A Rand's Fountainhead, Toohey's speech

will tell you everything that you need to know about the leftists. They dont care if the world is trashed, as long as THEY "rule" over what's left. They are sick, sick people.

Obviously, you haven't read Atlas Shrugged OR The Fountainhead. If you had you'd know that they are based on the theory of objectivism. Rand was asked about her definition of objectivism. This was her answer:

"My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute."

She went on to say this: Objectivism holds that there is no greater moral goal than achieving happiness.

I'm a liberal and I agree...completely. Rand believed in moral integrity and respect for the rights of others.

This is one of the reasons I refused to support Donald Trump. He's about the most immoral man I've ever experienced.
Thanks from tristanrobin and Hollywood

this new one is a kid, I believe - he picks up catchy phrases and sound bytes and posts them with no real idea what they mean. Just like this thread.

have you read about his being trailed by the government fantasies?

classic case of starved for attention kid
Thanks from Hollywood and Clara007

AND of course we want Sabcat to be a happy camper.

that's just a lie

she paid in millions to the IRS and social security. So why should she not get some of it back, if she qualified, hmm? The woman's books have sold 10's of millions of copies, and she got a 15% royalty on RETAIL price of Atlas Shrugged, and many of those millions were hardbacks, to libraries. She paid more into the system than 100 people like you ever will.
