“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists..it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.”?Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

An odd collaboration between Ayn Rand disciples and Christian rightists, based on a mutual attraction for aggressive free enterprise, is on the upswing. The relationship seems to signal further cohesion and ideological extremism on the Tea Party right.

Mr. Tucker, 43, was once a practicing architect, but when the financial crisis hit and his business dried up, he became the Howard Roark of Legos. Now he builds scale models of world-famous skyscrapers and creates structures for corporate clients like Snap-on Tools and eBay. … Correction: January 8, 2015
