Who is John Galt?

Notice that there seems to be a swelling anger at the Most Merciful, Lord High Barack Obama?

Many seem to be saying: "I work hard. Pay my taxes. Pay my bills. Live within my means. And those who don't are going to get rewarded? What is going on here!"

The Most Mericful, Lord High Barack Obama has been president barely one month and already there is a groundswelling of anger and outrage about his socialistic policies.

I am just wondering when the USCCB and/or Maryland Catholic Conference (MCC) will come out swinging for these policies.

Super high approval ratings and public opinion of the GOP has not risen out of the gutter. Be prepared for a long, dry spell for the conservatives. Probably will lose seats in Congress once again in 2010.

At the pace he is going, there will not BE a Congress in 2010...

Do not take such a passive role, join your Republican party, fight for conservative candidates, do not give in to despair. See this as THE OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE REAL CHANGE IN YOUR COMMUNITY. PEOPLE ARE UPSET, THEY DO NOT WANT TO SEE THEIR COUNTRY TURNED IT A MASSIVE WELFARE STATE.Remeber-the worst thing is when good people do nothing....

I always find it fascinating when Catholics are drawn to Ayn Rand. Ms. Rand's gospel of individualism is, erm, DIRECTLY contrary to the real Gospels.

Anonymous, I would urge you to "remeber" the preferential option for the poor and acknowledge that the gap between the rich and poor has grown dramatically over the past 20 years. Being a Catholic means more than going to Mass on Sunday and voting Pro Life.

I don't know if you have read my blog over the last year or so, but part of my being an individual is my responsibility to support those who are less fortunate than myself. Whether I give $$$ to a soup kitchen or volunteer at a place which helps the disabled, government should help only up to a point...it is our responsibility to do more for those who cannot do for themselves.

I have not read all of your posts, just stumbled upon the blog while looking up Mass times in the District for Ash Wednesday and I was not trying to personally attack you (though, to be candid, I was personally attacking the anonymous poster).

I would respectfully disagree with the notion that you can reconcile the narratives in Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead with Matt. 19:16-26 without some seriously convoluted logic, but, hey, prove me wrong (and I love Ayn Rand's writing btw).

I guess I felt compelled to write, too, because I have such a problem with the "voting for a Democrat who is pro abortion" is a sin crowd. It's so far afield from the mission of Christ and a waste of resources -- the ads on the subway you posted are, in my opinion, so much more effective, as well as the programs trying to counsel young mothers-to-be.

How come, in the spirit of Pope JPII's beautiful Evangelium vitae (ch. III), am I not told to not vote for anyone who supports the death penalty?

I'm in agreement with A Concerned Southern Catholic, Ayn Rand's soci-economic philosophy doesn't square with Sacred Scripture and Catholic social teaching which follows the Gospel. [Though I'm not fond of Rand's writing...she's a lack luster Nietsche if you ask me].
I also don't understand why Christians fear socialism. Acts 2:42-47 sounds like socialism to me!
