Fresh from his GOP primary victory in Kentucky’s Senate race, Rand Paul caused a stir when he declined to say that he would have voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act. On an array of issues, it’s like libertarian father (Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas), like son. The question is whether the younger Paul’s fans will embrace the whole of the candidate, whose past statements include:
– “I think it’s a bad business decision to exclude anybody from your restaurant — but, at the same time, I do believe in private ownership.”
– “Our national security is not threatened by Iran having one nuclear weapon.”
– “I am against any federal funding or control of education.”
