I really believe that the article by Joan Walsh in the May 21, 2010 Salon, may start a different dialogue on the candidate Rand Paul. It seems that he is a stereotype poster boy for the ultra right Tea Party mentality of keeping government out of anything that has to do with private lives, private enterprise.
It follows that, according to Rand Paul, government can make rules concerning government property, protection of the citizens, dealing with other countries, military, but not private business.
This is the core belief of Rand Paul. The fact that what flows from this is the enormous potential for prejudice and discrimination in housing, the workplace, retail businesses. This is not just against black people but anyone for any reason.
No, we do not need all social outcomes to be total equality and that is what our 3 branches of government decide. But, America is better than allowing rank discrimination in the hands of a landlord, a retailer, a private university, etc. It is our moral standing that has bode us well not just in the U.S., but worldwide. The core belief of Rand Paul, would create an environment that promotes, hate, discrimination and prejudice. America does not need to revert back 60 years and beyond, it does not need a Rand Paul because it does not need defacto discrimination.
