Fast Talkers can RIp You Off

Argumentum Ad Baculum I think Republicans use this form of argument, especially Paul Ryan. If you don't check the facts you may fear the invented consequences of not agreeing with him. In John Locke's context for example, Ryan's says rights are provided by nature & God, it shouldn't be from government to Man. But he ignores that government is a social contract, existing in the state of Nature. His implied argument is that nature and God are good. But government is unnecessary. So do what's good and remove what is unnecessary. It baffles me why anyone would agree with the GOP conservatives, unless their prerogative is privatization and greed.
