Evolution of a Revolution

Does it get any better than back-to-back Intellectual Froglegs? Joe Dan Gorman deserves his own TV show. But as long as he’s not on your TV sets, we’ll make sure he has as large a platform as possible for his videos. No one else better expresses  the sentiments of “Deplorables” across America. We are ready to significantly trim and reshape the bloated federal government. And how about the arrogant media that so widely projected an easy victory for Hillary Clinton in 2016? As Joe Dan reminds viewers, quoting from Ayn Rand: “You can ignore reality but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”

Abolish the IRS

Yaron Brook, president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, calls for the abolition of the IRS, saying the agency’s targeting of Tea Party groups because of their political views demonstrates that the IRS has become too powerful and corrupt to remain intact. Failure to reign in this rogue agency will lead to an erosion of our civil liberties and freedom of speech.

“Although I’m hopeful about the individual, I’m very fearful about the direction that, politically, this country is going,” says Capitalist Pig Hedge Fund Manager Jonathan Hoenig. He sat down with Reason.TV’s Tracy Oppenheimer to discuss why hedge funds are a boon for the economy even though they get a bum rap, and why he thinks Ayn Rand’s ideas are crucial for a cultural and economic upswing.

SALUTE TO AYN RAND

Ayn Rand’s famous TV appearance on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson surfaced earlier this summer, and now a second vintage Rand interview has been published for the first time on YouTube. In this March 1974 interview with James Day, host of the PBS show Day at Night, Rand discusses:

  • Her views on the ideal man.
  • Concepts of charity, sacrifice, romantic love and selfishness.
  • Why she finds all religions false.
  • How her upbringing in Russia, as well as her time in Hollywood, influenced her thinking and her writing.

Paul Ryan for VP

Mitt Romney named US Rep Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as his vice presidential running mate Saturday morning in Norfolk, Va. The announcement was made in front of the USS Wisconsin, with Romney vowing to present solutions to the nation’s economic woes “that are bold, specific and achievable.” He further pledged, “We offer our commitment to create 12 million new jobs and bring better take home pay to middle class families.”

Ryan, 42, serves as chairman of the House Budget Committee and has been identified with efforts to rein in federal spending and control entitlement costs. He is a conservative, pro-life, Irish-German Catholic from Janesville, Wis. He and his wife, Janna, have three children — Elizabeth, Charles and Samuel. He once said, “The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand.”

Earlier this year, Ryan outlined how the Republicans could win back the White House in 2012, while delivering the keynote address at the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s Tax Policies for 4% Growth conference at the New York Historical Society.
