Paul Ryan vs. the People

Paul Ryan vs. the People

Paul Ryan paints himself as a champion of “the people” over “Washington.”

But the “people” the new House speaker defends are corporations. And the “Washington” he attacks is the one that does deliver for real people.

For the past five years, Ryan has authored the budget passed by the House of Representatives. His imprint is so great that each document is commonly known as the “Ryan budget.”

Paul Ryan or "Eddie Munster" as I sometimes refer to him will be the continuation of Congressional Rethug "leadership" going back to at least the deplorable Newt Gingrich. Remember his "Contract with America" which many referred to as the "Contract ON America. However, Ryan is off the charts in his ability to be a shameless liar and hypocrite and shill for the oligarchs. In addition to all the damage that "Lyin' Ryan" (his infamous RNC speech in 2102 contained at least 40 lies and remember his disgraceful "Pot Gate" incident) will do as House Speaker you can bet that he sees this as a step toward even greater power later on. After all, he has this Ayn Rand insanity to spread over the whole country.

Ryan's agenda has been bolstered by praise he has received from Democrats including Obama ("this is a guy I can work with"), Patty Murray (D-WA) who can't stop gushing about how great it was working with Ryan on the budget, and Dick Durbin (D-IL) who recently said " Ryan is such a nice guy, its hard to believe he wants to privatize Social Security and Medicare".

The clear thinking ninety-six members of congress who presented a people's budget should drop out of the democratic party and go on their own as "Progressive Caucus."

Follow Paul Ryan's path and there will be a military slaughter of dissidents until soldiers become disgusted with killing neighbors and friends and abandon the army with their weapons and go home to protect family and friends.

This story has been repeated over and over since empires began. Every last military empire has collapsed into smoldering ruin and so will every future one.
