Sen. Rand Paul Compares SCOTUS Decision Upholding Obamacare To Pro-Slavery Dred Scott Decision | ThinkProgress http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2012/07/05/511106/sen-rand-paul-compares-scotus-decision-upholding-obamacare-to-pro-slavery-dred-scott-decision/?mobile=wp
In the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision, can you still argue that the Constitution does not support ObamaCare? The liberal blogosphere apparently thinks the constitutional debate is over. I wonder whether they would have had that opinion the day after the Dred Scott decision. Think of how our country would look now had the Supreme Court not changed its view of what is constitutional. Think of 1857, when the court handed down the outrageous Dred Scott decision, which said African Americans were not citizens. Think of the “separate but equal” doctrine in Plessy v. Ferguson,which the court later repudiated in Brown v. Board of Education.
What was this guy smoking? Oh yeah, the Aqua Buddha. I guess being around Ron Paul in the 80’s left a certain impression on Rand about a certain type of people.
