    I've read Rand's non-fiction but never read her fiction so I don't know. Can anyone tell me. Thanks

    any reason to say I'm not a libertarian?? I suppose if you had one you would have presented it to bolster your case. Maybe you just forgot??

    How about the fact that every fucking post you make is about everything being the fault of liberals?

    Der Übermensch.

    Rand is merely Nietzsche Lite for Americans; she’s utterly unoriginal.

    poor dear, I guess you didn't know that modern liberals( for government) and libertarians (for freedom from government) are exact oppposites??

    No, they're not. I'm pretty sure this is why he's saying you're not a libertarian.

    So you mean I got it backwards?? Liberals are opposed to government while libertarians seek bigger and bigger magical liberal Nazi fascist socialist government programs to solve all or problems???
