Rand Paul: ‘I’ve never wavered’ in support for Civil Rights Act

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday in speech at a historically black college in Washington that he has never wavered in his support of the 1964 Civil Rights Act — an issue that cropped up in his 2010 Senate campaign and could be one again if he runs for president in 2016.

During that 2010 campaign, Paul suggested that private businesses should not be forced to abide by the Civil Rights Act. He quickly clarified that he supported the act and would not want its repeal.

“No Republican questions or disputes civil rights,” Paul said Wednesday. “I’ve never wavered in my support for civil rights or the Civil Rights Act.”

That was such a beautifully defended situation. Some of the smartest people at that school saw how beneficial and powerful the REAL Tea Party message is. He is continuing what Ron did, but with a MUCH MUCH wider spectrum of people. The message is reaching more than just those who were already somewhat interested in Liberty.

Ron brought the Liberty movement together, Rand is expanding the crap out of it! :)
