Since DU is such a big tent these days. Shouldn't there be a forum devoted to the works of Ayn Rand?

1. Sure, why not. She was a feminist you know.

 

And she approved of gay marriage and secularism.

6. She did despise the fundies

along with pretty much everyone else but at least that's something I have in common with her.

8. William F Buckley hated and feared her.

 

Ayn Rand is what most of the world thinks of as a "liberal" (classic liberal).

Amazingly, she would be most like George Soros today. Soros has donated more money to fight socialism than anyone - see the Velvet and Rose revolutions.

10. But she thought William Edward Hickman - the man who kidnapped, murdered, and dismembered

12-year-old Marion Parker - was totally AWESOME!

16. Because this is a forum for liberals not libertarians...

Ayn Rand's views are vile and should not be tolerated here.

36. She loved the guy who dismembered a twelve-year-old girl

Ayn Rand -- a heroine for human rights (=male serial killer), and so on. *retches*

let's devote one of the shelves in the "good reads" section to Ann Coulter books. I hear she's one hell of an author!

I have noticed a few posters who would be right at home on an Ayn Rand forum.

34. Ahhh, I don't think you've been paying attention.

Seriously, you haven't been paying attention. I noticed that although you have a high post count, you haven't posted anything recently. I would appreciate it more if you actually posted something that is actually relevant.

Suddenly, you post a lot of posts that are completely irrelevant to anything that we are talking about. As if you ignore everything that has been discussed and suddenly you come in with Talking Points that we are all supposed to be Ga-Ga over.

Who are you? Should we actually care about anything you say?
