Paul Ryan's Statements Compiled from Last Seven Years

A virtual interview with Paul Ryan in his own words.

This imaginary interview is compiled from comments made by Paul Ryan since 2005. 

Interviewer - We welcome Republican Vice Presidential is a guest today on Let the Truth Shine Through is the Welcome to our program.*

Paul Ryan – Glad to be here.

Interviewer - Mr. Ryan, You fascinate me by your devotion to serving your country. What is the engine which drives you?

PR – I believe that the moral vision of our Founding Fathers is being replaced by one that is  un-American – a government which makes all citizens dependent upon it.

Interviewer - Mr. Ryan could you elaborate on what was the vision of our founding fathers?

PR – The Father of our country, George Washington, was first and foremost a business man. He was a  man who loved this land; so much so, that he bought as much of it as he could.
Washington was truly the “Father of Acquisitiveness” and role model for us. He bought more land than any other president.  In today’s dollars he was the richest of all our presidents.
 Liberals think that GW had a vision of creating a commune, where people shared what they had with one another and walked around naked.

Interviewer – You are known to be a devout Catholic. Does that have any influence on your views on taxes, entitlement programs and finance regulation?

PR – My Catholic faith gave birth to my political views.  It is morally wrong for the government to decide who are the winners and who the losers by confiscating the earnings of the wealthy who create jobs and prosperity.
 I proudly and strongly oppose developing energy alternatives which will hurt the giant coal and oil industries.  There's no such thing as global warming - it's all natural climatic variation. And if there is a problem, it won't affect us much.
We should eliminate programs such as food stamps or revitalizing distressed public housing that take from those who succeed and give to the losers. I proudly voted NO on four weeks of paid parental leave for federal employees. (June 2009)
Obama and the liberal establishment you know places like the one in my backyard, the University of Wisconsin in Madison are a cancer assaulting capitalism, which is the moral foundation of society
They are creating a culture of dependency on the government, not on oneself. They mean to replace the American idea. And that brings me to my demand of enforcement of immigration laws, without amnesty.

Interviewer – Regarding your budget proposal your former parish priest in Janesville, Father Stephen Umhoefer told the Center for Media and Democracy,  “You can’t tell somebody that in 10 years your economic situation is going to be just wonderful because meanwhile your kids may starve to death.”

PR – To the best of my knowledge Pope Benedict is a proponent of laissez-fare economics.

Interviewer- Mr. Ryan, as a vice president will you  support the positions of Mitt Romney?

PR – Absolutely.

Interviewer -Now as I understand it, Mr. Romney believes that Abortion should be prohibited except in cases of rape or incest.  Are you prepared to forgo your belief in prohibiting abortion in cases of rape and incest?

PR – As Vice President I will support the President’s position.

Interviewer - You feel that life begins at conception. How did you come to decide to forgo your passionate adherence to your belief which is according to you a matter of life and death?

PR – It’s been very difficult. My personal belief is that women should not be allowed to choose. Abortion is immoral because it kills a human being, and should never be tolerated.

Interviewer - People out there want to know more about you; your inner self. What can you tell us about the things you enjoy most? With your clothes on, of course.

PR- Clothes on or off,  I enjoy most  fighting to free the average millionaire from being forced to share with those who are unsuccessful I support abolishing all taxes on dividends, capital gains and inheritance for these hurt the wealthiest the most.

Interviewer – But what about hunting and skinning the animal?

PR - I thoroughly enjoy both those activities as well. But I have to tell you, I enjoyed even more voting against the minimum wage bill.  The job creators should establish what wages and benefits, if any, they wish to give workers.

Interviewer - Can you think of other activities you really enjoy?

PR - Protecting gun rights. Giving people the opportunity to buy guns and rifles without having to wait 3 days before getting to enjoy the thrill of hunting and killing animals.  Perhaps  Obama doesn’t like hunters or feels threatened by a well-armed America. I’m proud to say that I voted YES on prohibiting product misuse lawsuits on gun manufacturers. 

Again let me reiterate the only social system consistent with this morality is full respect for individual rights embodied in laissez-faire capitalism.  Human beings may voluntarily choose to come to the aid of their neighbors, but not coerced to help the poor, the homeless and the losers.

@Michael, just love reading your posts. It's a wonder you're even able to hold down a real job (unless you're lying like the Romney/Ryan duo). I guess you and your boss are both working in the rocket science field?

I know it is a lot of work to understand the new requirements. Contact the Department of Labor or other government agency and ask them for a plain English explanation of the requirements for your particular business. Go online and Google the government agency that will administer the law. They should be able to provide you with an explanation of the requirements.

so you say reliably? but isnt all this green energy reliable? apparently not, because a tree hugger like you doesnt even think so. AND STOP CHANGING THE SUBJECT LIKE A CLASSIC LIBERAL. but if you want to change the subject, he should also give up his NON TAXABLE travel expenses. then you have his entertainment espenses, and his expense account.
