I Am Reading Atlas Shrugged

I am not quite half way through it. I consumed over 100 pages of it this past weekend. Wow is all I can say. The directives, and laws, and move to socialism the book details is prophetic of what we are currently going through. Of course the government did all of this in the book for the "public good". WHOA

When compared to Obama's bank takeover, take over of auto companies, appointment of czars, and emergency powers, this book is chilling.

I have an excerpt of the book I want to put up here. A diatribe from a character that shows the hypocrisy of liberal fiscal thinking. I am a little leery of copyright infringement, so I might have to refer to it without reprinting it here. I'll look into it.

With the reading of this book fresh in my mind, this story is scary:

Click here: Gore thundered that the country has “a moral duty to pass health care reform. This year.”

Or this:

Click here: Capitalism the villian as Moore movie hits Venice

Truly frightening, in context of Atlas Shrugged, to hear this kind of language. "Moral duty"? "Capitalism is the villian"? Wow.

I fear it will take armed conflict to prevent the socialization of this the greatest nation on God's green earth.

Good book. It's surprisingly relevant today. My father just started reading it for the first time and he keeps pointing out how you could change the names of the characters and you would basically end up reading the news.
