    He only stated what his definition was -- and has no issue what others' is. Where's the source of your claim?

    Yes, that sound pretty good.
    In The Netherland we have 3 options: Marriage (also for gays), registered partnership and a living-together contract. The first two have minor differences with regard to legal issues when seperating and kids are involved, but they are still quite similar. The 3rd option is a more loose form to make some agreements about how you want to live together, but you don't need a judge to seperate.
    So I guess we already have more to choose from.

    Sure, but the way I understand him is that he wants these laws, that now automatically come into play when two people get married, to be replace by a legal contract between two people. And apart from that people can have a ceremony in church or some sort of ceremonial party elsewhere with friends, and call it whatever they want.
    I lived together for 13 years with a girl without being legally married, but I did consider us married (or bonded), and seperating surely felt like a divorce.

    Yeah people will always be idiots, I feel you. By the way, look up "marriage privatization" on Wikipedia, it blew my mind, I really think it's the solution.

    "for example sleeping with a chick that's morbidly obese"

    But a lesbian girl could say the same thing, so this clearly is not a heterosexual issue. And I'm pretty sure that the 'parts of homosexuality' that disgust you (they may disgust me as well), can also be done by heterosexuals (e.g. anal penetration). A distinction is still being made between homo and hetero, which to me is unneccessary.
    If there really isn't a problem, I'd expect him to say: what PEOPLE do in private is not my concern.

    Absolutely. I totally agree with you on this.
    I just hope that you understand that this is not just a matter of tast. It's not like: I like strawberry, you like raspberry, but we can still be friends, because it's of no importance what fruits people prefer. No, it's more like: I disapprove of your lifestyle, I think it's wrong, but I can still respect you as a human being and interact with you. I'm happy about the respect, but still sad about the disapproval, because it's so unneccessary.

    Ron Paul is the next American president. Obama, I honestly believe you did the best you knew how to do, but in the final evaluation, the presidency is a JOB. I think you may have lost sight of that fact somewhere along the way.

    "legalized" marriage between homosexuals means more money for the government. That's it. That's the whole thing. Tax money--forced financing and government protection of and for private choices made by individuals. These people ENJOY fighting for "rights" NOT listed in our Constitution. I don't HAVE to fight for my rights--they're GUARANTEED in our Constitution(American national law).

    Dear World,

    We, the Real Americans, in supporting Ron Paul to win in 2012, are not just risking our livelihood — but our liberty and life — in order to Save our Nation from the brink of total disaster, and thereby the World!

    Failure to elect Ron Paul as President, will quickly result in us — the ones that dared to speak from heart-and-mind — to be deprived of life and liberty (since all internet posters, and pictured Ron Paul supporters, have already had their identity made by OUR GOVERNMENT…probably in a file for disposing such “undesirables” in the near future)! This will be just a small loss for the few.

    But a Catastrophe for the World. Hope you’d enjoy living in a “Brave New World”…where all your actions will determined afore!
    ———————————————

    It is not that we, Real Americans, want to give up — we won’t!

    But the most powerful government in the world — our own — can, and will, use UNTOUCHABLE Governmental Agencies to quash any-and-all individuals that dare oppose its might, UNLESS Ron Paul is Elected President!

    The only proposal I can extract from his comment (abolish 'married' as a legal marital status) has absurd consequences. Marital status is connected to a pile of other laws.

    You can absolutely be disappointed. But at the same time, I think that's the beauty of freedom. By not using the force of government to force definitions on others, people on opposite sides of the spectrum can coexist peacefully, that to me, is what America is all about (or should be all about).

    This to me right here is the definition of freedom. It's the concept and understanding of individual natural rights that cultivates mutual respect for individual autonomy. In doing so, people of various ideas and beliefs can coexist peacefully, even on issues as heated as the definition of marriage. Just don't go around trying to fucking control people's lives, wow!

  17. nomination policy

    I believe that the news people will make a big service to the public if they inform better or more clearly as to why is it that the public has no saying in nominations for a given party. It will leave a big chunk of the population out of representation

    Basically, there is a need for translation in plain language to the public about this. But maybe there's no longer a country, and that is the answer.

    I appreciate Dr Paul's efforts.

    Shocker In Tampa --- Ron Paul Wins!
    --------------------------------------

    These WILL be the headlines next day --- here is why:

    According to RNC Rule #38 --- at the Tampa Convention NONE of the Delegates are ACTUALLY Bound! Delegates can vote according to their own judgment and conscience --- and are NOT bound to vote according to how most delegates from their state vote.

    Precedent was set in 2008 Utah by Legal Council for the RNC (stating: The RNC does not recognize a state's binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose).

    Also, the Republican (and Democratic) Parties are Private Organizations --- so voting within a party is NOT bound by Election Law!
    ------------------------------------------------------

    What does this mean? It clearly shows that ANY or ALL delegates can abstain from voting in the 1st round. Or in other words --- Bye-bye Mitt !!!

    What do we need to do? Push for as many more delegate wins for Ron Paul as humanly possible --- so a Ron Paul victory in Tampa is assured!

    But most importantly NOW --- SHARE this information (spread it like wildfire)!

      Rule #11 shows Valid Grounds for Mitt Romney to be Removed from the Republican Ticket!

      http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?376049-Mitt-Romney-is-going-to-be-invalidated-as-nominee-of-the-Republican-party!-GTFIH

      It is certainly a Valid Cause to remove Mitt..but even WHEN he is NOT Removed (since the RNC will never allow it), the ruckus caused BY IGNORING THIS RULE will be EVEN more effective as a Publicized Weapon showing Mitt's COLLUSION with the RNC Leadership, in order to CIRCUMVENT the Legal Election Process!

    Why are they asking Paul about what Mittens thinks about such a non-issue right now? The man wants to fix the nation. Gay marriage, ANY marriage, is not on his radar and not his business. Stick to the matters that matter.

    There's parts of homosexuality that disgusts even me. But then again there's parts of heterosexuality that disgust me as well. (for example sleeping with a chick that's morbidly obese.) If you really want to see people frown on your relationship try being in a May-December romance. You can be disappointed if you want to that's your prerogative. but all he's saying to gay community is simply what you guys do in private isn't my concern. do you.

    But you do realize, for some reason, no one will vote him in? It's completely obvious to everyone, even with Obama's recent gay marriage thing, that he will win in November. And Mitt Romney will be chosen to run against him. For some reason, the media just doesn't allow RP to get press or even acknowledge him.

    He clearly stated that according to him marriage is between a man and a woman, but he would not prevent two people of the same sex living together, making arrangement between them, and even call it a marriage.
    Maybe I am completely mistaken, but as far as I know RP personally DOES believe that it's wrong for gays to have a relationship, live together, have sex, etc.

    What in the world are you talking about or hearing for that matter? He's NEVER said he was opposed to SS marriage -- he clearly stated that the definition of marriage should be between the two parties and that he was NOT opposed to anyone else's definition. THAT's the point!! It's an individual rights issue, not a group rights issue.

    "...doesn't mean they have a problem with gay people."

    I agree, he probably would not reject people for being gay, but he also doesn't see homosexual love as equaly beautiful as heterosexual love, which to me it is. I can only assume it's because his christian beliefs. Now, I do respect RP a great deal, and agree that it's more important on how he treats people, but I can still be disappointed, right?
