Smaller Government???? I do not like mandatory laws no matter who they come from. I think that if a kid wants to read that book then ensure it is on the Summer list or reading list and let them choose.
This is not an issue of smaller government versus bigger government...and for the record, we already have mandatory reading lists...its called SCHOOL CURRICULUM - this is just a suggestion to add Atlas Shrugged to that list. No expansion of anything.
I’d settle for “A History of the American People” by Paul Johnson, instead the Howoard Zinn crap.
