DownWithTyranny!: Rob Zerban vs… Ayn Rand

Part of Rob Zerban’s response about Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) Ayn Rand fetish:

I have also gotten many questions about the influence Ayn Rand has had on Paul Ryan. I believe this selfish atheistic philosophy has played a formative role in Paul Ryan’s career. Ayn Rand’s icy cold social Darwinism is popular among boys in High School because it is a philosophy without responsibility. It says that whatever benefits you is what is right and good. He is a huge fan of Ayn Rand and his budget may well me the best example of selfishness yet in government.

Selfishness, including the kind Ayn Rand is so fond of, is exactly what is wrong with this country. We have companies that spill oil and crash the economy without a care in the world. We have politicians that sell out students, seniors, and middle class families for campaign contributions. All of this selfish behavior has hurt our country and it is clear that Paul Ryan’s philosophy is a root cause of this behavior.
