[Q:] I always understood you as being an Ayn Rand aficionado. But you distanced yourself from her writing during the campaign. What’s your real view of her?

It is true that Ryan is not and never has been an objectivist. Very few Ayn Rand devotees are objectivists. Objectivism is the totalistic philosophy created by Rand and disseminated by the cult that grew around her.
