There is one thing that completely bumfuzzles me when I hear people saw it about Rep.'s venture into Social Darwinism.
At least he has a plan. No one else in Washington has a plan.
I pretty much figure that the people who say this are one of two things. They're either promoting Ryan's plan ... or they're idiots.
Simply having a plan is worth nothing. I can say I have the perfect plan to end gridlock in Washington, but if I tell you that plan is to deport all Republicans, I shouldn't get credit for innovative thinking.
Come on, folks.had a plan too. He called it the Final Solution.
All you need to know about Ryan to understand him is that he is a disciple of the late Ayn Rand. Taxes on the extremely wealthy in this country are at their lowest level in more than 80 years, but Ryan's plan is to cut them even more. I can only figure he has so little respect for the American voter that he believes people will buy anything if you lie about it long enough.
Ronald Reagan sold us trickle-down economics in the '80s, and Republicans have been buying into it ever since despite the fact that is doesn't work. The rich have been getting richer for 30 years and the rest of us are getting screwed.
I can give you an extremely conservative argument for higher taxes without increasing government spending in any way. WE NEED TO PAY OUR DEBTS.
Got it? We could refuse to increase spending at all, but we still need to take in more money to balance the budget and pay the debts our government has been incurring since Reagan started running massive deficits in his first term.
Paul Ryan doesn't want to do that.
He wants to cut taxes even more, and continue to increase defense spending as well. The only possible answer to this is that Ryan and the others like him are expecting a massive crash -- the bankruptcy to end all bankruptcies -- at some point.
You can bet that when it comes, these people will have most of their wealth offshore somewhere. And when this country descends into total anarchy, Ryan and all the others like him will be living somewhere far from here and using small armies to protect their wealth.
I want these people to answer one question:
Let's assume that we're not going to increase federal spending for domestic needs at all. Let's assume that we're willing to let people die for lack of medical care or starve because they cannot afford to buy food.
Forget them, OK?
Why won't you support taxation that will at least pay for the government you demand that we have? Why do you refuse to even consider paying down the national debt?
Yeah, that's two questions, but it really comes down to one:
Why are you trying to destroy the United State of America?
It's a fair question.
