I had a run-in with some Randians many years ago when I gave a lecture at what is now Rockford University. They didn't strike me as particularly libertarian, since they were strictly doctrinaire and utterly uninterested in any viewpoint but their own. Randianism is hardly the only brand of libertarianism out there, despite what this writer seems to think. Naturally, he brings up the Koch brothers, conveniently overlooking that they are pro-choice, support same sex marriage, and worked with the ACLU and the Obama administration on criminal justice reform.
