British agent Paul Ryan can't resist adding insult to injury

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan will warn at AEI today that the country is at a “tipping point” in its debt crisis that threatens to “curtail free enterprise” and lead to a “gradual moral-political decline as dependency and passivity weaken the nation’s character.”
[...]
In his noontime AEI address, Ryan will argue that keeping the budget on the beaten path could “weaken our national identity in ways that may not be reversible.”
[...]
... and tax reform that “starts not by asking what is the ‘right mix’ of tax increases and spending cuts to balance the budget, but by asking what is the purpose of government, and then raising only as much revenue as the government needs to fund the things it is supposed to be doing.”

This is basically code for "Hitler's economist was right." If this latter-day Crown agent really wanted to know the purpose of our government, he should pull his head out of The Collected Works of Friedrich Nietzsche (partly "ghost-written" by Satan) and read the Constitution.
