Re: Is Paul Ryan for or against Ayn Rand?
Yeah, I agree with NC.
The author is postulating that there is somehow a contradiction and that it will tear him from a voting block. I don't buy that one bit.
I've read Atlas Shrugged and loved it. Rand's philosophies on the human condition is something I whole-heartidly agree with. Her personal views on abortion or faith don't enter into the equation. I am a huge U2 fan but that does not mean I live my life as they do. In fact, I have almost nothing in common with their personal views on politics.
I respect her work. That does not mean I am in lockstep with how she lived her life. I imagine it's the same for Ryan.
