Opps... Rand Paul Takes Another Ride On The Loony Train

"So many times, Republicans are seen as this party of, 'We don’t want black people to vote because they’re voting Democrat, we don’t want Hispanic people to vote because they’re voting Democrat,'" he said. "We wonder why the Republican Party is so small. Why don’t we be the party that's for people voting, for voting rights?"
