Although Ayn Rand is dead, her philosophies and narrow understanding of life are promoted today by organizations that target the youth of America.
Taking lessons from the Nazi party, the Ayn Rand Institute and Objective Academic Center, both mass media organizations that spread Ayn Rand's ideas, attempt to plant the seed of societal discontent into the malleable minds of children. Their intention is to create an army of brain-washed individuals who will give credence to Ayn Rand's teachings and may one day influence American society to accept and conform to Ayn Rand's teachings.
We saw an example of how effective this method is when Congressman Paul Ryan, who himself was introduced to Ayn Rand's philosophy as a child, mentioned her teachings as the guidance he used to

Republicans had the opportunity to introduce this food stamp bill because they separated it from the Farm Bill, which has historically been paired with the food stamp program. The farm part of the farm bill was passed and offered $80 billion in government subsidies and insurance protections to wealthy farmers. The food stamp program was separated from the farm bill because Republicans were not satisfied with the $4 billion in food stamp cuts the Democrats offered.
Republicans only publicly admitted reason they needed this huge cut was to eliminate fraud from the
It has been estimated that there may be about $750 million or 1% of operating costs in food stamp fraud each year. So why would Republicans want to cut $4 billion a year out of the program? Because the poor do not vote Republican. Why would Republicans continue to give wealthy corporate farmers government assistance when they take it away from the really needy? My guess is because Ayn Rand taught them that people are only as valuable and deserving as they are rich.
It is remarkable how closely Republican actions mimic the teaching of Ayn Rand. From hating government to hating the poor, it appears that the Hitler youth of the Ayn Rand generation have grown up and infiltrated American government. Ayn Rand's socially unjust philosophies hide beneath the idea of capitalism. She is advocating anti-Christian and hateful actions by giving permission and excuses for them if you believe in capitalism.
While there is nothing wrong with capitalism as an economic policy, there is certainly something wrong when you partner it with hate, lack of compassion, unjust rewards and unjust punishments. That is what is wrong with Ayn Rand's teachings and appears to also be what is wrong with Republicanism today.
It is unlikely that this SNAP bill will be approved by the Senate since Democrats are in the majority there, but once again it gives evidence of the true nature of Republicans in Congress. Hopefully you are beginning to see the sense of voting these demons out of office.
