“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

When reality mirrors fiction

I've been saying this for several years now. Ayn Rand absolutely nailed liberalism and it's modern believers when she wrote Atlas Shrugged, and it's coming to pass as Obama and treacherous, far-left democrats Reid and Pelosi seize control of parts of American life we never thought possible. Here's the Executive Direcgtor from the Rand Center commenting on why sales of Atlas have skyrocketed since The One took over....

Washington, D.C., February 23, 2009--Sales of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” have almost tripled over the first seven weeks of this year compared with sales for the same period in 2008. This continues a strong trend after bookstore sales reached an all-time annual high in 2008 of about 200,000 copies sold.

“Americans are flocking to buy and read ‘Atlas Shrugged’ because there are uncanny similarities between the plot-line of the book and the events of our day” said Yaron Brook, Executive Director at the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights. “Americans are rightfully concerned about the economic crisis and government’s increasing intervention and attempts to control the economy. Ayn Rand understood and identified the deeper causes of the crisis we’re facing, and she offered, in ‘Atlas Shrugged,’ a principled and practical solution consistent with American values."

If you are conservative or even think you might be, and you've never read it, you must read Atlas Shrugged immediately. Other than the Bible, this is the most important book written for our time.
