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.
I like a lot of Libertarian ideas, but I also am a big believer that there are some jobs that the government is just plain necessary for. Helping to safeguard ideals like "all men are created equal" are among the things that government can help ensure.
Rand says he's against "institutionalized racism" but the truth is his reasoning is quite similar to what plantation owners in the south used before the Civil War.
I agree with glenn wallace -- Rand Paul's position is untenable. I've written a hub on this issue analyzing in depth if you wish to read it.
