The Evil of Paul Ryan

Romney picking Paul Ryan for his VP should assure Romney's loss.

Ryan wants to end Medicare and replace it with a voucher system providing far less economic assistance. This will make America's seniors poorer. Compared to Medicare, participants will pay double under the Ryan plan. However, the taxes on the rich can be decreased.

Ryan wants to protect military spending (to help kill people in foreign countries) and cut spending for education and for feeding America's needy. And as the federal government cuts funding that helps states and localities, we can expect to see a downgrade in all state services: education, police, firefighters, health services, and so forth. Things like libraries will be the first to go. Better to bomb people in huts than prevent Americans from dying? You know, because we need to buy 33 tanks the military doesn't want at a cost of $91 million (the tanks aren't blamed on Ryan but are an example of the real government waste).

"Under Ryan’s 2011 budget plan, the CBO projected in 2011 that deficits would be 2 percent of GDP by 2022, compared to 2.75 percent under current law, and compared to 9 percent in 2010." - ABC News

Ryan wants to cut Pell Grants although the amount is debated. If he's not cutting it, he's making 1 million students ineligible for it and also not saying what else he's cutting. My wife was only able to afford college due to Pell Grants.

Even Newt Gingrich called Ryan's budget plans right-wing social engineering. A great amount of harm will be done to America to reduce America's debt by less than 1 percent more than under the Democrats' plan. It's not worth it. Even one of our primary Founding Fathers said carrying a small national debt would be a good thing if it was small: "A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing," Alexander Hamilton, 1781.

Ryan's philosophy believes that Social Security and all forms of government assistance are wrong and/or unconstitutional. Yet, he's not opposed to using them to benefit himself just as Ayn Rand also needed to go on Social Security to survive. "After Ryan’s father passed away, he saved Social Security survivor’s benefits to pay for attending Miami University, where Ryan double majored in economics and political science in 1992." It seems these people believe government assistance isn't necessary. All people can just collect their parents' Social Security for school or borrow $20,000 from their rich parents to start a business.

Ryan subscribes to the philosophy of Ayn Rand whose philosophy is evil and incompatible with religion (because it's anti-religion). She believed charity was morally wrong, that atheism was right, and that one should get theirs and leave everyone else to fend for themselves. A serial killer was also one of her role models because he did what he wanted to do. Many people admire Ayn Rand's thinking as radical, and it was. She fled communism, and what she experienced there gave her an irrational aversion to anything designed to help anyone. The irrational feelings of a sociopath are radical, but they should never be used as guidance by anyone else. Despite her being anti-religion, many consider the followers (worshippers?), Randians, of Ayn Rand to be in a religious cult because it fits many of the criteria defining a cult.

Ryan once said he followed Saint Thomas Aquinas (an Italian Dominican priest), not Ayn Rand. Aquinas felt it was immoral for sellers to raise their prices simply because buyers were in pressing need for a product. In other words, Aquinas opposed the free market. Aquinas wrote of the first principle, "this is the first precept of the law, that good is to be done and promoted, and evil is to be avoided. All other precepts of the natural law are based on this." Instead, Ryan's actions and legislating promote the idea that the first principle is that rich people shouldn't have to give up any of their money or stuff. As Jesus Christ preached against being rich, Ryan's lies are obvious, and if anything, Rand's teachings match those of an anti-Christ. Ryan also explicitly said in 2005 that Ayn Rand was his inspiration and gave copies of her book "Atlas Shrugged" to staffers as Christmas presents.

What has the world come to when we embrace an evil little man like Ryan as opposed to Martin Luther King, Jr. who said:

"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom."
- and -
"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."

Don't be fooled by conservative claims that Ryan's way is the only way to fix things. His way of fixing things by letting the weak die (as his economic Darwinism dictates) isn't really a way to fix things anyway.

So, voting for Romney will either get us a Romney that endorses the Ryan budget plan, or the Romney who's no different from Obama. Romney:

Wants gays allowed into the Boy Scouts.

Agrees with Obamacare, but he'll try to repeal it anyway - or so he says.

Was pro-choice. "In 1994, as a Senate candidate, he invoked the story of a 'close family relative' who had died after an illegal abortion and insisted that abortion should be 'safe and legal,' though he was personally opposed."

Well, Romney will have one difference from Obama. He'll fight for lower taxes on the rich at the expense of everyone else in opposition to Thomas Jefferson who felt all government tax burden should fall on the wealthy whenever possible.

"Another means of silently lessening the inequality of property is to
exempt all from taxation below a certain point, and to tax the higher
portions of property in geometric progression as they rise"
 - Thomas Jefferson

All Americans have a moral obligation, not just as Americans - but as humans, to vote against Romney and Ryan. Vote Obama, Gary Johnson, or even Jill Stein. However, voting for Romney/Ryan will have real victims and you will be the puller of the trigger.

There is no moral reason to vote for Romney. The only reason would be if you're rich, want to keep more of your money (i.e. only want your tax money used to help you personally and not anyone else), and don't care about others.

It is very telling by anti-porn Romney's endorsement by porn star Jenna Jameson who said, "When you're rich, you want a Republican in office." Well, maybe that's true when you're an amoral rich person without care for country or fellow Americans. Common sense dictates individuals do better when the society around them does better. Well, these people don't have a lot of common sense.

All the above should be enough. Besides the fact is that domestic austerity simply doesn't work and that the Ryan plan isn't the sort of government we should be striving for based on our Constitution and the Founding Fathers.
