100 eighth graders boycott picture with Paul Ryan during Washington field trip.

Courtesy of Common Dreams: 

One hundred eighth grade students refused to be photographed with Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to the nation's capital because they "didn't want to be associated with a person who puts his party before his country," as one student put it. 

According to reporting, roughly half of the 200 students who traveled from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey protested the photo-op on Thursday, watching instead from a parking lot across the street. 

"It's not just a picture," eighth grade student Matthew Malespina told the local ABC News affiliate. "It's being associated with a person who puts his party before his country." 

Most recently, Ryan has come under fire for forcing through legislation that would strip healthcare from 23 million Americans.

Well look at that, we now live in a country where eighth grade students have more integrity than the entire Republican party. 

Looks like the future might be in good hands after all.

    This kids compete quote:
    "I don't want to be associated with a man who puts his party before his country," Matthew said. "I don't like to take a picture with somebody that I can't associate with. Let's say somebody is not nice to me at school, for example. I wouldn't take a picture with them, probably."
    This kid is smarter than most republicans. OK, low bar, but still.

    Ayn Randian Paul Ryan has been on the public dole almost his entire adult life yet would take away from millions healthcare and Social Security. His college education was financed (in part at least) by Social Security survivor benefits. He got his, screw everyone else. He is a disgusting sociopathic POS.
