    Sorry not following you. Private groups can form and be exclusive. CRA is specific to voter registration, racial segregation in schools, employment and public accommodations.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    Right. But to be clear, that's employment in companies subsidized by the government. In order to get paid, they must abode by federal laws like the CRA. But not a private company. Public accommodate is precisely what I consider a violation of the right to free association. It plays on an ambiguity in "public" between a public institution run by the government, like a post office or a national park, and public-facing or public-serving private businesses. Liberal courts long ago (ab)used that ambiguity to stretch the power of the federal government into violations of the right of the people to freely associate, which implies the right to discriminate.

    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Yes, but I reject individualism. So we arrive at the same place by different vehicles.
