Paul Ryan: The Ultimate Hypocrite

Though many politicians disgust me, Paul Ryan holds a special place with me as the ultimate pile of garbage. That may seem harsh to some, but let me tell you why I feel this way.

This is a man who constantly rallies against big government spending, and champions himself a true small government fiscal conservative.

Only, hes completely full of crap.

Before I cover a few items from his political career which proudly display his hypocrisy about government spending, Id like to give a little background on the man himself.

1. My new fave - his privatized social security plan is controlled by a government board

Yes, a board whose members are appointed by the president. A board that decides which private investments are government approved.

"Soundness of Accounts. Those choosing the personal account option will select from a list of managed investment funds approved by the government for soundness and safety.

Yes, sort of a investment death panel...and the government picking winners to get all that money.

2. About the ayn rand worship part of the piece ...

it explains everything that preceded it. Like rand, ryan is a sociopath ... lying, hypocrisy, contradictions, human suffering only concern people with moral filters and consciences.

3. You're assuming that he's saying what he believes

That's a big-ass assumption that is wrong. Ryan knows what he's doing, he knows where he wants things to end up and that what he says is likely to bring it about. The problem is, what he believes isn't what he implies he believes.

That's true of Republican's in general. They say they like small government. Sure, when it comes to helping people who aren't billionaires. So cutting Medicare and SS are great, small government ideas, whereas cutting the military and hence, the contractors that make so much money off of it, well, that big government is just fine.

The most stunningly obvious one is about cutting taxes, favoring the rich. Anyone who buys this line and isn't a billionaire is a fucking idiot and deserves to get their ass kicked. Trickle down? It's just an excuse to allow idiots to continue to be idiots.

All those religious Republicans in government? They don't believe a damn thing they spout off, but they know it's really usefull for leading the voluntarily retarded to punch themselves in the face while supporting the very people that make them less free and, more importantly, less wealthy.

So you think Ryan is an idiot? Nope, it's the people who take his arguments seriously who are idiots.

4. Agree, he is not an idiot

There certainly are some in the GOP, like Gohmert. But the leaders know exactly what they are doing and only occasionally screw up and let people see the plan. Mitt's 47% comment was about the closest to the truth you get out of these folks.

5. Lyin' Ryan--reincarnation of Ayn Rand is an evil sociopath, twisting "reality" for his own gains.
