Ayn Rand Wouldnâ€™t Approve of Paul Ryan - NYTimes.com
Jared Sperli stashed this in politics
While Rand, an atheist, did enjoy a good Christmas celebration for its cheerful commercialism, she would have scoffed at the idea of public service. And though Mr. Ryanâ€™s advocacy of steep cuts in government spending would have pleased her, she would have vehemently opposed his social conservatism and hawkish foreign policy. She would have denounced Mr. Ryan as she denounced Ronald Reagan, for trying â€śto take us back to the Middle Ages, via the unconstitutional union of religion and politics.â€ť
Paul Ryan likes Ayn Rand's selfishness but not her atheism.
Just like he likes Rage Against the Machine's music but not their lyrics.
