The Truth about Paul Ryan

Updated on August 15, 2012

Get the truth about Paul Ryan

Who is this guy?

We know so little about him, but he's been anointed as the Vice President on the Republican Ticket for 2012. Willard Mitt Romney introduced him as "the next President of the United States!" He corrected himself after the applause faded, but did a grain of honesty slip out? Does Mitt know something that we do not? The truth will emerge: it always does.

He's young, vigorous, and attractive, relatively speaking. He's married. He used to work at McDonald's. No one disputes these facts. We must learn more before deploying our constitutionally-mandated right to vote. Don't stroll to the polls in November without digging deeper for more truth.

His Home State

Ryan was born and raised in Wisconsin, a United States of America state. This would seem innocuous on the surface, until one realizes that film star Don Ameche was also born in Wisconsin. Ameche appeared in the movie Cocoon, directed by Ron Howard. Mr. Howard is an unabashed Barack Hussein Obama supporter, having gone as far as to produce a wildly supportive video during Obama's last presidential campaign. In the video he portrays himself and heartily endorses the Democrat's candidate. The video was hosted on for a time, but has been relegated to the basement of the Internet since then. It can be found with a little serious Googling.

His college years

Mr Ryan attended Miami University in Ohio. He earned two degrees there. He did not attend college in his home state of Wisconsin, which has several reputable schools. Miami of Ohio often gets confused with The University of Miami in Florida in the minds of people who do not live within a 10 mile radius of Oxford, Ohio. Why Mr Ryan chose to matriculate at an institution of higher learning that is so often misinterpreted as another institute of higher learning has not been adequately explained. Hopefully this issue will arise during the vice-presidential candidates' debate after the economy and foreign policy and health care have been addressed.

Political Service

Mr Ryan, on his own web site, lists four different offices in his contact information. Three of the offices are in Wisconsin: Jonesville, Racine, Kenosha. The fourth office is described as 'mobile' and includes a detailed schedule of locations through September 26, 2012. No explanation is given as to why September 27 and beyond is not included in the schedule. In many occasions the 'mobile' office is scheduled to appear in the parking lots of specific police departments, town halls, and sheriff's departments in Wisconsin. A closer examination of the schedule reveals that the 'mobile' office will be 'open' for 1 to 1 1/2 hours at each stop. Mr. Ryan's web site does not adequately explain what the 'mobile' office is doing for the remainder of day, if anything. No indication is given as to whether or not the 'mobile' office is properly maintained or licensed.

Ryan's Political Campaigns

Mr. Ryan successfully campaigned for the US House of Representatives in 1998 and every two years since then. He did not successfully campaign in 1996. In 1998 he defeated Democratic candidate Lydia Carol Spotswood by a score of 57% to 43%. This was the low-water mark for Mr Ryan's Republican Machine in terms of voter support.

Garnering 64% and then 68% of the popular vote in the 2008 and 2010 general elections respectively, Mr. Ryan is projected by ABC news to be on track to win 100% of the vote in the 2026 election.

Paul Ryan's Religion

Mr. Ryan is an avowed Catholic. The vast majority of Americans are not Catholic. According to, which is hardly ever wrong about this type of thing, only 26% of Ryan's fellow citizens are Catholic. Charles Keating, Jr., of nearby Cincinnati, Ohio is also a Catholic. Mr. Keating was convicted in both federal and state court on many counts of fraud, racketeering, and conspiracy. His Savings and Loan, Lincoln, eventually failed, was by seized federal officials, and required 3 billion in government bailouts. Throughout it all, Mr. Keating attempted to use his political influence to convince no less than 5 US Senators to give special considerations to his businesses, including Lincoln Financial.

This type of activity is condoned in Janesville. No one denies it.

His Home Town

Janesville, Wisconsin, is home to approximately 63,575 people. Mr. Ryan is undoubtedly one of them: this fact is not in dispute. The United States includes over 314,161,000 people: simple arithmetic indicates that only .02% of the populace might come in contact with Mr. Ryan on any given day.

According to the 2012 US Census, there are almost no Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islanders living in Janesville. Janesville is home to Bessie, a 16-foot-tall, 20-foot-long, one-ton fiberglass cow. She can be observed at 2101 Morse Street.

      I am suspicious about your inclusion of simple arithmetic in a sentence that also contains the words "the populace might come in contact with Mr. Ryan on any given day."

      To imply that coming into contact with Mr. Ryan, an avowed Catholic so chillingly described by you, might have a certainty akin to that associated with simple arithmetic could very well send the survivalist citizens of your country scurrying into their underground shelters before election day.

      Which would give the "unabashed Barrack Hussein Obama supporter(s)" full reign to decide the next four years of your life. Which makes me suspicious that you are a closet Democrat. Ha!

      I'm glad you're doing homework on him, because it's evident the FBI and Secret Service don't do a background check on candidates.

      Thanks for the article on Ryan. I can see how his looks and energy can get people pumped up but it's always wise to research someone that pops up in the political scene like this. I appreciate the information.

      That IS very suspicious, nicomp, that Ryan would choose to attend a university so often confused as the U of Miami. Thanks for shedding light on his perambulations. Especially that mobile office - very strange!
