When Ronald Reagan reduced the role of the federal government to a campaign trail punchline, he could not have framed a libertarian take over of the Republican party any better.
Thirty years later, the Republican Party has nominated a libertarian ideologue named Rand Paul for Senate. In this clip, Paul goes on the Rachel Maddow Show and Rachel gives us a crystal clear look at how this whole libertarian business works. Paul takes a very moral position on racism. Unfortunately, his own morality is irrelevant because libertarianism operates on naked principle, which is this: anything goes in private places. Oh, by the way, as a libertarian he also believes there shouldn't be any public places. So, laws like the Civil Rights Act moot.
