Bound to surprise nobody, economic fascist Mitt Romney selected economic fascist Paul Ryan to be his running mate:
Mitt Romney has named Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate.
“Mitt’s choice for VP is Paul Ryan. Spread the word about America’s Comeback Team. #RomneyRyan2012,” was the message the Romney campaign sent out via their VP app early this morning.
I’m not throwing the word fascist around for shock factor. Both individuals support a marriage between the state and private enterprise, which is one of the planks of fascism. Paul Ryan voted for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), which was an interference in the free market that rewarded failing companies instead of letting them die off. He also supported making the PATRIOT Act permanent and believes the state should be allowed to perform warrantless wiretaps.
Needless to say Romney’s running mate is very similar to Romney.
