Although I completely disagree with Lyin Paul Ryan about his despicable plan for our nation’s economy, there was a time I believed that he was sincerely concerned about the future of our nation and the welfare of our nation’s people. He made fools out of many of us. He has proven himself to be a pathological liar, and the country’s biggest hypocrite.
Americans have short memories, but I don’t. Almost every credible man or woman who called themselves ‘Republicans’ denounced Donald Trump throughout the 2016 historically long campaign season. They called themselves “never Trump,” or “dump Trump” Republicans. GOP politicians recognized Trump’s racism, and his lack of morals. When the “Access Hollywood,” and “The Apprentice” tapes were revealed, Lyin Paul Ryan led Republicans in expressing his outrage and claimed that he could never support such a vile and reprehensible man as the President of the United States.
Here we are in 2017. Lyin Ryan has shackled his future to Trump’s gigantic derriere. Knowing that Trumpcare was the worst piece of legislation to ever be presented in the House, Ryan rushed it through and eventually found that singular vote to secure its passage.
Ryan has been consistent in his efforts to eliminate Medicaid. Trumpcare will accomplish most of his goal. The American people are opposed to Trumpcare; only 17 percent approve of the bill. Republicans refuse to listen to the people; at least 99 percent of us. They serve their masters well, and will attempt to serve every wish of their illegitimate and deplorable party’s leader.
Lyin Ryan, as are the other 434 members of the House, is up for reelection in November of 2018. Ryan began is tenure in 1999, having won his seat in Wisconsin’s first district. In 2018, his challenger will be an iron worker by the name of Randy Bryce. Bryce failed to win a seat in the state legislature in both 2012 and 2014, but is confident he can be successful in his effort to unseat Lyin Ryan.
“I’ve spent my entire life in southeastern Wisconsin,” Bryce tells Wisconsinites. “I can see what people need. I can do so much more, and I will do so much more, taking my voice — taking our voice, and what we need — to Washington, D.C.”
Mr. Bryce says that ‘he has learned a lot, and the people of Wisconsin know him well.’
Lyin Ryan’s most ferocious challenger will be Paul Ryan. His despicable actions in the last five months will not go unnoticed by the good people of Wisconsin. The only question is; ‘will they have the common sense to ignore the “R” next to Lyin Ryan’s name on the ballot?’ Will they realize that Lyin Ryan is not a true Republican? Like his master, he is an opportunist who has no interest in serving the people of Wisconsin or the people of our nation.
I have a dream; and that dream includes losses in 2018 by Lyin Ryan and other hypocritical ‘Republicans in name only.’ Democrats and Independents must regain control of the House and remove Trump’s power. Let’s do it!
