I hate to do this amidst the love-fest going on with conservatives that constantly forget just what it is we're fighting. The melodious rhetoric coming from the idiot boxes (TV/Radio) tell them there is a new hero on the scene and that all is saved! The reality is that this man is totally down with globalism. Yes he may pepper his speeches with terms such as "free market", but a person who truly believes in free market America would not have a voting record like this. All of this Ryan hype reminds me of the Herman Cain hype. Tea Partiers rah rah-ing a former Fed official without batting an eye. Why? To be blunt, they were just too dumb to know what's really going on and how the country really does work.
As far as the flow of money goes, Ryan is synced up with the banksters in both parties. His famous "plan" has been shown to be a complete ruse, cutting the increase in projected spending, when the only thing that will even begin to save our economy is slashing the government everywhere.
Paul Ryan is a total socialist cut out of the same cloth as the heirs to Leon Trotsky--the neocons. Yes, he looks harmless enough, but his voting record should be seen as pure poison to the Republic. Thanks to the Republican Liberty Caucus to which I've add my snark.
Paul Ryan on Bailouts and Government Stimuli
-Voted YES on TARP (2008) [Recall that Paulson threatened martial law if they didn't pass it.]
-Voted YES on Economic Stimulus HR 5140 (2008) [Handing more tribute over to our overlords.]
-Voted YES on $15B bailout for GM and Chrysler. (Dec 2008) [My grandpa lost a lot of cash in this one.]
-Voted YES on $192B additional anti-recession stimulus spending. (Jul 2009) [more $$ to the masters.]
Paul Ryan on Entitlement Programs
-Voted YES on limited prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. (Nov 2003)
[Ok, this thing is SOCIALIST medicine piecemeal, that's what the Part D was about.]
-Voted YES on providing $70 million for Section 8 Housing vouchers. (Jun 2006)
[He disses the welfare after he voted for it.]
-Voted YES on extending unemployment benefits from 39 weeks to 59 weeks. (Oct 2008)
[I know a guy who sat on his ass an extra year because of the free money he was getting, giving up work to watch Fox News all day.]
-Voted YES on Head Start Act (2007)
[Further separate young children from their mothers, this program is a proven failure.]
Paul Ryan on Education
Rep. Ryan went along with the Bush Administration in supporting more federal involvement in education. This is contrary to the traditional Republican position, which included support for abolition of the Department of Education and decreasing federal involvement in education.
-Voted YES on No Child Left Behind Act (2001)
[I know a friend who witnessed kindergarten teachers coaching their kids in how to cheat on their federal test because they were so afraid of losing their jobs. Sixth graders are given calculators to do basic arithmetic so they won't flub up their tests. Beyond that, this was meant to standardize the curriculum across the country and get the federal tentacles in our schools.]
|Socialist piece of crud|
Paul Ryan on Civil Liberties
-Voted YES on federalizing rules for driver licenses to hinder terrorists. (Feb 2005) [Nose in the tent]
-Voted YES on making the PATRIOT Act permanent. (Dec 2005)
[How does he feel about the CFR saying Al Qaeda is awesome and the Homeland hollow-point stock up?]
-Voted YES on allowing electronic surveillance without a warrant. (Sep 2006)
[The resistance to the banksters must be tracked]
Paul Ryan on War and Intervention Abroad
-Voted YES on authorizing military force in Iraq. (Oct 2002)
-Voted YES on emergency $78B for war in Iraq & Afghanistan. (Apr 2003)
-Voted YES on declaring Iraq part of War on Terror with no exit date. (Jun 2006)
-Voted NO on redeploying US troops out of Iraq starting in 90 days. (May 2007)
Congressman Ryan supports the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, federal bailouts, increased federal involvement in education, unconstitutional and undeclared wars, Medicare Part D (a multi trillion dollar unfunded liability), stimulus spending, and foreign aid.
[All this means he's for the downgrading of our troops and the transfer of power to the unaccountable, unelectable supranational force like NATO or the UN. Recall Leon Panetta told Congress that the military answers to NATO and not them.]
In summary Paul Ryan, former speechwriter for Bohemian Grover Jack Kemp continues the 100 year tradition of bankster domination of the American Republic. I see videos of this tool spouting the ol' trickle down let's not tax the rich because the rich create jobs. All things being equal, this would be true.
But all things are not equal, the super-duper rich who have set up all these fiduciary devices, benefit from them and do no choose to create jobs in America anymore.
The world is literally their oyster, they hold no allegiance to any government, but the one world kind that they dream about. And that world DOES NOT include an America in the mold of the Founding Fathers, but an America where human beings are human resources. What do you do when you no longer need a resource?--- you throw it away.
I really wish the conservatives who claim to be smarter than liberals would wise up to rhetorical manipulation and appearances and hold people accountable to their RECORDS, especially those they've made as a public servant.
Paul Ryan also has the dubious honor of being in those super secret meetings with Bernacke and Fed Co right before TARP. They don't meet with just anyone ya'll. Like FDR said, nothing in that town happens by accident. Ryan's convoluted floor speech justifying his TARP vote (you'll recall that the Tea Party began as a reaction to our government handing taxpayer money to big corporations not being a free-market thing to do) is just embarrassing:
Recall Paulson threatened MARTIAL LAW if he didn't get TARP!!! The best part of this speech says that when profits come to these companies, the American taxpayer gets paid back. This is not the free market, this is fascism and if the man is too stupid to realize it, he is too stupid to get my vote. I don't think he's stupid, he's been around DC a long, long time. Since he was 25, writing speeches for Jack Kemp. He also mentions Herbert Hoover causing the Depression, illustrating his total ignorance of history.
Good grief, they're like the Midwest's version of the Kennedys! I have to point out that David Boren, is a Skull and Bones guy for those tracking that sort of thing. (I hope to go through the Sutton book on that when I get done with the Nazi one we're working our way through.)
