Ayn Rand Would Hate Today’s GOP
Since Rand fanboy Paul Ryan gave his big speech at the RNC last night, it’s an appropriate time to remind ourselves how much she would despise the Bible-thumping party that claims to revere her.
Here’s her thoughts in 1981 on Saint Ronald Of Reagan:
The appalling disgrace of his administration is his connection with the so-called ‘Moral Majority’ and sundry other TV religionists, who are struggling—apparently with his approval—to take us back to the Middle Ages, via the unconstitutional union of religion and politics.
Observe Reagan’s futile attempts to arouse the country by some sort of inspirational appeal. He is right in thinking that the country needs an inspirational element. But he will not find it in the God-Family-Tradition swamp.
