Paul Ryan Challenged By Town Hall Constituents Over Previous Praise Of Ayn Rand | ThinkProgress


JANESVILLE, Wisconsin — Last month, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) disavowed his one-time political muse, Ayn Rand, because of her “atheist philosophy.” Some of his constituents, however, aren’t buying it.

Ignoring the fact your post is anti-woman, and disparaging of a well read female author...

Are you saying you have to be athiest to like Ayn Rand?

It's not possible to denounce her position on athiesm, while praising other things she said?

If not, then I have to denounce everything you have done given you are a member of the global warming Cabal.

...And I really liked you anti-corporate bailout attitudes...

Kevin, if you read the articles about this, Paul Ryan is disavowing Ayn Rand and what she said. He places no more value in it.

Mark is pointing out that Ryan earlier embraced her and used her as a base for many of his political ideas. Mark's comment is not about Rand, but is about Paul Ryan's complete reversal of his beliefs in what Rand says.

Your own biases get in the way your common sense.
