Speaker of the House Paul Ryan ran for Vice President as the running mate of Mitt Romney in 2012, and at that time, this blogger made clear just how despicable a person he was, and I received a lot of hate emails because of that.
But what I said was true, and it is showing through ever more now on the Health Care legislation, where Ryan seems gleeful and excited about knocking millions of people off health care, and tells us that Obama Care is a nightmare, when it is anything but that.
Obama Care is not perfect, but it has saved many lives and brought health care to more than 20 million people, with the majority being white Christians, who now will be knocked off, and this will cause the death of thousands of people who will be unable to gain necessary medical intervention.
Ryan and others in the Congress have town halls, and hear the desperate entreaties of poor, sick, elderly, and disabled of all races and ethnic backgrounds, who are begging for a health care plan that does not ignore them.
Instead, the plan is to destroy Medicaid, and eventually Medicare as well, with Ryan laughing at one point about how he had been dreaming about this, when he was in college, drinking kegs of beer.
Watching that scene made this blogger want to vomit, as Ryan claims to be a “good Catholic”, a “good Christian”, as all of these reprehensible Republicans, including Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, claim they are.
But with Ryan’s views on the poor and needy, it is clear he is a phony Catholic, a phony Christian.
He believes all fetuses should be protected until born, but then a poor child and its mother are on their own, and if disabled, well,that is no responsibility of government.
Shame on him and his ilk in the Republican Party, who if there is true justice, should be kicked out of office by the voters, and should pay in the next world for their horrific sins, as they are NOT following the teachings of Jesus Christ, who would be shocked at their lack of concern for those less fortunate.
Ronald has had his blog since 2008. (Correct me if I am wrong.) I first posted here in 2011. In my early period, and maybe it was 2011 or after Mitt Romney selected him as his vice-presidential running mate in 2012, I basically said that Paul Ryan is a sociopath.
I want to present this video. I think it’s pretty interesting what Paul Ryan says in it.
Yes, D, I started this blog in August 2008, and was severely critical of Paul Ryan in 2012, and paid the price of vicious responses, some on here, and some in email and elsewhere.
This man is a horrifying two heartbeats away from the Presidency, but then Trump and Mike Pence are no better, so we live in dangerous and depressing times.
Ronald, I am curious to know when you feel it is appropriate to accuse someone of being a “phony Christian”. What exactly is the litmus test? With all due respect, are you the judge of such matters? I thought we were not allowed to question someone’s religious authenticity.
You seem to think you have a grasp on Jesus’ teachings, but if you did then you would know that you ought to pray for Paul Ryan and/or the Republican Party, not say that they should “pay in the next world”. (Matthew 5:44)
Indeed all men and women are guilty of sin, but how will yours be dealt with?
Please notice I have not defended Paul Ryan nor anyone else as they are irrelevant to my point. I am simply trying to share some thoughts on the content of the blog post.
I will let Ronald answer for himself.
But, from my end, if I was to state it…then it’s due to being able to tell that someone is a hypocrite and/or is full of *s*.
What D said is precisely my thoughts, and I will leave it at that.
Sorry if you do not like my thoughts and judgments, but I have freedom of speech, and will always speak out against religious hypocrisy and bigotry, of which there is much these days among many American politicians and citizens as well.
Here is a video in which Benjamin Dixon does an excellent job explaining why Paul Ryan is a sociopath.
Again, D, I remind you to look back in 2012 about my view of Paul Ryan.
