Opinion by Greg Chamberlain
As someone who is deeply against The Police State, having a government tell me who I can and can't marry fills me with a bit of contempt. Which brings me to another reason why I support Ron Paul, the true candidate for personal freedom of association. Ron Paul's answer to issues surrounding Government and Gay Marriage is basically that the federal and state governments have no business involving itself in the issue of marriage, and only did so for bureaucratic health reasons starting about 100 years ago, and is overstepping it's boundaries. He calls marriage a religious or church issue. I humbly agree and appreciate the fact that Ron Paul is not pandering to any group of people on a whim for campaign cash or unearned votes.
If the government was not involved and neither sanctioned or prohibited marriage, gay or otherwise, all gay couples would need to do is find a minister who would marry them... plain and simple. Thank you Ron Paul!
