Ron Paul’s respectable second-place finishes in Virginia (where he had his highest percentage of the vote to date), Vermont, and North Dakota are indicative of a longer-term rise in appreciation for liberty. Mr. Stolyarov explains that if Ron Paul’s supporters can achieve a brokered Republican National convention, then Ron Paul’s influence on this election cycle will be great indeed.

Ron Paul’s Second-Place Finishes
* Virginia – 107,471 votes – 40.4%
* North Dakota – 3,187 votes – 28.1%
* Vermont – 14,408 votes – 25.5%

Mr. Stolyarov directly responds to Ayn Rand’s statements regarding the morality of war and refutes her point by point. Mr. Stolyarov shows that war, because of the deaths of innocent civilians, is thoroughly anti-individualistic, and Ayn Rand’s position on war is inconsistent with the fundamental ethical principles of her philosophy of Objectivism.

What is the cause of recent steep increases in the price of gasoline? Mr. Stolyarov explains that, undoubtedly, the recent sanctions on Iran, imposed by the United States federal government, are the cause of this deprivation of the American people.
