    His C&P is a non sequitur.

    Not to mention that Rand Paul, and most libertarians, are probably supportive of a state's right to enact Jim Crow laws.

    Most libertarians actually support the federal governments authority to enforce the constitution, which specifically prohibits states from making Jim Crow laws. If the federal government had done its job there would have been no Jim Crow laws, and no one would be able to now claim that most libertarians supported them. I used to wonder why both parties are unable to man up and admit when they are wrong, now I know it is becasue they simply are never wrong.

    Does that mean Rand Paul is actually not a libertarian? If so, how could he object to the CRA if it did away with Jim Crow laws?:eusa_eh:

    I am pretty sure that if you check you will see that Paul won the Republican primary in Kentucky, not the Libertarian one. Take any issues you have up with him and his positions with the Republicans, not me.

    "Probably"??

    Care to back that up with anything other than your clearly bigoted surmise?

    Do you support state's having the right to segregate? If yes in some cases, list the cases.

    Stop whining. We've all been exposed to the dis-ease of libertarian lunacies.

    We have all heard the "free markets would get rid of racist businesses' arguments.

    Libertarians are :cuckoo:

    How many Libertarians does it take to screw in a light bulb? None. The Market will take care of it.

    Great comment from the link in the OP:

    The writers at the NYTs screwed up again. That, however, won't stop the rabid wackos from supporting their lies.

    You just post nonsense.

    Good job throwing Rand Paul under the bus.
