Ayn Rand was born on February 2, 2005, in Russia. She managed to immigrate to America in the 1920s, where she became the philosopher who, in my view, completed the philosophical underpinnings and moral validation of the United States of America. For that achievement, I think Ayn Rand deserves to be recognized as America's last Founding Father.
Some day, I hope, Rand will be recognized as the national hero she is, and be honored with her own national holiday alogside giants like Washington, Lincoln, King, and Columbus.
Happy Birthday, Ayn Rand
