[....] Yes, there are a sizable number of Americans who believe government-funded programs like Medicare, food stamps, and um, fire departments, are bad for the country, and they make look to “Atlas Shrugged” in greater numbers for a confirmation of their libertarian beliefs. But like any niche audience that independent films cater to, they will remain just that: a niche audience.
