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.
