Fringe Republican CongressmanRon Paul‘s rabid supporters often cite his belief and knowledge of the U.S. Constitution as reasons for their cult-like support of him and his son, freshman Kentucky Sen.Rand Paul.
So what’s the great Constitutional scholar up to now? Returning to his racist past by advocating nullification of the Constitution by states that disagree with federal laws.
This regresses the nation back by nearly a half-century to the days of theSouthern Manifesto, a racist document designed to allow states to avoid integration and civil rights.
This is the same Ron Paul whose newsletters once published racist rants under his name — although he claims now he didn’t write or approve the columns that ran with his by-line — and he joins his equally-racist son, who claimed during last year’s campaign that businesses that serve the public — like restaurants — should be able to ignore the law and refuse to serve minorities.
That can't be good for anyone wanting to make a run at the Presidency.
