1. Thou shalt make no hyperbolic nor dishonest criticisms of Ryan's policies nor those of any other Republican who suggests thoughtful policies for dealing with our fiscal situation.
2. Thou shalt not offend thy fellow citizens by offering shallow, dishonest, crowd pleasing pseudo-solutions to our fiscal problems. If thou makest policy suggestions, they shalt be responsible, and plausibly address the fiscal issues of the land.
3. Thou shalt not make an idol, nor even a litmus test, of Ryan's policies, and thou shalt welcome incisive critiques and plausible alternatives.
