Ryan the Dismantler
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

I'm an independent who listened to all three nights of the Republican National Convention. I didn't like much of what I heard, but there was also a lot that I liked.

I'm convinced that Mitt Romney is a good person. I'm also convinced he is intelligent and a hard worker — he will give his all to being president. I would be comfortable having Romney as president.

I'm not so sure about Paul Ryan being a heartbeat away from the presidency. He seems much more interested in dismantling the government than in making it run better to serve the people.

Nevertheless, I'm leaning to voting for Romney, but first I'll give the Democrats their chance at rebuttal next week. But the Republicans put on a solid show.
