Romney Picks Ryan

A ticket Ayn Rand could get behind!

For those of you who don't know who Ayn Rand is here is a quick bio on her...

Ayn Rand is a Russian, Athiest and architect of the "philosophy" known as Objectivism which in it basest form preaches "I've got mine Jack, screw the rest of you!". Her "philosophy" was culled from her two fictional novels The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy sums up Rand and her values this way: “Conspicuous by their absence from Rand's list of virtues are the “virtues of benevolence”, such as kindness, charity, generosity, and forgiveness.”

What does this have to do with Mitt Romney vice presidential pick you ask....

Paul Ryan loves... No check that... Paul Ryan worships Ayn Rand. Ryan is so obsessed with Rand that he has stated that her novels are required reading for everyone who works in his office. In a recent New Yorker profile, Ryan called her a key inspiration in his life. This can be plainly seen by his middle class destroying budget plan which rewards the rich with tax breaks and pays for them by crushing the poor with tax hikes and benefit cuts.

Mitt Romney famously said of the Ryan Budget Plan: "I think it’d be marvelous if the Senate were to pick up Paul Ryan’s budget and to adopt it and pass it along to the president,”

Sounds like Mitt has truly found his mini-me..
