New leader of the GOP: Rand Paul

"That's right. At least for the time being, tea party darling Sen. Rand Paul is the effective leader of the Republican Party. And that's a pretty big deal."

I didn't say you said that either, stoopid. I was adding it to fill out the picture.

Oh well, since Cosmo won't explain why it's irrelevant what he thinks about the Civil Rights Act, I'll just go ahead and point out that he's full of shit by posting Rand Paul's quote regarding the issue:

I believe we should work to end all racism in American society and staunchly defend the inherent rights of every person. I have clearly stated in prior interviews that I abhor racial discrimination and would have worked to end segregation. Even though this matter was settled when I was 2, and no serious people are seeking to revisit it except to score cheap political points, I unequivocally state that I will not support any efforts to repeal the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Let me be clear: I support the Civil Rights Act because I overwhelmingly agree with the intent of the legislation, which was to stop discrimination in the public sphere and halt the abhorrent practice of segregation and Jim Crow laws.

As I have said in previous statements, sections of the Civil Rights Act were debated on Constitutional grounds when the legislation was passed. Those issues have been settled by federal courts in the intervening years.

My opponent's statement on MSNBC Wednesday that I favor repeal of the Civil Rights Act was irresponsible and knowingly false. I hope he will correct the record and retract his claims.

The issue of civil rights is one with a tortured history in this country. We have made great strides, but there is still work to be done to ensure the great promise of Liberty is granted to all Americans.

This much is clear: The federal government has far overreached in its power grabs. Just look at the recent national healthcare schemes, which my opponent supports. The federal government, for the first time ever, is mandating that individuals purchase a product. The federal government is out of control, and those who love liberty and value individual and state's rights must stand up to it.

These attacks prove one thing for certain: the liberal establishment is desperate to keep leaders like me out of office, and we are sure to hear more wild, dishonest smears during this campaign.

I found it funny that he said this three years ago and it still applies:

He said that he thinks it is unconstitutional. That's what he said. So I guess he's in favor of what he believes to be an unconstitutional law.

This post qualifies as further proof that our public school system is failing this nation.

He said it was debated on constitutional grounds. Look, it's fairly obvious that you believed a lie about Rand just because a Democrat said it, without even bothering to check. Do you not understand that you are being a toady for a political party?

Dogma is the official system of belief or doctrine held by a religion, or a particular group or organization.[1] It serves as part of the primary basis of an ideology or belief system, and it cannot be changed or discarded without affecting the very system's paradigm, or the ideology itself. They can refer to acceptable opinions of philosophers or philosophical schools, public decrees, or issued decisions of political authorities.[2]

Yeah, not only did he believe a lie, but a quote, which cosmos is so big on correcting others for using falsely.

No, he said he wasn't in favor of it. You know that. I said he wanted it repealed, which he denied when he was hit with the backlash over his original comments. So I guess I can't claim that he stated he wanted repeal. However, considering that he said he wasn't in favor of it, that he believes it unconstitutional, it is not exactly a huge leap.

Because it's unConstitutional to him—that's why. Not because he has it in for blacks. You lefties have such a hard time with the idea of thinking an action of behavior to be socially wrong but not thinking the federal govt has authority to do. The amendment process is for that.

Eh, all he did is say he's not in favor of it and he doesn't think it is constitutional. I amend my "lie" that he said he wanted it repealed.

But a leap none the less.
