27. Are you a Maker, Mr. Ryan?

What have you made? I mean, aside from idiotic comments that would put to shame any human being with a shred of integrity, decency, or human compassion. I suppose you've made money, for which I would congratulate you if you weren't a complete and total imbecile.

Contrary to your statements, you Sir, and those of your ilk, are the true takers. You take hope and you crush it, you take common sense and simple empathy and you twist them around as if they are bad things. In so many ways, you define just what a "taker" actually is. You've grown up in a Nation that has given you the opportunity to become wealthy, to run for (and achieve) political office. You have access to some of the best benefits in the world on top of already earning an income that most of us can only dream of. What are you doing with it, Sir?

Are you giving back? Are you fighting for those, or even caring for those, who have not been so fortunate as you? Or are you instead, using your wealth and influence to support those who already have more than enough?

As a man young man who has frequently worked past exhaustion and earned little money as a result, I still do not envy you Sir. Your wealth serves you not at all because all you can think of is how much more you want - and who you have to serve to get it. Your position, rather than being benevolent, inspirational or in any way uplifting for your fellow human beings... instead is used to demonize them, to make those who are unfortunate appear as lazy, as ugly, foolish, even useless.

I would far rather give my support, my compassion... my votes and my efforts... to those who might benefit from them. To those who might learn and grow and value such things as empathy and compassion.

Frankly, Mr. Ryan, you and your ilk are the worst takers of all, because you take all that you can and all you ever want is to take more.
