Ayn Rand's 1961 address to the GOP is even more relevant today

I got this from Reut R. Cohen's website. She's an interesting person and you may enjoy romping around the site. The chiding that Ayn Rand gives the GOP is really choice.

Reut Cohen also had this comment, which I think says it perfectly:
This is even more relevant today than when Ayn Rand explained the necessity of favoring individual rights and reason in 1961. Today we can substitute "Islamists" for "Communists." The GOP should favor reason and individual rights--and move away from faith-based politics. Religion, though it should be respected as a person's right, is a private matter and the forefathers of the United States intended it to be this way.
