For nearly 80 years our country let the Free Market decide whether black people were human beings or property. The Free Market chose wrongly, and it took a brutal war to correct that wrong. For another 100 years, we let the Free Market decide whether to treat black people as equals, rather than subhumans. The Free Market again chose wrongly, for an entire century. Unregulated Free Markets are every bit as oppressive as Soviet Communism, and they proved to be so even before the Soviet Union existed.
Rand Paul claims he believes that the government should provide services to everyone equally, but not private business. Ask Rand Paul what services should be provided by the city and which should be left to segregationist businesses (Police? Fire? Busing?).
