Ryan: "I would say courage is on the ballot. What governor or state legislator is going to have the courage of addressing the structural problems of their state, if when they do that this is what happens to them. That is really profound."
Democracy to Paul Ryan is a "profound" repugnant idea.
Ryan is saying you should never question your "courageous leaders," the controlling authority, the ones who are doing things you don't want them to do. It doesn't even matter if half of the voting age public signed a petition to throw that leader out of office. That penalizes courage and authority.
Such a shocking notion is unfortunately still under the media radar. This is not a minor comment by Ryan, but a point blank admission he has stated over and over, that we're on the path to an authoritarian Republican state.
Maybe the word democracy sounds too much like the Democratic Party?
Ryan treats dissenters like whiny children who don't want to take the bad tasting medicine. It's for our own good, don't cha know.
As for the recall, it wasn't a reaction to anything Scott Walker did, was it? Can you say "autocrat?"
