"CASTLE ROCK, Colo. -Paul Ryan squeezed in time on a four-stop, five-state day for a conference call with evangelical voters Sunday evening, issuing a warning about a second Obama term saying the president is putting the country on a "dangerous path" that compromises "Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values."
Evangelical leader Ralph Reed's influential group, the Faith and Freedom Coalition, hosted the call and Reed said "tens of thousands" of Evangelical Christians were listening in.
The GOP vice presidential nominee said in the "critical battleground states" it will make a "big difference" if people "are worried about…whether or not we're going to go down the path the president has put us on."
"It's a dangerous path," Ryan said on his opening remarks on the call, which has been rescheduled at least once. "It's a path that grows government, restricts freedom and liberty, and compromises those values, those Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values that made us such a great an exceptional nation in the first place."
Ryan talks about his Catholic faith frequently on the trail, but this evening he went into more detail when a caller from Florida asked him how his faith has given him and his family courage throughout the campaign. Ryan said it "sustains us on a daily basis" and "we pray throughout the day," noting he keeps a rosary in his pocket.
"It keeps us, keeps us humble, it keeps us strong, it keeps us in a great place, it gives us peace of mind," Ryan said. "First prayer I say every morning is the serenity prayer."
"Prayer"? Doesn't this guy worship at the foot of Ayn Rand? The last time I checked Rand was an atheist. Besides, good "Judeo Christians" do not lie about their marathon times , nor do they take away the safety net from those in need.
Still, politicians who talk about values scare me. Are they going to force their values on me? My values might not square with what their idea of "traditional" values should be.
Anyway, tomorrow is the day of reckoning. It's going to be a long night for some of you folks. If O wins I will watch FOX 24/7 just for laughs. If the robot wins, I will be here for you Obamaholics to vent. I have broad shoulders; you all can come right here for a good cry. But take heart, just think of all the fun we will have for the next four years.
One person who won't be happy if Obama losses is Rosie Lewis. Rosie will be voting for the first time. Rosie, bless her soul, is 99 years old. Yes, 99!
"A 99-year-old, Obama-loving Fort Myers, Fla., woman voted for the first time in her life after skipping 24 presidential elections, NBC 2 reports.
Rosie Lewis filled out her mail-in ballot in her modest Fort Myers home last week in her favorite chair with her Bible near by. Given that Lewis was 7-years-old when women were granted the right to vote in the U.S. under the 19th Amendment and was in her 50s when Jim Crow laws were abolished, her long wait to cast her ballot comes with a few historical explanations.
But now that she is voting in this crucial election, Lewis is making no secret of who she wants to win. “I love Obama,” she said." [Source]
So do a lot of other Negroes Miss Rosie.
Folks, regardless of who you vote for; just make sure that you go out and vote tomorrow. It's important to make your voice count before money (and those with it) renders you totally insignificant.
I won't tell you who I am voting for, but I will be crip- walking to the voting booth. :)
