Who really cares what Ron Paul says anymore? I cannot believe so many are still listening to this Libertarian lunatic. Does anyone disagree with his argument? Yes, I do. The state has the right to legally enforce the proper definition of marriage upon society. There is really only one real job of government and that is to uphold morality,
It is too bad so many “Conservatives” listen to that ridiculous nonsense known as FOX News and the RNC to assist in formulating their opinion on marriage. That anyone forms an opinion based upon some garbage thrown out by the media would be laughable if they did not threaten to drag us all down into their pit of insanity and disaster. I do not address the Left-Liberals because they are completely unimportant, those people are so lost any real argument about marriage would just go right over their heads because it is all about “tolerance” and some perverted version of “love”.

Just like abortion, drugs and gay marriage, he doesnt personally like it but he wont make laws to change it, just decrease laws if anything. Ron Paul, a classy fellow as always.

Paul wants the government to control the legal rights.
He doesn't want the government controlling religious issues.
Government control civil union rights for all couples,
and then Churches marry people. Simple.
Civil unions aren't the same as marriage. Now I don't want the government to force churches to marry same sex couples, I wouldn't think that was right. But marriage is a long way from a civil union.
As in you shouldn't be able to get "Married" before a judge.
You should only be Married before God.
Then you would have to prove that God preformed your wedding ceremony. Which would mean that all typical church weddings would be null and void as God could not be proven to have presided over them.
You really believe Paul people are Blind followers?
In my opinion they are nothing short of cult members.
We actually AGREE with Ron Paul. There I said it, and I'm not lying..
I know you aren't lying, It wouldn't matter what Ron Paul said, you would agree with it. That's my point.

One of the few things Paul is wrong on. I get what he is trying to say and he is partially right about the government staying out of your personal life, but when your marriage is recognized in one state and not in another, there is a loop hole that needs some fixing.
But you gotta respect Paul's opinion either way.

What a legend
That news reporter is a real as*hole!
why does he look like he hates RP?
RP is a real down to earth gentlemen with REAL views and REAL peoples lives in mind
if i was American i would be proud to call him my president
You think I am a cult member?
Ron Paul DOES say things I don't like. It's people like you (no offence and I am being nice, don't take this wrongly) that think we agree with everything randomly.
He is just the CLOSEST to what I want. I am a Democrat, so that should tell you a lot. Everytime I comment on a Ron Paul thrad in support it is because He IS Speaking TRUTH. Not because it's just auto pilot.... I actually Like him that much, and he's actually THAT good.
Playing the 30 year congressional record card? I thought people stopped doing that already.
