Chris Rants, Sioux City Journal (IA) Atlas Shrugged |Paul Ryan | “I grew up reading Ayn Rand, and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff.” --U.S. Representative Paul Ryan, Republican vice presidential candidate, in a 2005 speech. That excites me. I used to give away copies of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” to legislators, staffers, interns, and pages at the capitol.
