this is your last chance to read the book before the movie comes out. i have waited my whole life for this. when i was in high school i discovered ayn rand, it changed my life , and much to my delight, would end up in a conservative website framed by objectivism. i remember thinking, someday, once the internet is invented, this will be my political philosohpy and i will take it to the people.. life imitates art. we are dagney taggert and hank rearden (the protagonists) and the democratic party (led by one barrak obama... if that is your real name), is the government, and "mr. thompson". you are going to be seeing and hearing and feeling atlas shrugged a lot in the coming time until the 2012 election. as wonderfual as the original novel is, no, magnificient... the movie will better present to the masses, that big government is not only wrong, in this country, according to our constitution, it is immoral. i further suggest that this hollywood production will play a large roll in unseating the president of obama, how ultimately and deliciously ironic. how do you like us now. it looks good, no, great.
