Big difference between socialism and civil rights my friend. Not even the same discussion.

Welcome to the wide world of opportunity costs!

Here's my remark again in full............Sooooo, let's go back to the way things were in the 1940s before civil rights came into law? No thanks, I'll take government intervention and regulation everytime. Right is right.

I don't believe society would go back to pre '40s levels when it comes to discrimination.
Society has evolved, I believe.

I don't understand what you mean... Do you think that Rand Paul thinks that removing "civil rights" would be like a time machine and there would be two waterfountains and african americans riding in the back of busses?? I seriously doubt it. I don't think Rand thinks that either.
Also, this is about Ron Paul and Rand is new enough to where I don't know a tremendous amount about him....

Well said. It's absolutely preposterous to think that because of one silly photo that he wants to divert back to the old times. It's what I'd call "a scare tactic".
