Calling John Galt!

Rustmeister posted a link worth noting. It seems that some people are beginning to pay attention to truths formerly known and recently ignored. Glad to hear it...

While they are at the bookstore, may I recommend also: "The Fountainhead", "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal", "The Federalist Papers", "The Anti-Federalist Papers", and "Democracy in America"? These books, if fully understood, present a picture of how our nation was envisioned at creation and what ideas and actions threaten it. The novels by Ayn Rand are works of fiction, yet wholly accurate from a legalistic and moral point of view (and the laws spoken of in Atlas Shrugged existed in America at the time of printing in 1957). The balance of the books listed are insightful essays on the virtues of Capitalism, republican (little R) government, and the pitfalls of Democracy and Statism.

Until you have read and understand these books, you will be unprepared to discuss the political situation in America today and why MOST of what the Federal Government does today is completely unconstitutional.

Since the Press today is still concerned with "Minority Rights", and believes that the Democratic Party is the only group capable of ensuring fairness and equality, I will leave you with this quote. Please reflect on the actions of the Dems today in contrast to the ideal presented here:

"The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities." -Ayn Rand
