Even more relevant than when she said it in 1961.

Hopefully, we will see in our lifetimes a realignment of the GOP in favor of reason and individual rights and away from faith and tradition. Religion is a private matter.

As the Tea Party movement takes hold- we're seeing the ugly specter of religious intolerance gaining strength to rip apart the coalition of patriots we've assembled. Commentator Glenn Beck has openly declared that religion is the only basis on which the movement can proceed. At the same time, he depends on Objectivist commentators and secular pro-capitalists to make his economic and ideological case. You can't use rational men and women's ideas and simultaneously damn them for being rational.

Ayn Rand was deceitful and pathetic. Rand herself received Social Security payments and Medicare benefits under the name of Ann O'Connor (her husband was Frank O'Connor)

Ayn Rand was a LYING sophist. Her eyes are always shifted to the side, because she is trying to hide the fact that she really worships Satan.

I find it amazing how the words of Ayn Rand of over 50 years ago are almost exactly what I observe today. I have always thought of myself as a individual with individual rights. What Ayn Rand does for me, is confirm that I was correct all along, and give me the intellectual filler so I can present strong arguments for man's freedom from other men,--freedom from a ruling class,---as we were founded in the USA.

Religion is a private matter of every single individual, not for a group of individuals. The concept of collective rights itself is a very problematic communist concept. It can lead only to the marriage institution which is a destruction of the individual.
The poor lie and cheat, to eat and stay warm, but the rich lie and cheat, to buy an extra Jaguar and summer home with a beach front deck. One is DEFINITELY worse than the other.
