Paul Ryan – Hunt For Mitt October???

Since he was so rude to Britain on his visit to London I have been following the Mitt’s progress in the hope he would fall flat on his face a certain amount of arrogance is not good in foreign policy it might sell ok inside the USA but not a good way to make friend and allies.

Imagine how gleeful I was when he picked Paul Ryan (is there a prophesy here?).  I immediately thought of  Tom Clancy’s Ryan destroying everyone above him including the Congress and Supreme court in total obviously the Mitt has not caught on to this, or perhaps he is wondering why Mr Ryan wanted to be his running partner or again perhaps he does not read Clancy books.

These puns aside would America really want a ‘Ryan’ for Vice President?  Would he be any different and look after the needs of the American people? After all Vice President can lead to President…

Is Ryan one of the men who have broken Congress? and Congress is most definitely broken.  If Congress cannot agree and is fragmented how do you fix it? If other parts of the American Constitution does not work an amendment can be passed by Congress but if  Congress is not working how do you fix that. No one seems to know the answer so Congress is broken!  It has been broken by men and women who cannot get their own way, whether it is deliberate or ‘accidental’ they have all, including Mr Ryan, had a hand in it.

These are the people who would see others die for lack of medical care because they could not afford it. These are the people who instead of taking care of the old, poor and children, are quite prepared to see them die just so they can keep Congress fractured and a White President sitting there whether or not he is competent.  Obviously not every Congressman is like this, but they are still part of the fracture even if they are on the side of the American people.

So who you wonder, mends Congress? Who sets the bones of America?  Is there an ambulance chasing after Congress making sure they have ‘medical’ care? You see if Congress is broken, so is America.  It shows the fragmentation of American society. I wonder if this is what the American people really want a broken country?  No, I am sure they do not, but it’s what some of  those who sit in Congress want.  Again whilst they are squabbling and trying to score points over each other, they are not representing the people of America.  But hey, what if the country is suffering, what if people are living in tents, this is America the caring country, the people may not have any jobs, no healthcare and be starving,  so what, Congress is alright mate they have a nice secure future!

So we return to my original question,  is this a Hunt for Mitt October or the Real and Present Danger for you know who?  Watch out watch out there’s a Ryan about.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
