Paul Ryan Next Speaker of the House?

There is a unifying label for the agenda of the GOP, but it's a toss-up between Pure Natural Selection and Passive Eugenics. They both kind of mean the same thing. It could also be called Objectivism, a philosophy touted by Ayn Rand.

I sense that Ayn Rand wasn't really promoting the idea as much as she was really exposing the heart of true human behavior: An unmitigated sense of self preservation, a world without health care, where only the strong survive.

The problem with this idea is that people who are weakest of mind are self-aggrandizing sufferers of the Dunning Kruker Effect, and wouldn't last a day on the African Savannah.

So, Paul Ryan's voting record and social values are not really surprising.
