Ayn Rand was a hypocrite!  She wrote about things she never intended herself to live by or die by (her dependence on Social Security and Medicare).  So ultimately she never believed.

Ayn Rand is dead and so is most of her work.  But her hellish spawn lives on.  Ron Paul named his son Rand and he now serves in the U.S. Senate.  Paul Ryan the Republican Representative who wants to end Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, says his main motivator was Ayn Rand (who under an assumed name in later life took both Social Security and Medicare).  He requires his staff to read several of her books or resign.

These are dangerous people who are using a sex cult’s teachings to try and take over a nation (Ayn Rand had frequent orgies and one of her concubines was Alan Greenspan—it must have been her Woody Allen weakness).   Remember Alan, he admitted that he didn’t think we would have a recession if he just kept propping up the economy; he was totally unaware of how bad things really were…..

The attempts to bring back the Ayn Rand philosophy is evident in the release of films and reprinted books in 2010 financed by the likes of the billionaire Koch Brothers:

Remember please:  MOST people who possess more cognitive acuity than a sea-urchin regard any discussion of Ayn Rand as the equivalent of intellectual, philosophical, and/or literary coprophagy.

Rand also admired psychopath William Edward Hickman, see e.g. http://www.thepinkflamingoblog.com/2011/04/27/ayn-rand-the-psychopath-who-inspired-the-libertarians.  He is the “hero” of her novels and actually was a kidnapper and child killer.

Conscious means with knowledge; Conservatives see it as against science.
