• • Choosing a Candidate After the Michigan and Arizona Primaries 
,
As a history major in college, I studied Ayn Rand and the conservative movement. I am now two years out of college and was rooting for Ron Paul to win the nomination.

• • • Ayn Rand’s early life 
,
Ayn Rand Institute  |Atlas Shrugged  |We The Living  |Personal life  |Image  |Inaccurate  | Before she wrote bestselling novels, who was Ayn Rand? Ayn Rand’s early life came to define how she grew up and the ideas that she held. In part, this was because of the difficult experience she had growing up during the Communist takeover of Russia.

• • • The 4 top books of Ayn Rand 
,
Atlas Shrugged  |Night of January 16th  |The Fountainhead  |We The Living  |Capitalism  |Image  | For those dedicated Rand enthusiasts, you will note that I left all of her non-fiction works off of the list. This is for several reasons. Ayn Rand had wrote of her belief that philosophers should create novels around their philosophies. She believed the creation of it would not only show the readers more aptly what the philosophy entailed, but would also help the philosopher to learn exactly what the boundaries their philosophy held and if it were workable in a real world. If characters in a book could not believably act according to the philosophy, then it could stand no chance in reality. For this reason then, I have chosen Rand’s fiction works.

• • Where did the Tea Party come from? 
,
Ayn Rand Institute  |Atlas Shrugged  |The Fountainhead  |Capitalism  |Individualism  | In the 1960s, groups such as the Young Americans for Freedom began to form under the prevalence of leaders like William Buckley and Russell Kirk. Their ideas were founded in the idea of a small government, civil liberties, economic freedom, the constitution and anti-communism. Groups supporting these causes began to pop up around the country and some of their adherents even began to form a separate branch of Objectivists. Fueled by Ayn Rand’s pro-capitalist, pro-individual stance, they tried to set up a new ideal world, where everyone was judged off of their abilities and capabilities.
