Ryan to denounce liberal progressivism, Clinton’s vision in Madison speech

Liberals intend to make their progressive experiment “an arrogant, condescending and paternalistic reality,” House Speaker Paul Ryan will tell College Republicans in Madison today.

Ryan’s office released excerpts of his planned speech in which he will argue why liberal progressivism doesn’t work and say Hillary Clinton would continue the approach.

Ryan will tell the students liberal progressivism is a government for the elites, not the people.

“You see, when Hillary Clinton says we are ‘stronger together,’ what she means is we are stronger if we are all subject to the state,” Ryan will say. “What she means is we are stronger if we give up our ties of responsibility to one another and hand all of that over to government. But there is no strength in that. Only hubris. Only the arrogance to assume we are better off if we fall in line and bow down to our betters.”

Ryan will argue Republicans are offering a bold agenda on “a better way that means less government and more freedom.” It is part of a choice between being positive and inclusive while reclaiming the country’s founding principles and being “overrun with liberal progressivism” with more drift, despair and decline.

The speech comes following a tense week between the speaker and GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Ryan has spent much of the summer and early fall arguing that he supported Trump for president because a Republican president would make it more likely that the House GOP agenda would be enacted.

But he disinvited Trump from a rally in Walworth County last weekend and told fellow House Republicans on a call earlier this week that he will not defend the Republican nominee or campaign with him over the next month following the release of a 2005 videotape of Trump making vulgar comments about women.

Ryan will ask the students to reflect on the choice facing them.
“It is important that we take a step back and reflect on what this election is ultimately about,” Ryan was to say. “Beneath all the ugliness lies a long running debate between two governing philosophies: one that is in keeping with our nation’s founding principles -- like freedom and equality -- and another that seeks to replace them.”
