Many time before I have been asked on this message board to explain Ron Paul's stance on how he could possibly be against the civil rights movement and how that would lead to restaurants for whites and restaurants for others, etc... Last night, laying in bed watching Seinfeld, I saw the perfect clip to explain his position. Seinfeld On Abortion - YouTube You see Ron Paul claims that with the amendment, you didn't get rid of racism, you simply made people hide their ism whatever that may be. As you see in the above clip there was a restaurant full of people willing to hand the owner hundreds of dollars to enjoy his services, all while not knowing that he supports a view point that is completely opposite of their own. What this achieves is not equality or fairness, what this does is hides the fact that when you enjoy the services of a restaurants owner who is racist, you support his causes, becuase they take those profits to support their view points. In the modern movement, imagine a restaurant owner who despises Gay people. The government tells him them they must allow Gay people in their place of business, so they do, they accept in total 10,000 in net sales from homosexuals over the course of a month, they then take that profit and donate to legislators to ensure that Gay marriage remains illegal. In the end, the gay couple enjoy the supposed "right" to eat at an establishment which privately despises them, they hand their money over in exchange for services which results in more support for anti gay propaganda... Wouldn't it have been easier if the owner could just state his views on a Door? And then the consumer has all the information and power to decide, "Do I want to support this establishment which doesn't allow Gay to easy here" Sure some people would be attracted to that idea, many would shun the business all together, and the most likely result is that business would be at such a competitive disadvantage that they would not be able to compete with other restaurants near by who do not openly discriminate.
