I agree with Paul that we shouldn’t try to democratize any more Islamic countries, and should avoid getting involved in wars in Africa.
But I don’t get the comments on gay marriage. The GOP already has plenty in its ranks who support gay marriage or civil unions. The question which Paul fails to address is how the question ultimately gets decided.
Will it be left to the states to decide for themselves as it should? Will Congress retain the power to decide for federal purposes, as it should? Or will the Courts usurp power and impose recognition of gay unions on the entire nation?
That’s what worries me when Republicans talk like this. It makes me think they are okay with the Courts hijacking the issue and imposing the Left’s will. The people of Kentucky overwhelmingly voted to ban gay marriage, and that decision should stand forever unless the people of Kentucky decide to reverse course. I hope Paul at least agrees with that.
I don’t think it matters what Republicans say about any issue. It will just be distorted by the media in order to shape public perceptions that will favor their leftist agenda.

A few years ago, Texas approved a constitutional amendment that marriage is between a man and a woman. So, it’s decided in this state.
