I was rereading one of the old Ron Paul threads back from 2011, you said "The whole Civil Rights Act was evil."
Why, in this case?
I haven't read the whole thing, but I do know of two things that those acts did, one was to restrict freedom of association, which we both disagree with, the other was to destroy the Jim Crow laws.
Of course, you were right that those laws would have been ended at grassroots level without Federal intervention, but it would have taken longer. Was there any good reason to let them continue in that case?
I wouldn't have even voted for the law, because of the freedom of association part, but if all they had done was to repeal Jim Crow, what would possibly have been wrong with that?
