"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
-Samuel Adams

I just realized several things all at once...

1. Atlas Shrugged has been made into a movie, and I cannot wait to see it.
2. It comes out - no doubt intentionally - on April 15th.
3. By sheer serendipity, there is a very good chance that the federal government will be CLOSED at the time of the release, because of the same unsustainable levels of government taxation and regulation that the story is about.
