Ayn Rand Opposed Ronald Reagan Because He Was Anti-Choice

Oh Sweet Tap Dancing Jesus.

Hat tip to DangerousMinds.Net:

“I urge you, as emphatically as I can, not to support the candidacy of Ronald Reagan. I urge you not to work for or advocate his nomination, and not to vote for him. My reasons are as follows: Mr. Reagan is not a champion of capitalism, but a conservative in the worst sense of that word—i.e., an advocate of a mixed economy with government controls slanted in favor of business rather than labor (which, philosophically, is as untenable a position as one could choose—see Fred Kinnan in Atlas Shrugged, pp. 541-2). This description applies in various degrees to most Republican politicians, but most of them preserve some respect for the rights of the individual. Mr. Reagan does not: he opposes the right to abortion.”
Ayn Rand, November, 1975

    >I read about this over at Dangerous Minds yesterday.What's a good conservative capitalist to do, huh?Capitalism and Christianity are not compatible. True capitalism and crony corporatism aren't compatible, either.For all her philosophical faults, at least Ayn Rand was being consistent…
