...a battle royale between a great mind, and the supposition of a great mind. Reason and logic clashing with "hope and change".
Let's see how many rounds this fight goes....the occasional quote from the great Ayn Rand will be juxtaposed with some pearl of wisdom from The One (like this one, I guess), and we'll discuss the merits of each.
Other times, it will stand alone as a self-evident rebuke of the policies of our Socialist president and Congress...like this one:
"The skyline of New York is a monument of a splendor that no pyramids or palaces will ever equal or approach. But America's skyscrapers were not built by public funds nor for a public purpose: they were built by the energy, initiative and wealth of private individuals for personal profit. And, instead of impoverishing the people, these skyscrapers, as they rose higher and higher, kept raising the people's standard of living ..."
What has socialism ever built, besides legacies of hopelessness, poverty, and despair?
Round 1 to Rand....
