Lame defense

Either he caved, or he doesn't know squat. The redstate guy quietly agreed that racial discrimination in public accommodations would not have stopped if it were not for the law. But if that was the case, then why were Jim Crow laws necessary to PREVENT PEOPLE from serving blacks and whites in the same place? Store owners wanted to, but the states outlawed it.

Redstate is in the Hannity/Levin camp. When the Pauls were seen as mere irritants to the GOP elite, they were excoriated on redstate. Now that it's either Rand Paul or a Dem, the weasels flip flop. Redstate is just part of the propaganda arm of the GOP establishment.

Okay, I have some issues with his web site. I have been on the net since the mid 80's when there were only a few thousand of us. That was before the World Wide Web. Redstate.com is the first and only site ever to ban me, and it happened after I posted only six polite, non-confrontational messages that stated only facts, and said nothing disparaging about those who disagree with me. But I am not campaigning the government to force redstate to allow me to post there.

"Fully half the quotations found on the internet are either mis-attributed, or outright fabrications." - Abraham Lincoln

It's not about which amendment,

it's about the freedom to associate freely with whom we want on our own property. It's about defending the rights of the unpopular, the nonconforming, those who disagree with us, so long as they are not violating the equal rights of others.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

One of the problems here with this is

A business is either "Open" to the public or "Closed" to the public,The public is everyone.You can only legally do one or the other.You can however decide who to serve if posted, but you cannot remove them without charging them with a crime or closing the business down.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Wow. Let's hope this blows

Wow. Let's hope this blows over. This would have been terrible a few weeks before the Nov. election.

Erick is a nice enough guy...

but like Rick said "he had to be here because we're paying him"..No one else wanted to come on Sanchez's show because this is obviously a ambush over nothing...For a Cuban, Rick is sadly a devout communist/anti freedom person. Another Rick quote from the same video.."but you've got to be carful when you go out and start telling people that the government is wrong TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO..." We didn't like him in Miami either..........glad he's gone.

Rand Paul 2016

14th Amendment

Erickson said he thought Rand would support the Civil Rights Act of 1964 if it were passed under the authority of the 14th Amendment and not the Commerce Clause.

If that's true it'd be great if Rand confirmed it, allowing him to both support the constitutionality of Title II of the Act while highlighting the philosophical angle that the Federal Government needs to work within the constraints of the Constitution.

blounttruth, I believe you are getting on to what is going on w/

the RedStates, Levins, Hannitys, et al of the engineered consent, Managed Duopoly World-"Defending" Rand.

Much has been invested in creating an emotion driven, rationality/logic killing Bi-polar faux representative GOV landscape. Rand/Ron are outside the phony scam-we know that but the typical Ford/Chevy branded victim is yet to be fully aware of that or have a clue that the Ford/Chevy scam is just an elaborate control scheme.

When the typical F/C observer sees the F defending and C attacking Rand the show can continue like nothing has changed all roles are folded into their assigned box.

If that does not make any sense ask, I will be happy to explain further.

I mean to rout you out!

This is pretty amazing in and of itself

Redstate.com was the site that banned all talk or mention of Ron Paul in 2008, and defended G.W. with fervor. I was pretty surprised that they even spoke of Rand, but there may be an ulterior motive. This is a far right, Israel first, neo conservative hotbed of ignorance for years now, so I am not sure what angle they are taking in support of the non status quo Rand Paul, but just maybe the owner has awoken to the reality that the GOP will not soon produce another Ronald Regan, and is actually tired of the theft from the one party system. I seriously doubt it though, but if anyone wants to read about what a great president G.W. was, then this is the site for you.

it's pretty far out. I don't know what to make of Rand's 'defenders'.

As they say, politics makes for strange bedfellows.

Yes, and evern funnier when he could hardly find anyone to come on his show about this. That was so funny.

its not from May 22. Its a couple of days old.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Thanks, I removed the date.

I hadn't seen this video until this afternoon.
