  3. I love when a left wing progressives tries to say they know what Republicans think. So entertaining, thank you.

  4. I feel that my numbers are in the ballpark.

    • You would Rick, too bad your way off as usual.

  5. @mcoville–> Just “Go Galt” already. Don’t you have better things to do than troll Rick’s blog?

    • I’m not ready to go Galt just yet, I still have some work to do here, so I prefer to be more of a Henry Rearden.

      Besides, I am willing to spend a few seconds of my time to remind Rick and other socialists that there are still some that the left has not brainwashed yet. I consider that time well spent.

      • Speaking of Ayn Rand, here’s something I never knew until this week:

        “Her diaries from that time, while she worked as a receptionist and an extra, lay out the Nietzschean mentality that underpins all her later writings. The newspapers were filled for months with stories about serial killer called William Hickman, who kidnapped a 12-year-old girl called Marion Parker from her junior high school, raped her, and dismembered her body, which he sent mockingly to the police in pieces. Rand wrote great stretches of praise for him, saying he represented ‘the amazing picture of a man with no regard whatsoever for all that a society holds sacred, and with a consciousness all his own. A man who really stands alone, in action and in soul. Other people do not exist for him, and he does not see why they should.’ She called him ‘a brilliant, unusual, exceptional boy,’ shimmering with ‘immense, explicit egotism.’ Rand had only one regret: ‘A strong man can eventually trample society under its feet. That boy [Hickman] was not strong enough.'”

        I wonder if Alan Greenspan heard tales of this serial killer when he was kneeling at Rand’s feet in 1953.

  6. You forgot one statistic.

    Chance that if President Obama wins that the Democratic Party will move to the right: 100%.
