Rachel Maddow sums up the problem with Republican candidate Rand Paul’s rejection of a portion of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Paul told Rachel Maddow he only opposes 1/10th of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He believes government cannot discriminate, that would be wrong. But private businesses should be able to. So, if private business would rather not make their services available to the disabled or black people…that should be their right. Even though Paul says he believes that’s wrong and he would never do that, enthusiastically he supports enabling racists to do their worst because the rights of property owners trumps the rights of individual citizens to access services. That’s his brand of libertarianism.
Paul also just happens to believe in shrinking government entities down to mostly nothing…so those that ever have to depend on government have nothing. Kinda like turning government into Bush’s FEMA during Katrina…but for all of America.
So, Atlas doesn’t just shrug; he eats the poor, the sick, and whoever is deemed undesirable. Then picks his teeth with their bones. The bones are then sold to the For-Profit Recycling Center and converted to doggy treats.
