The House of Representatives is in complete disarray. They need a leader. Representative Paul Ryan has decided not to decide if he wants to be that leader. So who is Paul Ryan? Paul Ryan is a self-avowed radical Ayn Rand conservative. As we all remember, Ayn Rand is a right wing with a political philosophy that appeals to egocentric people. Her simplistic philosophy is if you don’t earn it you shouldn’t have it. This phrase has a ring to it that is appealing. Therefore, those who adhere to her philosophy are usually successful, self-supporting people or those who believe they can aspire to become that. Like so much in real life, that we tend to find appealing, is shortsighted. The truth is; society is composed of all kinds of people many of who are egocentric when they have no reason to be. Of course, there are many others. For example, a person with an IQ of 50 is not able to find a job or work productively. People with Down’s syndrome have an average IQ of about 50. Down’s syndrome is only an example. We have wounded veterans, automobile accident victims, a victim of gun violence, as well as those with low IQ. If Paul Ryan has enough money, he will be the first one willing to give to help care for a Down’s syndrome person. However, if he doesn’t have sufficient money for himself, that person is on his or her own. Of course, the question is who among us has sufficient money for everything they want. If they live or die is of no concern, because the onus is on someone else. If someone were to bother to ask Ayn or Paul who that someone else is, he would not have an answer. Paul Ryan has put forward a budget, which clearly shows his Ayn Rand egocentric philosophy. Now he wants to extend that philosophy to the entire government. No more welfare — period. If you cannot work for a living, you don’t deserve to live. Wouldn’t that be to live as the Neanderthal lived? Didn’t they become extinct between 41,000 and 39,000 years ago? To me, it is inconceivable that a rational person would throw away out humanization by even considering Paul Ryan as a Speaker of the House of Representative in 2015. However, the fact is he is ready and willing to serve in that capacity put there by people who are driving by their lust for all the money they think they need to have everything they want.
