Rand Paul Defends Civil Rights
In a heated debate with a colleague of mine about civil rights, I was struck
with all the force of a city bus when my views on civil rights somehow labeled
me a racist.Wealth Daily-Rand Paul Defends Civil Rights Freedom-watch

You see, following Rand Paul's speech at Howard University this week, media
coverage was as expected: Fake conservative media ignored it, liberal media
attacked Paul's speech like a group of rabid honey badgers, and independent
media had the audacity to present more than just sound bites, criticisms, and
overzealous praise by doing something completely outrageous — that is, providing
objective coverage.

The latter is where I tend to get most of my news.

My colleague, however, is a fully admitted slave to to the plastic faces on
mainstream “news” shows that spit out lies and misinformation like the good
robots they are.

In any event, I was labeled a racist because I found Paul's speech to be one
of the few truly honorable ones delivered at Howard University, compared to
other lawmakers who have also stood before the students of Howard in the
past.

How so?

It wasn't delivered behind the backdrop of liberal white guilt, fake nervous
smiles, and the visible fear of offending anyone.

Sure, it wasn't the most heartfelt speech I've ever heard. And clearly there
was an agenda to make the republican case. But unlike other politicians I've
watched speak at Howard, it definitely didn't carry that patronizing tone we've
heard so many times before.

And that's what makes all the difference.

Ending Oppression


Despite my lack of criticisms of Senator Paul's speech, there were plenty out
there who attempted to paint Paul as a racist because he had the courage to open
up the dialogue on civil rights in a rational and honest way.

You know, it's really easy to sit behind a camera and talk about the importance of civil rights and
all the accomplishments the civil rights movement facilitated for minorities.
But it takes a certain level of fortitude to be honest about where we are today
on this issue.

Did the civil rights movement of the 1960s help lay the groundwork for
opportunity and freedom for those who weren't allowed to enjoy it? Absolutely.
Have dozens of laws and regulations been able to end the oppression of
minorities? Not at all.

A Nation of Slaves

Although slavery was outlawed in 1865, there are plenty of folks these days
(and not just minorities) who are still enslaved.

You see, there are three was to enslave communities: Keep them poor, keep
them uneducated, and keep them unable to protect themselves.

My friends, this is exactly what our
government does.


While plenty of politicians will boast about helping minority communities and
providing financial
help for those who need it, most are just exacerbating the
problem.

If they truly wanted to embrace civil rights, they would spend less time
chasing the effects of failed policies and more time focusing on the root of the
problem — which is clearly the absence of opportunity.

Poor, Uneducated, and Defenseless

Today's lack of a real free
market coupled with overzealous bureaucrats determined to further regulate
our ability to pursue life, liberty, and property accomplishes the goal of
keeping many folks poor, uneducated, and defenseless.

If you support civil rights for all Americans, then its imperative that we
enable opportunity for all Americans.

And the best way to do that is to encourage wealth creation, education, and
self-reliance.

You want to lift folks out of poverty? Encourage business development by
limiting harmful and superfluous regulations that, these days, seem nearly
synonymous with the tributes once paid by local store owners to mafia
bosses.

You want to educate people? This is a tough one, as education really does
start in the home. And the majority of American children living in poverty
(regardless of race) are the ones who are not properly educated before heading
off to school. I would argue that even if you had a superior school, public or
private, available to these kids, if education isn't a priority at home, it
won't be in the classroom.

Moreover, if those kids don't respect their parents, they won't respect their
teachers. And that opens up another can of worms that makes things even more
difficult.

Although I'm very much in favor of supporting more privatization and a
complete restructuring or possibly gutting of the public school system as we
know it today (including the Department of Education), it would be detrimental
to the health of our nation if a system wasn't in place beforehand that would
see to it that the most vulnerable were not denied an education and the chance
to rise up and become financially independent as adults.

As Frederick Douglas once said, “Knowledge makes a man unfit to be a
slave.”

If you want to make sure folks can defend themselves, they must have access
to firearms. That's not to say they should be required to own them; but if
needed to protect their families from those seeking to do them harm, there
should be no restraints on their ability to do so.

As I wrote last week, we simply can't make it more difficult for those on
limited incomes in poorer, more violent neighborhoods to protect themselves, as
these folks are at a much higher risk of victimization.

Bottom line: You will find more solutions to civil rights problems by
encouraging free market solutions, supporting and defending the Constitution,
and opening up a real, honest dialogue with those who are disproportionately
victimized by a system that tends to praise the glory days of the civil rights
movement, but actually promotes an agenda of restrained liberty — which, of
course, erodes civil rights instead of strengthening them.

Live honorably live free...

Personally I like Rand. I liked a lot of of what his father said as well, but personally felt that some of Ron's ideas were a little off, even dangerous. Just my opinion, but still .... I hope that Rand does well, he deserves a place of influence.
