What do you guys know about Paul Ryan? I haven't researched him yet.
From the wiki description he seems to be a right leaning social and fiscal conservative. Anti-gay marriage, anti-abortion and some birth control(he's Catholic), pro-small government to the extent that he even wanted to privatize social security. He's against 'entitlement' programs and favors tax cuts for the higher wage earners and businesses, as well as eliminating certain taxes such as capital gains taxes.
He's basically your standard republican on everything.
I've heard that he isn't quite as fiscally conservative as many want him to be. I've not too impressed. America will fail because of not controoling money well. Paul won't help in this area.
