The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“A businessman cannot force you to buy his product; if he makes a mistake, he suffers the consequences; if he fails, he takes the loss. If bureaucrat makes a mistake, you suffer the consequences; if he fails, he passes the loss on to you.” – Ayn Rand


  1. Yeah, no thanks on Fort Galt.
    I Doubt there will be enough ” certified wood” for everyone to stay warm, not to mention, my planned shooting range might upset a few of these hippies.

  2. Rand was an Atheist, heavy drinker, Psych patient, who had so many affairs’ that her husband killed himself over it. Not someone a Christian should be quoting ?

    1. Ayn Rand’s wrong headed personal demons and her solid libertarian philosophy are two different things. I don’t know about you, but I believe Ayn Rand’s personal demons don’t distract from her solid libertarian philosophy. The quote is absolutely correct as long as the business person isn’t a rent seeker, someone who seeks protections from the same bureaucrats and politicians who bear no responsibility for their actions.

      “Rand was an Atheist”, that’s between her and God. She was a “heavy drinker”, that’s between her and her liver and her and her doctor. She was a “psych patient”, that too is between her and her doctors. She had “so many affairs that her husband killed himself over it”, that too is between her and, in all honesty, her weak a$$ husband. All these faults extend from her wrong headed “Objectivism”. Yet it still doesn’t distract from her solid, 99% correct, libertarian philosophy.

      As Christians, aren’t we supposed to forgive the bad and honor and cherish the good in people? The one thing I have learned since I excepted libertarianism as a political and personal philosophy, and also being Christian, is that God and Christ are very libertarian. The decisions we make are up to us as individuals. The responsibility for those decisions falls upon us as individuals. Aren’t Christ’s teachings all about personal responsibility and an individual relationship with God? With prayer, you decide for yourself and take responsibility for you own actions. You ask forgiveness when you screw up, and give thanks when you don’t . Sounds pretty libertarian to me. Thank you Jesus.
