The Real Paul Ryan Is Revealed By His Own Words...and The Atlas Society!!

The real Paul Ryan is a bit difficult to pin down, first he is said to have been an ardent supporter of Ayn Rand and her philosophies and more recently when he realized he was hitting the big times, he all of a sudden denied many of the things that he himself is RECORDED to have said. He is now quoted as saying that these past ideas of him being her 'disciple' is an urban myth.

His apparent self loathing of his past as a person who grew up using the Government dollar to get by, is evident in his actions over the years in his multiple attempts to stymie that same Government help to others. I remind you that Ayn Rand also used that Government dollar to get by in her later years, so there may be less of a difference between Ryan and Rand than we first thought.

In response to Paul Ryan's hypocrisy and outright lies about his past, The Atlas Society has been forced [or just seen it fit] to present the real truth, about the REAL Paul Ryan, as recorded by them at their function in 2005, where Paul Ryan spoke to them. Below are pieces of the transcript as presented by The Atlas Society, they have also given a download of the recorded event, at the bottom of their article. Just click on their name to access the article.

From The Atlas Society...

             "Some exerpts from the audio (with minute and second markers): 
(1:45) I just want to speak to you a little bit about Ayn Rand and what she meant to me in my life and [in] the fight we’re engaged here in Congress. I grew up on Ayn Rand, that’s what I tell know everybody does their soul-searching, and trying to find out who they are and what they believe, and you learn about yourself. 

(2:01) I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff. We start with Atlas Shrugged. People tell me I need to start with The Fountainhead then go to Atlas Shrugged [laughter]. There’s a big debate about that. We go to Fountainhead, but then we move on, and we require Mises and Hayek as well.

"I always go back to... Francisco d’Anconia’s speech [in Atlas Shrugged] on money when I think about monetary policy."
(2:23) But the reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand. And the fight we are in here, make no mistake about it, is a fight of individualism versus collectivism.
(2:38) In almost every fight we are involved in here, on Capitol Hill, whether it’s an amendment vote that I’ll take later on this afternoon, or a big piece of policy we’re putting through our Ways and Means Committee, it is a fight that usually comes down to one conflict: individualism vs. collectivism.
(2:54) And so when you take a look at where we are today, ah, some would say we’re on offense, some would say we’re on defense, I’d say it’s a little bit of both. And when you look at the twentieth-century experiment with collectivism—that Ayn Rand, more than anybody else, did such a good job of articulating the pitfalls of statism and collectivism—you can’t find another thinker or writer who did a better job of describing and laying out the moral case for capitalism than Ayn Rand.
(3: 21)  It’s so important that we go back to our roots to look at Ayn Rand’s vision, her writings, to see what our girding, under-grounding [sic] principles are. I always go back to, you know, Francisco d’Anconia’s speech (at Bill Taggart’s wedding) on money when I think about monetary policy. And then I go to the 64-page John Galt speech, you know, on the radio at the end, and go back to a lot of other things that she did, to try and make sure that I can check my premises so that I know that what I’m believing and doing and advancing are square with the key principles of individualism…
(6:53) Is this an easy fight? Absolutely not…But if we’re going to actually win this we need to make sure that we’re solid on premises, that our principles are well-defended, and if we want to go and articulately defend these principles and what they mean to our society, what they mean for the trends that we set internationally, we have to go back to Ayn Rand. Because there is no better place to find the moral case for capitalism and individualism than through Ayn Rand’s writings and works.  "

One comment on their article said of the choice between a supposed Socialist [Obama] and a KNOWN SOCIOPATH [Ryan] ... they would choose the first. I concur!!
Watch out for this guy.
