RE: "I was following the advice of Ron Paul..."
Raul Paul advice did not stop there. The doctor urged not to separate civil liberties from economic ones. Individual rights come from private property including your body but not stopping there. Government should take part in protecting individual liberty & private property. Therefore, "equal protection" is not a right, just equal protection of your prior individual rights and reminder to the government not to be unjust.
To bypass private property issue, the left had fooled everybody including religious "right." They substituted individual rights with a subset of "civil rights" then added fake conjectures, "group rights" and "human rights." Religious, with their focus on abortions and personal sacrifice, had swallowed every drop of progressive dogma.
