Leave it to Glenn Beck to bring out the worst in people, thank god, so we can see how wildly screwed up some people are. Take Rep. Paul Ryan for example. If you look past the admiring press, the actual economic break down of Ryan's "Road Map" never comes close to balancing budgets and dramatically short changes Social Security and Medicare, or at least what's left of them.
Ryan let's it all hang out with Beck:
Ryan: "What I've been trying to do is indict the entire vision of progressivism. Because I see progressivism as the source, the intellectual source of the big government problems plaguing us today. So to me, it's really important to flush progressives out into the field of open debate, so people can actually see what this ideology means, where it's going to lead us, and how it attacks the American idea.Ryan's goes on to bash the states educational economic engine, the University of Wisconsin,
Ryan: "I grew up hearing about this stuff. This stuff came from these German intellectuals to Madison, the University of Wisconsin, and sort of out from there, at the beginning of the last century. So this is something we are familiar with where I come from. It never sat right with me, and as I grew up I learned more about the founders, and reading the Austrians and others, that this is really a cancer."It's at this point Ryan argues AGAINST the constitution, rely only on what God and nature bestows upon us:
Ryan: "...because it basically takes the notion that our rights come from God and nature, and turns it on its head and says, no, no, no, no they come from government. We here in government are here to give you your rights and therefore ration, redistribute and regulate your rights."
Besides the hot button use of "ration," Ryan disagrees with taxpayer support of the government. He disagrees with laws that regulate our rights. For Ryan, we can decide what rights work for each of us, what God gave us, kinda like a formula for chaos, segregation, discrimination and criminality. So the idea the constitution outlines and protects our rights, including the "Bill of Rights," is a foreign concept for Ryan, as he states clearly below.
The Atlantic Right:
In a speech he gave to the Oklahoma Council on Public Affairs on March 31, Ryan praised “progressivism.” This ideology, he said, had influenced both parties. It was, when it first came to the forefront of American politics, populist and it aimed at empowering the people. Only later did it morph into an authoritarian ideology, with no respect for individual rights, or so Ryan argued.
