Paul Ryan: 2012 Candidate for Vice President – Esquire

Judas Betrayal of the ANOINTED ONE

Paul Ryan is an authentically dangerous zealot. He does not want to reform entitlements. He wants to eliminate them. He wants to eliminate them because he doesn’t believe they are a legitimate function of government. He is a smiling, aw-shucks murderer of opportunity, a creator of dystopias in which he never will have to live. This now is an argument not over what kind of political commonwealth we will have, but rather whether or not we will have one at all, because Paul Ryan does not believe in the most primary institution of that commonwealth: our government. The first three words of the Preamble to the Constitution make a lie out of every speech he’s ever given. He looks at the country and sees its government as something alien that is holding down the individual entrepreneurial genius of 200 million people, and not as their creation, and the vehicle through which that genius can be channelled for the general welfare.

  1. I’m a leftist, voting for Obama. I disagree with all of Ryan’s social and economic views. This remark, however, is simply outrageous hyperbole, without any evidence provided (because none exists). It’s exactly the same as when Tea Party types call Obama a socialist: a kind of demonization that helps perpetuate the stupidification of political discourse in America.

      1. Pretty much the entire paragraph. He wants to eliminate all entitlements? He doesn’t believe in government? The first three words of the Declaration make a lie out of every speech he’s ever given? “Murderer of opportunity”? “Authentically dangerous zealot”? “Creator of dystopias”? Give me a break.
