On August, 15, GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, spoke at his Victory Rally at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio to, Ryan was promoting his running mate presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s plan for future America.
According to Ryan, the Romney-Ryan team is determined to fix America’s financial and economic situation by dealing with the issues head on while preserving classic American ideals.
“Our founders created this vision and our veterans secured this vision,” Ryan said. “Here is our commitment to you: we will not duck the tough issues, we will lead. We will not blame others, we will take responsibility and we will not try to transform or replace our founding principles, we will reapply [them].”
America’s rising debt is becoming a burden for America’s young generation, according to Ryan.
“This economy is really bad for young Americans,” Ryan said. “Half of all college graduates are either working at jobs they didn’t train for or not working at all. Half. And they’re swallowing in debt with ever higher rising tuition. … We need growth [and] we need opportunity. …We need jobs [and] we are going to offer [America] solutions.”
Ryan said that in the end, Ohio will play a key role in dictating our country’s future.
“This is no ordinary election,” Ryan said. “The Buckeye state could very well determine the future of our country for a very long time. This is the kind of election we will look back upon as the moment our country went this way or that way.”
According to Ryan, The Romney-Ryan team’s first objective is to get America its jobs back.
“We are here to offer you a clear choice,” Ryan said. “This is a very, very clear contrast for our country to make. … And let me tell you this, we can do this. We can turn this thing around. We can get this economy growing. We can keep our government limited. We can keep ourselves free. We can get the job done. We can get people back to work. We can grow this economy and turn opportunity back on. Together, we can get this done.”
