  9. First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." That is more than merely "to establish its freedom."

  12. The "objectivist belief" you give is quite different from what's here. Also, note the conditional clause, in a fully free society, which isn't reality. The belief you give is an anarchist one, and Ayn Rand was emphatically against anarchy.
  13. Trump's 2005 Form 1040 is shown here w/o the supplemental schedules/forms, e.g. Form 6251 - Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT). Page 2 shows a pre-AMT tax = $5,310,616, AMT tax = $31,261,179, resulting in a total tax = $36,571,795. Line 21 on Trump's 1040 page 1 is -$103,201,242. Taxable income for AMT purposes ignores this loss, which probably explains most of Trump's AMT tax. The mysterious Line 21 is the same one Trump used in 1995 to declare a loss > $915 million.
