Paul Ryan does not believe in freedom.

Some in the media are trying to portray Paul Ryan as some sort of Free Market Ayn Rand type ideologue. This is of course absurd. Regardless of any rhetoric he might have used in the past, the votes speak for themselves:

Yes on TARP
Yes on No Child Left Behind
Yes on Medicare Drug Benefit
Yes on Iraq War
Yes on Auto Bailout
Yes on Patriot Act

It makes perfect sense for Romney to pick this guy. They’re both big government neocons who believe in Empire. As for so called entitlement reform that Ryan has made his name on, he voted for the greatest increase in entitlements (Medicare Part D) since the Great Society. Now we’re supposed to believe he’s committed to cuts in Medicare? Please.
