He got nobody to blame but himself for this type of attention that he gets.
Not a single thing has stuck. Seriously, the guy has his personal opinions, some of which I disagree with, but his core philosophy is that the
government should not interfere with the personal lives of people, regardless of their physical attributes.
Ron Paul is not a racist and Ron Paul will not use federal government to restrict the rights of gays.
Even on the matter of marriage -- Ron Paul would prefer that government not be involved in marriage at all. he has stated that he views it as a 100%
private matter that should be left to the people.
On sexual harassment, as Paul has stated, there are already laws on the books regarding assult and rape. With regards to people who get sexually
harassed at work; while I think his wording was coarse, the point is simple. If you are in a hostile environment and have a way out, you should get
out. To just keep taking the harassment and then whine about it is a victim mentality. Certainly the harasser's behavior cannot be excused, but the
person being harassed should have enough dignity to not allow themselves to be a victim.
The victim culture has poisoned our society. I can say something at work that would be fine anywhere else, but some person gets offended and now I am
a sexual harasser and can be fired and even blacklisted or go to prison. Whatever happened to:
Person A: "hey, that was rude and out of line. I was seriously offended by that."
Person B: "oh, sorry.. did not mean to offend. I apologize"
No wait, that's not good enough, is it.. we have to have FEDERAL LAWS that state that Person B has to be fired and/or go to prison now.
