"Government would be so starved of resources that, by 2050, it wouldn’t have enough money for core functions like food inspections and highway maintenance."
 
No USDA or Dept of Transportation by 2050? Wow...that's what I want to see!

This is such and alarming and accurate article I thought I would Xpost 
it here. There appears to be some ayn rand connection with ryan.
Anyone who thinks any rand is cool and therefore ryan must be cool too, 
read the following article. Romney-Ryan will be bad news for the world 
of permaculture, especially for those permaculturists trying to hang on 
financially and stick with their committment to that lifestyle and 
livlihood. Otherwise it will be the 60's revisited, tune in and drop 
out, survive with help of others (those "others" do not include the 
right wing). Don't bother turning on, a waste of time unless it is 
through meditation (ever wonder why the Tibetan Buddhist Monks are so 
important to world sanity?).

The Conservative Psyche: How Ordinary People Come to Embrace the Cruelty 
of Paul Ryan and Other Right-Wingers
Scientific research into the way we think explains the reasons decent 
people wind up supporting horrific policies.
August 19, 2012  |

Earlier this year, Democratic operatives looking for the best way to 
define Mitt Romney discovered something interesting about Paul Ryan's 
budget. The New York Times reported that when the details of his 
proposals were run past focus groups, they found that the plan is so 
cruel that voters “ simply refused to believe any politician would do 
such a thing.”

In addition to phasing out the Earned Income Tax Credit that keeps 
millions of American families above the poverty line and cutting funding 
for children's healthcare in half, Jonathan Cohn described the “America 
that Paul Ryan envisions” like this:

    Many millions of working-age Americans would lose health insurance. 
Senior citizens would anguish over whether to pay their rent or their 
medical bills, in a way they haven’t since the 1960s. Government would 
be so starved of resources that, by 2050, it wouldn’t have enough money 
for core functions like food inspections and highway maintenance.
