I don't even really care about a person's religion, club affiliations or personal beliefs - just as long as that person is fair and just.
His recent comments pointing out that Blacks are victims of an 'unequal justice' seems to have gone largely ignored by most political pundits.
Paul was referring to FBI reports which point out that roughly 69% of arrests made in America were those of whites - while Blacks made up only about 28% of total arrests.
He was also referring to the fact that whites are arrested twice as many times as Blacks for drug related incidents.
Sure, in a country that is only about 16% Black these numbers seem alarming - but Paul pointed out that Blacks still represent nearly half of all those currently incarcerated.
Obama sure won't bring this up, and I can guarantee that the Republicans' Southern Strategy will not allow any insider to discuss the warts on Miss Liberty's face.
With many Americans believing that the country is falling apart and in need of a revolution (some even advocating violence) - wouldn't a shake-up from the inside be in the best interest of the country?
