MEANS: Romney-Ryan ticket is history-shaping choice

Americans deciding the world’s economic future

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

If Mr. Obama wins, investment capital will stay exactly where it is — on the sidelines. The U.S. economy will worsen, as will Europe’s and Asia’s. The U.S. budget deficit and debt will skyrocket. There will be no way to dig ourselves out so we will become bankrupt. Unemployment will go up. The poor and young looking for jobs and a future will suffer even more. Within the next few years, Medicare, Social Security and Obamacare will go bankrupt, and extreme measures will need to be taken. There will be social unrest, and civil liberties will be curtailed. No wonder they are building so many drones.

That is the “radical,” “nerdy” — actually, terrifying — warning Mr. Ryan is trying to get across to Americans.

Saul Alinsky would vote for Mr. Obama — he would love the Obama future. Americans would not. They would vastly prefer Mr. Ryan‘s.
