Rand Paul and civil rights

Much is being made of the fact that Rand Paul's position on civil rights laws prioritizes property rights over civil rights. This is a well-known feature of the Libertarian Party platform, and the American variant on libertarianism in general. That this was drawn out of Dr. Paul by a blogger rather than a journalist comes as no surprise. With the main$tream media, zero exposure for third party movements is obviously an editorial policy. More troubling is that even the progressive media are discussing the public accommodations aspects of Dr. Paul's troubling priorities, rather than the much higher stakes issue of employment non-discrimination. The consumer marketplace is considerably easier to negotiate than the job market, the customer always being right, and all.
