What I learned from the opening night of the Republican convention:
A small Mom and Pop business in Arizona built the Hoover Dam.
The Koch Brothers financed the interstate highways.
The air traffic control system was originally a small mid-western start-up that Bain Capital invested in.
Paul Ryan invented the Internet.
Small, independent entrepreneurs are the engines that drive the American economy, witness one Steve Jobs, in a garage, in Palo Alto. Of course, to protect his intellectual creations he had to rely on government patent law, in a government court, with the verdict enforced by overpaid government employees with fat pensions.
The Ryan-Romney ticket now wants to eliminate the Richard Nixon / Republican created EPA.
What happened to my GOP?
