Instead of being a protector of man’s rights, the government is becoming their most dangerous violator; instead of guarding freedom, the government is establishing slavery; instead of protecting men from the initiators of physical force, the government is initiating physical force and coercion in any manner and issue it pleases; ......blah blah blah blah blah...."

OH POLLLEEAASSSEEE!!Spare us the sanctimony! Those poor corporate executives, what with earning 3000 times what the average worker earns, having their doors kicked down and being dragged off in the middle of the night by government jackboots! The poor babies, being foisted into slavery while they pay an effective tax rate of 15% or less, why it's just like slavery! In fact I just saw an CEO in an Armani suit picking cotton in a field!

How many times have you seen the government use physical force against someone, particularly for economic reasons? You people live in a fantasy world. Ayn Rand's heros have raped and plundered this country into near ruin and you still see them as the victims.
