Paul Ryan’s VP Nomination Speech At The RNC “Rights Come From God, NOT Goverment” And Other Low Points

Paul Ryan officially accepted the Republican Party’s vice presidential  nomination. And as part of his borderline megalomaniac acceptance speech reached new heights of insanity and lies by stating that American rights are moral rights given to us by God and NOT the Constitution.

“Each of these great moral ideas is essential to democratic government – to the  rule of law, to life in a humane and decent society. They are the moral creed of  our country, as powerful in our time, as on the day of America’s founding. They  are self-evident and unchanging, and sometimes, even presidents need reminding,  that our rights come from nature and God, not from government.”

Other than this Christian fanatic bon mot.  Ryan also lauded himself to high heaven and typically bashed President Obama and the Democrats while leaving out the truth about himself.

*Ryan complained about Obama not moving ahead with the Bowles/Simpson plan that  Ryan himself voted against.

* Ryan blamed the credit downgrade  on Obama when it was caused by the Republicans in congress screwing with the debt ceiling.

*Ryan blamed Obama for closing an auto plant that was closed before he got into office.

*Ryan stated that he wants to make drastic cuts to the social safety but didn’t mention that it was social security benefits after his father’s death that paid for his college education.

*Ryan continued to lie about Obama removing the work requirement from  welfare even though the waivers provided to the states require a 20% increase in  work from welfare.

*And of course Ryan continued to lie about the 716 billion  in Medicare savings that is also included in The Paul Ryan End of America budget plan.

Ryan lies to himself, lies to the country and I’m sure that if he talks in his sleep, he lies then, too.

This is the GOP

The Lies & Garbage Party.

  1. The GOP’s hate mongering and fear mongering is part of a campaign, or rather crusade (just as in the Medieval days), to take back the Holy Land against the Muslims. Only the US, has become part of their “Holy Land” – part of the “every place on which your foot has tread, I have given it to you” bullshit. The Abrahamic faiths “Holy Wars” are simply crusades of hate and intolerance.

    Paul Ryan, Todd Akin and a few others, are simply a wee bit more vocal about it, pushing the boundaries, a little more each time, until they feel totally emboldened to start actually carrying crusader cross banners at their functions. The word “crusade”comes from the Middle Latin cruciata, “to mark with a cross”.

    This is part of my research and book, to “out” their religions, to out the source of their hate and bigotry, to show that their is an egalitarian way.
