Tell Paul Ryan to Put Down Ayn Rand
Paul Ryan, the author of the Republican budget, says he’s been inspired by the right-wing radical who called altruism “evil” and said the “weak” don’t deserve love – and now he's claiming his budget that slashes funding for struggling families upholds his faith values!
If Ryan is going to use his faith to boost his policies, he needs to be held accountable to its standards: so we're sending him a reminder.
For every 1,000 signatures we get, we’ll personally deliver one Bible to Paul Ryan’s DC office.
Our petition says:
Congressman Paul Ryan:
Ayn Rand’s philosophy of radical selfishness and disdain for the poor and struggling is antithetical to our faith values of justice, compassion and the common good. To remind you of these faith values we share, we are giving you these Bibles -- the sacred text of your own faith tradition. Next time you are seeking political inspiration, we hope you’ll turn to this instead of Ayn Rand.
