pals, right? Romney’s already conscripted Ryan’s budget plan; why not take the person behind it, too?
More than ever, it’s now clear that a vote for Romney is a vote for the puppet masters behind his campaign. Nothing in Romney’s background suggests a predilection towards the tea party, yet his selection of Ryan is the quintessential tea party choice.
So who’s calling the shots in his campaign? Judging from the money raised by the various PACs supporting him, it’s none other than America’s Republican elite, led by the Koch brothers, Harold Clark Simmons and Sheldon Adelson.
Be careful, America. This is an important election. Set yourselves up to become the pawns of the rich, or create a world that works for all of us. Your choice.
