Paul Ryan and Ayn Rand---Questions?

How does Paul Ryan reckon his religion (Catholism) with the Atheist Ayn Rand?

Ayn Rand is an abomination to the Church. The collectivism of Jesus Christ would

not sit well with Ayn Rand. Helping the poor, and healing the sick is repulsive to Rand.

I have a feeling that secretly Paul Ryan could care less about the less fortunate. But he

wants in the political game. There's too much wealth, and power to be had not to try.

My intuition tells me Paul Ryan still holds Ayn Rand's philosophy to the highest order. If

Thom! Please replay the Reagan line, "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"

Mitt's CANS...and...CANT'S

Sometimes things break down quite simply...and here are some points abot the WORST presidential candidate to have taken stage in my lifetime. Mit's CANS: CANS #1...Mitt fakes a photo op that shows him soliciting CANS of food that the Red Cross DOES NOT NEED OR WANT to help out in the "Sandy Crisis". Mitt does not have a feel for a "crisis" because he has never been near one. CANS #2...Mitt CANS american workers so as to HARVEST higher profits for his select few while not having a CLUE that what he is "harvesting" are the lives of some wonderful PEOPLE and citizens of this country.

10 Reasons Why You Should Vote For Obama


Finally Obama shows up

Of Sure he will show up for those who got hit by the Super Storm on the east coast just before election, but where was President Obam when the BP Oil Spill took place. He put a hault in oil permits in the Gulf; he did come down their after Gov. Bobby Jindal spoke to the Press about the lack of President Obama's response, but our President chewed the Gov. Jindal for doing that. Amazing.


If the Democratic Party was not so bought and paid for by the healthcare industry and BigPharma, then the meterological event known as "Sandy" could easily serve as a near perfect example of how well a "single payer" healthcare system would work for the "betterment" of the citizens inhabiting the GOOD OLE USofA.

Of course I am referring to FEMA...the federal governmental [single payer] program well designed to assist any region in our country when major natural events wreak havoc on the areas and their populations.

It would be very interesting to see you guys exchange ideas and talk about the areas he is exploring. Let's get Thom to bring Joe Rogan on the show!

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
