YouTube - (Most of) The Left gets Rand Paul quote wrong (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaelIldb4cY)

I linked this video with a good defense of Rand at the end. Even though I just violated what I'm about to write!... I think it is time for us to stop stewing about this issue...I just think this clip might be helpful for a few novices (liberals) out there.

If the left got it wrong then does that mean Fox got it right?

Not necessarily. That's what's known in Logic class as a converse error. (e.g., The Right gets it wrong too.)

The ENTIRE reason limits of government power was ever raised in the context of the CRA (and that act was never ONCE raised by Rand, who wasn't even thinking about it) was to race bait.

Yea, I know that.
The problem with Americans is that they don't know about logic, or that specific falacy.
