Paul: One Of the Things Freedom Requires

Paul: One Of the Things Freedom Requires

Abby Zimet

Rand Paul, Kentucky's new Tea Party Whiz Kid, is already running into trouble because he can't quite bring himself
to say he supports the Civil Rights Act and all that tricky stuff about
treating everyone as equal under the law. On Rachel Maddow last night,
she kept asking if he thought restaurants had the right to refuse to
serve black people, and he kept saying he sure does believe in freedom
of speech. Whoa. Watch.
