As a callow youth (I was a Republican. Good grief!), I read Ayn avidly, though not thoughtfully.
Ryan is still callow–after all he is pretty young. Let’s hope he grows up and learns to think for himself by checking out the real world, not a Rand fantasy one. Of course, I would give that advice to any Republican.
Ya,Ryan seems to believe alot of this -Rand-person? he has to hold hands too ,for support???WOW!He must live in FANTASY world.
Ryan will “turn off” many 50 somethings who think their future social security will be hurt by his policys.
I concur that teabaggers really are like little children who won’t go to bed when they’re told to.
And now…. the REAL cartoon of the day…

Have a nice day!
“Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.” – Ronald Reagan
Reagan was one of the biggest spenders among presidents. He cut taxes and increased defense spending. He also mandated that emergency rooms must treat anyone regardless of ability to pay. That allows many who could afford insurance to forgo it knowing they will not be left to die and that the tax payers will pick up the tab. Under Reagan the deficit grew large. His trickle down economics that supposedly would create jobs when taxes to the wealthy were cut failed to work as planned. Fact is, cutting taxes for the wealthy to provide incentives for investment does not work unless taxes are so high that little is left for investment to begin with and demand is there for the product to be sold. Cutting taxes for the middle class will work to stimulate spending.
Christiana… no offense but…. you’re a moron. Reagan’s recovery saw job growth in the near million a month range for years on end. How stupid can you be to believe that allowing people to keep more of their own earnings is bad for the economy? I mean really… you’ve got to be a downright absolute fool to believe that giving government more of the private sector’s earnings is good for people. If you believe that, put your money where you pie hole is and pay more than you have to. You are allowed to pay more in taxes if you want to. It’s true. Don’t be such a useful idiot for the left, Christiana.
“The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.” – Ronald Reagan
(I’m gonna try this again.. damn thing goofed up on me.. Did you do something to my ‘puter bozo.. hee! hee!).. Anyway:
the REAL, REAL cartoon of the day…
Rand’s writings, which she produced while on public assisance, are fiction. So is Ryan’s budget.
Ryan also seems to forget that Rand also famously said she’d “vote for the Marx Bros. before she’d vote for a Libertarian.”
Ayn Rand ? The problems these Plutocratic, Arrogant,Traitors are willing to bestow on the American people go far and past a psychos book. This is a real life travesty that will destroy our middle class and OUR Democracy.
