Ayn Rand wasn't just an athiest

She was also an Illegal Immigrant. Reason Magazine shows how Ayn, fearing certain death for her views in Soviet Russia under Lenin, overstayed a tourist visa while staying with relatives in Chicago, and even had a "marriage of convience" with her actor husband, just as her extension on her visa was about to run out (to her credit, she stuck with him for 50 years until his death in 1979). She was also pro-choice, which makes her a very suspect philosopher for any Republican trying to be conservative.
