In my opinion, such ideas only lead to the increase of rifts between people, which only promotes discord and noncooperation. We need to work together, not struggle and tear ourselves apart.

    That being said, I like a lot of Ron Paul's views (accountability, non-interventionalism, no nation-building, etc.) but I'm more inclined to believe in more socialistic ideals.
    It's not ludicrous. I've known lots of people who have traveled to other states to get gay-married. Some flew, some drove and one couple rode a bus for 64 hours(round trip) because it's all they could afford. They don't have to leave their homes permanently.

    If it were only the government's power vs. the individual we would be living in a different world. It is governmental power vs. corporate power. Individuals are losing freedom and power at the hands of both. Giving the states more power actually makes it easier for corporations to take control because the same money, influence and power goes much further at that level than at the federal level. State control is not equivalent to individual freedom.

    The original plan for the U.S. was to balance the large power structures so that nothing could take complete control. At that time there was not consideration given to the mega-corporation. It is a new power structure not accounted for in the constitution and as a result is throwing off the equilibrium. U.S. politics are set up as a win-win for corporations. With the Republicans (or possibly Libertarians) they win by privatizing profits, and when the Democrats are in they win by socializing debt.

    If their home state does not recognize their marriage, they will receive no benefit from being married. Thus they will have to move to obtain the same rights as other people. I could care less if people flew to other states to get married, but when their rights aren't recognized, that's fucked up.

    Wha?? You said "Ron P put socialists noses in their shit, so it's normal that he is disliked." In the antecedent, you suggest that RP upsets socialists specifically, and in the consequent, you draw the conclusion that this must be why he is disliked. That's the same as saying "socialists dislike Ron P." If you had truly wanted only to say that he was generally disliked, then you would not have mentioned socialists at all, much less that "Ron P put [their socialist] noses in shit."

    A lot of semantical bullshit going on here as always. People argue just because it turns them on. At te end of the day, you are an idiot for not supporting ron paul. Ron Paul= Common sense. We have a wild beast of a system unleashing at everyone in the world, and everyone is too preoccupied with their soap operas to realize anything.

    This subject isn't up for debate because objective truth cannot be ignored, we can argue all day about the semantics about absolute truth but at the end of the day, there is only one peson moving in the direction of truth and that's ron paul. It's why his voters are the young, the agile, the people who have energy to protest. Sadly though, when Ron Paul is not elected these revolutionaries will be pushed to force a revolution through ecconomic motives since the dollar is going in the shit hole. All objective statements and I challenge anyone to question them

    Personally, I'm a little sick of your fanaticism.
