Last time I checked, those dinosaurs are still running the GOP, so this is all hypothetical at best. Things might be changing, but not nearly to the extent that you may think they are. The statists still control the school system, and most of the people who are home-schooling are the same religious people who don't support gay marriage.
Furthermore, I'm not cutting Rand Paul slack because he's playing ball, I'm openly applauding him for playing ball precisely because that is how short-term victories will be obtained. Ron Paul lost because the country wasn't ready for his message, and it still isn't ready for it, nor will it be for the next 10 or 20 years despite my own hopes that it would have been ready in 2012. If you doubt me on this, ask yourself why gay marriage is a trump card that can automatically undo what Rand has done on the civil liberties side of things.
I don't mean to be a jerk, but gay people aren't the only people living in America. Think about it.
