The Republican Tea Party Leadership has embraced the teachings and philosophy of the Atheist Author Ayn Rand. To understand the intentions of the Tea Party Leadership, take a long hard look at Ayn Rand.
Ayn Rand was born in Russia to non-practicing Jewish parents in 1905, educated in a Russian Communist Universtiy, and emigrated to the United States in 1926. Ayn Rand was impressed by the lavish lifestyles of New Yorkers in the "Roaring Twenties." Ayn Rand fell madly in love with UNrestricted Free Market Capitalism and the industrial and business Tycoons who made it all possible.
Ayn Rand's Tycoon Heroes were being attacked in Newspaper articles for their Greed and Selfishness, and their lack of regard for the safety and well being of their workers.
Ayn Rand's Father owned a successful Pharmacy in Russia which was taken from him by the Communists, and that was a contributing factor to Ayn Rand's Hatred of Communism. I don't blame her for that.
Ayn Rand wrote books defending the greed and selfishness of her Tycoon Heroes. Ayn Rand's books, including "Atlas Shrugged,"the Tea Party favorite, were her passport into New York High Society.
Ayn Rand made a lot of money from book sales and speaking engagements. Ayn Rand's likes and dislikes mirrored those of her Tycoon heroes.
Ayn Rand despised the Poor and the Working Class, and frequently referred to them as Parasites, and Moochers.
Ayn Rand said, "The Poor and the Working Class are Parasites feeding on the wealth accumulated by their intellectual superiors."
Ayn Rand despised Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment Insurance, and all other Social Safety net Programs, and she wanted all of them abolished and done away with.
The Republican Tea Party Heroine Ayn Rand said,
"Social Security and Unemployment Insurance are Hammocks that the people relax in, and these programs encourage laziness and a reluctance to work in the people."
Ayn Rand despised Christianity because it teaches Love and Compassion, attributes that Ayn Rand thoroughly detested.
Ayn Rand said, "Christianity is a sign of weakness in a Capitalist Society."
