EPJ: Rand Paul Wants Don't Ask Don't Tell for Tax ReturnsSubmitted by Neotheone on Wed, 03/13/2013 - 11:13
Here is just another example of Rand as a technocrat for the state, rather than a true small government person. It also displays his role in diluting the libertarian message and linking it with the state.
The focus should never be on how this group or that group is treated on tax forms. That is a statist question that assumes a tax role for the state. It is as far from a libertarian position as you can get. By Rand mixing the tax question, with his position on gays, he again seems to be doing what he does best, never, ever talking about eliminating the state role, but simply redefining how the state can coerce---and doing it with clever language and proposals that appear to be libertarian.
