For fiction it is accurate in its assessment of government leaders manipulating the system. Perhaps you liberals could heed some of Rand's advice or do you really want to propagate the moocher class into oblivion? Your actions say you do........
Mitt Romney chose Paul Ryan to be his running mate. Since his teens, Ryan has been a big fan of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged." In 2005, he told The Atlas Society that the novel shaped his "values system" -- and that speech has launched a number of recent columns by liberals aghast at Ryan's taste in literature.

"Almost everybody in the conservative movement has read Ayn Rand. She gives a moral dimension to defending the free enterprise system," alternate delegate Bill Evers of Stanford's Hoover Institution told me Monday morning as the California GOP delegation gathered.
