Sure enough, go to the L vs. R entrenched liberals at RawStory.com, they DON'T discuss the portion of Rand's speech that they CAN build coalitions on such as his harsh warning to neocons who take "glee" into going to wars illegally and callously, as well as Rand's testament to importance of life, and even though just like Dr. Paul's position that for him, it's about between man and a woman, he does not seek to use the Fed. Govt to dictate it, as it should Constitutionally be left to the States.
Though not sure if Rand went as far as to say that all govt should stay out of marriage altogether, as Dr. Paul the Elder has always principally contended.
These are personal individual issues that will NEVER be resolved as long as humans exist.
We all know the Ruling Class brings up these 'never-resolvables' every 2, 4, 6 years to divide and conquer.
And yet after decades of this, apparently the sheeple electorate never learned the core lesson: bread & circus over trivialities, while Rome burns.
Frankly, anthropologically speaking, marriage has never ever been about 'love' however yes, it was about stability, but not for the reasons that many believe. Marriage came about as a way to end inheritance disputes, as one may guess, men were rather promiscuously depositing seeds rather frequently. Though of course, it takes two to tango, or I suppose more than two, in some cases.
So even back in the days of yore, it began as a verbal contract. LESS dispute over heirs and inheritance? More stable the society.
And, even now, even for hetero couples, legally, technically speaking, marriage is nothing more than a contractually consensual union, with govt approval. And for the LGBT community, this only becomes an issue BECAUSE we have a welfare state where hospital visiting rights, 401K & social security become an issue. But frankly, EVERYONE of those issues, even now, can be resolved via a trust, a will, and power of attorney.
"Gay marriage" is such a NON-issue!
It's so absurdly ludicrously insane that the world is literally about to end as we know it, at Federal Reserve's current trajectory, with one more false flagged state-sponsored terrorism away from WWIII with Syria, followed by Iran, then the all too convenient declaration of Martial Law/full rollout of the NDAA policestate at home.
Yet all partisan bozos can think about is gay marriage. Frankly, the worse of the two are the liberals, as they fall for this crap and made and issue out of no issue; they could have easily gone with the more principled 'all govt should be out of the marriage business, as they're handing out marriage licenses (a govt permit for activities that are deemed illegal otherwise) for the NATURAL Right of voluntary association, in which the govt should have no delegated authority to judge one way or another on.'
Instead, the liberals literally want permission to love whomever they want, from the govt.
How F'ng insane? Frankly the State's only interest in making sure women have babies is to ensure growth of more tax slaves for its plantation. They have absolutely no interest in familial stability, as they benefit off of single parent families who are more susceptible to becoming dependent on the Welfare state.
It's such a disgusting, cynical, Machiavellian psychology. But should anyone expect anything less from centrally planning govt terrorists?
It's like we literally have more information at our fingertips than at any other time in all of recorded human history, yet people still only log onto cultivate partisan echo chamber. A truly sad state of affairs.
Seriously, if you google "ron paul, what is "trending" is not what should (ie. our "rump convention" happening in two different states, simultaneously), but Rand's 'didn't think oBUSHma "can get any gayer"' comment.
Like that's news.
"Free will" and Rhetorical & all that, I know, but really, these are the days that I truly wonder, why is the human brain even capable of entertaining such trivial nonsense?
