To Clara007: Forcing Americans to fund the tax collector’s morality is neither moral, nor does it respect the Rights of others.

Allow me to put Ayn Rand’s theory of objectivism in perspective:



p.s. If you intend to respond do so without editing my reply.

I find it very amusing how many Republicans claim to avidly follow Ayn Rand while at the same time speaking about how much they love Baby Jesus. Paul Ryan, for example, who claims to be a Catholic while adoring the 100% anti-Christian "me me me" attitudes shown in Rand's books. Rand's books were little more than a celebration of selfishness, and it's telling the GOP adores her so much. Rand, btw, had utter contempt for religion. Which is why it's so amusing that people like Paul Ryan adore her so much.

Here's a snippet from an interview with Playboy where Rand explains her religious belief:


Has no religion, in your estimation, ever offered anything of constructive value to human life?


Qua religion, no—in the sense of blind belief, belief unsupported by, or contrary to, the facts of reality and the conclusions of reason. Faith, as such, is extremely detrimental to human life: it is the negation of reason. But you must remember that religion is an early form of philosophy, that the first attempts to explain the universe, to give a coherent frame of reference to man's life and a code of moral values, were made by religion, before men graduated or developed enough to have philosophy.
Thanks from Clara007
