Paul Ryan is an Ayn Rand worshipper... and the greatest gift to the Democratic party
Edited on Wed Apr-13-11 11:24 PM by scheming daemons
...in 2012.


Paul Ryan, bless his heart, believes his own bullshit. I think the guy is actually sincere in his beliefs and actually thinks his world view (randian) is an accurate reflection of reality.

He's not a cynical politician saying what he thinks people want to hear.


He believes in Friedman-Rand-Norquist "starve the beast"-ism.


.... and his lack of political acumen... and lack of understanding of humanity and human nature... make him the perfect foil for Democrats in 2012.


His budget plan, which will be voted on in the House, will put dozens of Republicans on record. It is the greatest gift the Democrats could have every received for 2012.



At Obama's 2013 inauguration party, Paul Ryan should get a seat at the head table. He's done more to re-elect Obama than anything any Democrat (including Obama) could possibly have done.

1. Luv it, his "Pathway to Poverty" is a gift
... but it was scary to think about!

2. If his extremism wakes up the American people
Then it MIGHT be worth it. Glad Obama specifically mentioned his vile ideas.

6. I call him "little Rand."
Those eyes, oh Obama hurt him!

Now he is also the President of the Bi-Partisan Polite Police.

"Obama is a meany!"


This is the guy who's follower stomped on the neck and head of a woman who did not like "Little Rand."

7. Crooks and Liars...
Did a great write-up on Ryan's obession with Rand. I talk about it on my radio show.

9. He should follow the other worshipper
and rename himself after the atheist ...

what is this obsession with an atheist that the Repugs have? I mean, aren't they the ones who attack anybody who doesn't subscribe totally to Christian values? How is Ayn Rand's atheism compatible with Christian values???

10. But does he really make all his staff read Atlas Shrugged?
Really obnoxious if true, but it's not in Wikipedia.
