If you were a convention delegate in 1778, would you have voted to ratify the Constitution of the United States?
If the answer is yes — and you don’t hate America, do you?! — it’s only fair we conclude that you support restricting voting rights to male landowners exclusively. Surely, from your position we can also deduce that you support slavery.
Now, if the answer is nay on ratification, we will take this to mean that you oppose a document that provided the infrastructure for more long-term liberty and prosperity — for all races — than any other in history.
Creating racists is really no problem at all.
Ask Rand Paul…
The fact is, nearly everyone — including, it seems, most libertarians and Paul himself — agree that the Civil Rights Act was necessary in untangling repressive, government-codified Southern racism.
The problem is that some of this kind of well-intentioned and important legislation has been used to validate the infinite creep of Washington intrusion into commerce and life.
