Having dabbled in Libertarian circles I have found many that idolize Rand.  So in short they share a lot in common.

 

Interestingly enough though, many of the Libertarians I run into are entrenched prolife Christians.  I find this is contradiction to the rest of their freedom of choice and self reliance political stances.  Rand on the other hand was an atheist and pro-choice.  I have found many of Rand's comments on religion insightful & thought provoking.  I have found Rand's fiction to be just that.  Not completely applicable to the real world, but none the less interesting and relevant.  I agree that reading The Fountainhead is a good starting point.
