This... Man, does this bring joy to my heart. Republican donor from Virginia Beach sues GOP, accusing the party of fraud over failed Obamacare repeal by Bill Bartel and Scott Daugherty The Virginian-Pilot August 4, 2017 From the article: On the free market, you don't get to sell a service if you have no intention of fulfilling it. That's called fraud. You can get away with it and keep the money (at least for a little bit) if you pretend to do the service while proving you are blocked. But when you are no longer blocked, you can no longer pretend. I fully agree that the same standard should apply to politicians. If the Republican Party solicited money under false pretenses, they should give it back. Michael
The author of Goddess of the Market, a genuinely interesting and useful bio on Ayn Rand, writes in Bloomberg that if Mitt Romney loses, it will be the end of the Republicans' and the conservatives' fascination with Ayn Rand. No,...really. (see link, below) And you thought that Mitt was a me-too, middle-of-the-roader closet liberal! Nope. Just because he chose Ryan as his running mate that makes him an advocate of Objectivism (even though Ryan dis-avowed his allegiance to Ayn Rand, Yup, Mitt a loyal lifelong member and one-time "Bishop" of the Mormon church (whose religion bears no similarity on ethical stances with those of Ayn Rand), was really preaching Objectivism all along. Disguised so well that bona fide Objectivists did not recognize it. How do we know?. Well, wasn't Paul Ryan a one-time admirer of Rand? And werent there Rand admirers in the Republican Party who ultimately backed Mitt as an "anything-but-Obama" alternative. Anyway, Dr. Burns so asserts. Probably just what the crony-capitalists at Bloomberg would want to hear. .http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-06/will-this-election-settle-republicans-ayn-rand-debate-.html
