Noted speed freak, serial-killer fangirl, and Tea Party hero Ayn Rand was also a kleptoparasite, sneakily gobbling up taxpayer funds under an assumed name [note: it might have been her legal name] to pay for her medical treatments after she got lung cancer.
An interview with Evva Pryror, a social worker and consultant to Miss Rand's law firm of Ernst, Cane, Gitlin and Winick verified that on Miss Rand's behalf she secured Rand's Social Security and Medicare payments which Ayn received under the name of Ann O'Connor (husband Frank O'Connor).
As Pryor said, "Doctors cost a lot more money than books earn and she could be totally wiped out" without the aid of these two government programs. Ayn took the bail out even though Ayn "despised government interference and felt that people should and could live independently... She didn't feel that an individual should take help."
But alas she did and said it was wrong for everyone else to do so.
I like the part under the 'serial-killer fangirl' link. Her concept of a real man is great.
Bitch all you want, taxation is still taking my money by physical force against my will. Any socialistic tendencies are first and foremost an immoral attack on the individual. You are saying that I do not have a right to my own life. You want me to agree to give my means of life, but I don't want to. So to have it, you must vote with the rest of the mob and take it by force. You are saying that my life partly belongs to you. Disgusting.
Democracy that allows for wealth redistribution is, yes, absolutely mob rule. The majority voting away my personal individual and property rights is wrong.
To be a part of society you must follow the rules. That's why I pay taxes. I'm just saying, it's immoral and weak to feed off other people's shit to live. If you wanted to live in some god-king like society back in the day, you couldn't look the pharaoh in the eye. It's not right, but I wouldn't do it. I'd follow the rules so I wouldn't be killed or turned into a slave.
