Despite the fact that the bill mentions a separate fund. All profit from this fund is sent to the Treasury.

But didn't bother to repeat his argument those times about unconstitutional spending as he had with the Rosa Parks Medal.
Introduced legislation, twice, that would allow schools to re-segregate,
Introduced "A bill to provide that the Internal Revenue Service may not implement certain proposed rules relating to the determination of whether private schools have discriminatory policies."
His SuperPAC is headed by Thomas Woods, the founder of the League of the South, of which the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) labeled a "racist hate group."
Also in association with the League via Woods is the Mises Institute, of which Lew Rockwell is an Administrator...
Is against Hate Crime laws,
Would have voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964,
He also believes The Civil Rights Act destroyed Privacy,
Despite always "voting against earmarks," he was only 1 of 4 House Repubs to request earmarks in 2011 for over $157mil. (And in FY 2010, was one of the leading House members in requests for a total of $398mil.)
And during his entire tenure, he has managed only one, out of 620, of his bills to get signed into law.
Ron Paul is not a constitutionalist or a civil libertarian. He's a secessionist, a fundamentalist and a confederate.

"If liberals want to embrace Ron Paul due to his support for “non-interventionism,” then consistency requires that they embrace Pat Buchanan too."
Ron Paul's False Founding Narrative
"When Ron Paul claims that Lincoln "shouldn't have gone to war," he is deploying a convenient and erroneous frame which necessarily holds that the inciting aggression was not in raising an Army, seizing federal property and arms, urging revolution among ones neighbors, and then firing on a federal fort, but in democratically electing a president with whom slave-holders disagreed."

The Dangerous Isolationism of Ron Paul
"It makes no sense for progressive pundits who have devoted their lives to defending the welfare state, progressive taxation, labor unions and the federal government’s ability to protect citizens from abuses at the state level to heap praise on Paul."
"I think that reply sums up quite well my problem with the Ron Paul crowd. They tend to have little respect for reason. They often cannot or simply will not be persuaded by logic. When the basic incompatibility of their view with factual reality is laid out before them in plain language they can only conclude that it must be the facts which are misguided rather than their own politics."
