Yet another reason why I will not support this LINO.
“Rand Paul of Kentucky, who describes himself as a libertarian”
Subtext: because he sure as hell ain’t one.
HAHA and the flag of israel to his right is even more revealing
glad people are finally understanding this bozo to be who he is.
It’s actually not that hard to understand. One can love anyone, regardless of what their genitals look like.
But no one should be forced to recognize that relationship by law. Ensuring that marriage is a state level rather than a federal issue is a Constitutional position. Because all civil marriage licenses were implemented on a state by state basis, they should be repealed on a state by state basis (as such, this issue is irrelevant to Rand and any Federal office he holds). You should be applauding him for wanting to keep the Feds out of marriage. We are not advancing the Constitution by getting the Feds involved in our beds.
The Rand haters are grasping at straws on this issue.
I disagree. If a state has the right to control who can marry who, they should not be able to discriminate by sex.
The problem, as I have said many times, is marriage is simply a contract between two consenting adults. Since the State is the only arbiter of contracts currently (no polycentric legal system) they should not discriminate based on any gender. The state would not invalidate a business contract between two men or two women, and that’s pretty much the essence of what marriage is two individuals wanting to enter into contract to help each other out for life(or until divorce). Everything else around it is whatever you want it to be and whatever it means to you and your partner.
