How did we ever get to the point where policies designed to turn us into a European-style socialist nation are considered mainstream and sensible by the left and the media but policies that are designed to restore the Constitution, it's principles and plain old common sense are labeled "extreme" by those same people? It's Orwellian. And intentional.

It happened because America's conservatives were taught to believe that it's okay to vote for a liberal as long as he doesn't identify himself as a Democrat.

I believe that conservatives should vote for the most conservative candidate on the ballot for any and all offices. If you give your precious ballot to a less conservative candidate, you'll end up with a more liberal nation. If you doubt it, look around you.

Mitt Romney made a smart executive decision selecting Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate. Ryan's genial personality, serious policy wonkery and political courage have dazzled conservatives and won respect even in a few liberal circles. Romney scores points for political courage as well. He knew liberal politicians and journalists would talk in punishing terms about Ryan's budget ideas.

They did not disappoint. It took only minutes for the onslaught to begin. At the same time liberal media outlets acknowledge the country now faces two opposing visions of government, why is only the Romney-Ryan vision "polarizing" and "extreme"?
