Rep. Paul Ryan’s governmental guru
Think the Tea Party Knows About This?
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is so enamored of novelist and charleton “philosopher” Ayn Rand that he has all his staff members read her ponderous novels. Signs quoting Rand and asking “Where’s John Gault?” – one of her characters -increasingly pop up at Tea Party and republican rallies across the country.
But there is much her modern day fans don’t know about Rand, like using her almost hypnotic cultish power to manipulate her followers into sexual partner swapping arrangements for her own pleasure or her dependence upon Medicare and Social Security payments late in her life.
But there’s more, for example, check out this quote from Rand…
“An embryo has no rights. Rights do not pertain to a potential, only to an actual being. A child cannot acquire any rights until it is born. The living take precedence over the not-yet-living (or the unborn).”
“Abortion is a moral right”– Ayn Rand
Wonder how that little gem would go over at a Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin or Donald Trump rally?
