Behind every free-market lovin’ conservative there lurks a socialist.

Free markets for thee but not for me:

We all know that Paul Ryan worships at the altar of Ayn Rand. We know that Ayn Rand spent years railing against collectivism and parasites who live off the state. Many are aware that Ryan collected Social Security Survivor’s benefits upon the death of his father. But do people know that when Rand was diagnosed with lung cancer, she applied for and began receiving Social Security/Medicare under her husband’s name O’Connor? (See Anne Heller’s Rand biography Ayn Rand and the World She Made.)

Surprised, anyone?

I know it’s mean to do but I recommend applying their free-market rhetoric to one of their beloved Big Government programs just to watch them squeal.
