I got an email from the Tea Party Patriots that included an online survey.  The memo, along with the accompanying survey shows that  there is much dissatisfaction with Ryan.  

The survey asks if you support the Ryan budget, would you support a voucher plan for medicare, do you support the shift from federal to state government, do you support Romney's pick, who would your choice have been for VP and more.

Even though the survey asks for your email address, I left it blank and the survey went through without it.

Dear Patriot,

Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate made headline news. It was a bold choice, because it marks a dramatic turn for his campaign- away from strategy of dodging attacks by making no firm policy statements.

In picking Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney is associating himself with Paul Ryan's budget proposals and ideas for reforming entitlements. It's a bold move, because Ryan has advanced one of the boldest and most detailed plans of any incumbent politician on either side of the aisle.

As the nation's largest Tea Party group, we want to know what you think about Gov. Romney's choice, and specifically Paul Ryan's budget. Do you think his plan represents a step towards saving America from insolvency? Does it go far enough? Or is he barking up the wrong proverbial tree?

Please, we want to hear from you. Will you take a moment right now to answer a few survey questions?

The elections this November are shaping up to be the most dramatic choice our country will face in our lifetimes. Never have we seen a wider gulf between two visions for America as we see between the our two candidates today.

Tea Party Patriots is committed to once again having a major influence in this election, but in order to do that, we need to hear from you! We aren't some Washington think-tank marching in step with either political party- we are wholly focused on the grass roots.

That's you!

Thank You in advance for all your support.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
