If Karl Marx represents the extreme left, Ayn Rand is the messiah of the extreme right-wing ideology that many believe is barbaric and evil - Objectivism. Marxism and Objectivism need to both become perjoratives that will help voters make a quick judgement on a prospective elected official. Objectivism is not an obscure notion that can easily be discarded. It is at the core of Reagan’s trickle-down economics, the economic system that has been in place for 34 years and ruined the lifestyle of the middle-class. This is serious.
