Do you agree with Rand Paul's position on ADA,Civil Rights,role of gov?
You know that one part, in that one sports movie, where the black teammate/team is on the road before/after the big game and the owners of the restaurant/hotel they stop at refuses service to "them negroes."
Yeah, Rand Paul thinks that's just dandy. He figures inside a business is sacred ground, and the government shouldn't be able to change how people act within their own stores.
