Who I am voting for in Tampa...Submitted by Westfall on Sat, 08/18/2012 - 21:46
After Paul Ryan was selected as VP, I have been struggling to decide if I would vote for him or not for VP. I do like a lot of what the says, and as I fellow fan of the philosophy of Ayn Rand, I share her assessment of the root cause of all of our problems as well as her proposed solution.
Today I was a a district committee meeting, and I got into a discussion with a fellow GOP member who asked if I was on board with Paul Ryan since I agree with his philosophy.
Imagine a situation where a patient were sick and dying from ingesting a poison. Now imagine a capable doctor who knows what the antidote is, and tells the patient exactly what she needs to be cured...but this doctor, when given the chance to treat writes a prescription for more poison, under the guise that the patient is so sick that more poison is needed.
If I endorse or even allow this doctor to treat this ignorant patient, then the patient will get sicker, but worse, because the doctor constantly speaks of how the antidote is. The patient will conclude that the antidote is making her sicker.
The patient is America. The sickness is economic malaise brought on by the poison of Socialism. The cure is freedom (brutal cuts included). Paul Ryan publicly talks about freedom, but every time he is given the opportunity to treat the patient he prescribes more poison in the form of TARP on the reasoning that the patient is really sick.
This is worse than someone who just gives the patient poison and calls it poison, as it least then the patient might eventually decide a different course of treatment is in order.
