Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as a running mate opens the door to sweeping change in America that could bring full employment, an end to federal deficit spending, stability of social safety nets and a start down the long road to retiring our national debt. But to make these things happen, we need to further improve conservative (small government) thinking in both the house and the senate.
We've missed the chance to replace Doc Hastings with a conservative Representative but we still have opportunity to put another conservative in the U.S. Senate. A vote for Michael Baumgartner is a vote to replace Maria Cantwell. And please remind your friends and family that Obama Care is Cantwell Care.
