And it is for that reason, many analysts say, that he chose Paul Ryan to be his running mate.<br /> <br /> Ryan, 42, is a congressman from Wisconsin and a staunch conservative, both fiscally and socially. He believes in giving fertilised embryos full rights – essentially equating abortion with murder. And he is a climate change skeptic.<br /> <br /> Among other things, Ryan proposed privatising social security in 2004, supports replacing Medicaid with a voucher programme, and as congressman voted for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.<br /> <br /> He voted to give bailout money to banks and the US auto industry, voted against a law that demanded equal pay for women, co-sponsored a bill that would ban in vitro fertilisation (IVF), and co-sponsored a bill to ban abortions in cases of rape and incest.<br /> <br /> But when Romney refers to him as the intellectual leader of the Republican Party, he is most likely referring to his reputation as a deficit hawk.<br /> <br /> In 2011, he proposed a budget plan that would reduce government spending by more than $5 trillion over 10 years.<br /> <br /> According to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, most of the cuts would come from programmes that help the country's poorest.<br /> <br /> On this episode of Inside Story: US 2012 we ask: How has Romney's pick been received by both Republicans and Democrats? So who is Ryan and why did Romney choose him as his running mate?<br /> <br /> Joining presenter Shihab Rattansi for the discussion are guests: Wendell Potter, a senior analyst at the Center for Public Integrity and a former executive-turned-critic in the US medical insurance industry; John Nichols, a political writer for The Nation magazine; and Bruce Fein, a former senior policy adviser to the Ron Paul 2012 presidential campaign.<br /> <br /> "Presidents don't like to give credit to their running mates. Every president has egos. I can guarantee you Romney is not going to say 'I'm a carbon-copy of Paul Ryan', it diminishes him .... This [Ryan's budget] is vastly inflated as to how much it will influence Romney."<br /> <br /> Bruce Fein, a former senior policy adviser to Ron Paul.<br /> <br /> PAUL RYAN'S BUDGET PROPOSAL:<br /> <br /> According to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, Ryan's budget would come at a huge cost for the country's most vulnerable.<br /> <br /> •The proposal calls for $5.3 trillion in non-defence budget cuts over 10 years<br /> •At least 62 per cent, or $3.3 trillion, would come from programmes that help Americans with low or moderate income<br /> •About $2.4 trillion in reductions would come from Medicaid and other health care programmes for people with limited means<br /> •There would be a $134bn cut from the US food stamp programme, which would effectively render 8-10 million people ineligible for food assistance<br /> •It calls for another $1.2 trillion in cuts but does not specify which other programmes would be affected Is the radical right on the rise in the US? tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2012-08-09:2182797:Video:2025797 2012-08-09T23:45:38.120Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/hug-an-atheist-a-documentary-film-that-needs-your-help-mirror"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/924lJeAy8WrfikViqxhiNL7SSauakZNySIVwot-Kb7*f0P2r1Bxv0lzdNStncl7lttXVRgzR2aA4pNTW9y31xo1CIXNYKncs/867631387.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Vigils are being held across the US mourning the six members of the Sikh community killed in a shooting rampage in Oak Creek in suburban Milwaukee in the state of Wisconsin on Sunday.<br></br> <br></br> "The one key thing that's missing in this entire debate is the term "terrorism"… we haven't heard many American media and socio-political leaders echo… <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/hug-an-atheist-a-documentary-film-that-needs-your-help-mirror"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/924lJeAy8WrfikViqxhiNL7SSauakZNySIVwot-Kb7*f0P2r1Bxv0lzdNStncl7lttXVRgzR2aA4pNTW9y31xo1CIXNYKncs/867631387.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Vigils are being held across the US mourning the six members of the Sikh community killed in a shooting rampage in Oak Creek in suburban Milwaukee in the state of Wisconsin on Sunday.<br /> <br /> "The one key thing that's missing in this entire debate is the term "terrorism"… we haven't heard many American media and socio-political leaders echo that same sentiment [as the authorities]. Imagine if a brown, bearded man walked into a Wisconsin church and killed six white people, would anybody in America even pause to call it an act of terrorism? Absolutely not.<br /> <br /> Five men - Prakash Singh, Suveg Singh, Ranjit Singh, Satwant Singh Kaleka and Sita Singh - and one woman - Paramjit Kaur - were killed in the shooting.<br /> <br /> The alleged gunman, 40-year-old Wade Michael Page, was also killed after he opened fire on a police officer. Page was an army veteran who was discharged from the military in 1998. He was also a white supremacist.<br /> <br /> The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a civil rights group that tracks hate groups in the US, says it has been tracking Page with concern for more than a decade.<br /> <br /> Page, who reportedly described himself as a member of the 'Hammerskins Nation', was trained in psychological warfare and served in the US army from 1992 before being demoted and discharged in 1998.<br /> <br /> US law enforcement says it is treating the attack as a possible act of "domestic terrorism", which implies a political agenda.<br /> <br /> A 2009 report by the Department of Homeland Security warned of the rise of right-wing groups fuelled by a struggling economy and the election of Barack Obama, the country's first black president. The report was criticised by Republicans and later pulled by the department.<br /> <br /> <br /> But the latest shooting has reignited fears about right-wing extremism.<br /> <br /> Pete Simi, the author of American Swastika: Inside the White Power Movement's Hidden Spaces of Hate, spent an extensive amount of time with Page in 2001 as part of his research into white supremacism.<br /> <br /> Earlier he told Al Jazeera: "Page was part of the much larger movement of white supremacists. At that time he was an independent, neo-Nazi skinhead. He shaved his head, was starting to tattoo his body with different symbols. He definitely endorsed a variety of different beliefs such as anti-Semitism, was antagonistic to anything so-called non-white, in particular most of his rhetoric on a regular basis was directed toward blacks."<br /> <br /> "There's a long-standing precedent in this country of these sorts of acts of white supremacist terror, starting with the founding of this country … exterminating the indigenous population, slavery, Jim Crow, lynching being an American past time … why are we not talking about that?"<br /> <br /> Sikhs in the US have faced widespread harassment since the September 11, 2001, attacks.<br /> <br /> The SPLC and the Department of Homeland Security have also reported that extremists have been joining the US military.<br /> <br /> Inside Story Americas asks: What questions should Americans be asking in the aftermath of this latest shooting?<br /> <br /> Joining the discussion with presenter Shihab Rattansi are guests: Vijay Prashad, a professor of international studies at Trinity College and author of the book Uncle Swami: South Asians in America Today; Sonny Singh, a social justice activist; and Arsalan Iftikhar, an international human rights lawyer and founder of the blog The Muslim Guy.
