Those Pauls sure are nuts. Ron put out a racist newsletter in his own name (and which included Christmas greetings from him) and says he never knew about it. Ron says the Civil War was unnecessary to end slavery, despite the fact that the South was building up its own army and preparing to secede. (He says we should have bought the slaves and released them! Think we could have gotten 2 for the price of 1 or some other such deal?) YouTube - Ron Paul on the American Civil War Rand, his son, says that private businesses should be allowed to discriminate. According to Rand, if you go to Macy's to buy something on sale, the store should be allowed to say to you, "Sorry, we're not going sell you the item because your skin is the wrong color." And some Republicans are pretending that Rand and Ron aren't racist? If you don't think their views are racist, then what is racism to you?
