Paul spoke to a friendly audience at the Bowling Green Lions Club Tuesday.
He drew chuckles when he described last week's campaign victory with the words of English novelist Charles Dickens: "It was the best of it times. It was the worst of times."
Last week Paul suggested the federal government shouldn't have the power to force restaurants to serve minorities under the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Paul told the BG Lions Club, to which he belongs, he doesn't want to repeal the Civil Rights Act.
