Paul Ryan sends a chill down my spine

Every time Rightwing Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan opens his mouth, I get a chill down my spine. Ryan is a faithful follower of Ayn Rand, a mediocre novelist who did not believe in democracy.  She was a non-democratic cult rightwing leader.

Romney’s cold-blooded, cynical, hateful comments about the 47% of American losers sounds suspiciously like Ayn Rand. She believed in the makers and takers and that’s what Paul Ryan is talking about.

Ayn Rand rejected all forms of faith, religion, or philosophy. Rand believed only a few great men could run a society.

Someone should ask Paul Ryan just how closely he follows this bizarre, pseudo-intellectual cult leader.
