Rand Paul Was Right; Liberals Say So — Bryan Fischer

Rand Paul argues that the constitutional principle of freedom of association allows private individuals and businesses to decide with whom they will associate, and that it is not the business of government to tell them with whom they must fraternize. That's not racism. Protecting the right of association is what allows churches to restrict membership to believers, the Boy Scouts to hire only heterosexual Scoutmasters, atheist clubs to exclude Bible thumpers, and homosexual student clubs on college campuses to be comprised of, well, homosexual students. -- Bryan Fischer

The Government As Identity Thieves — Ron Paul

If someone incurred debts against you as an individual, without your knowledge or consent, you would call it identity theft. You would call your bank for a full accounting of the debts incurred in your name, and after some verification, those debts would be declared invalid and you would not be held responsible for them. Furthermore, if the culprit was found, they would be prosecuted and sent to jail. Not so with governments and central banks. - Ron Paul

It will be difficult for families to come up with extra money to pay for alternate healthcare of their choice when their budget has been squeezed by this mandate to buy insurance. -- Ron Paul
