Hello, my names Ryan i'm 16 and have always been raised as a neo-con. Recently i've started looking into things for myself and realize that Ron Paul has swayed me away from that. He seems like a cool human being(rare in politicians) and has beliefs that stick to what made our country what it is today. I honestly though don't know much about politics and came to this site helping you guys would help me learn more and make me able to hush the RP nay-sayers out there. Well thank you for your time:)

P.S.- I love music, that's where I got my name. My favorite band, Pink Floyd, fused with another band I like, The Doors:cool:

"Wish you Were Here" is one of my all-time favorite songs. I love the lyrics...very appropriate for helping someone "come out of the matrix":

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.

Welcme to the forum, Ryan! Sooo glad you are here :)

P.S. My favorite Doors song is "The Ghost Song"

Thanks for the comments, sorry i've been busy I should be active by this weekend. And "Wish You Were Here" is my favorite song. It holds sentimental value to me. One Ron Paul question I had was what's his stance on gay marriage?

For day to day enlightenment I recommend reading Mises.org (might take you a little more reading before you understand everything) and LewRockwell.com (entertaining and the commentators always make the most clever points).

Good luck on your adventure!

State issue

Thats not really the case with him, although he may support leaving it up to states in order to get the federal government out of it initially. But there is more to the story.

Ron Paul believes that the federal government should not recognize ANY marriage, straight or gay. He believes marriage is a religious issue that should be left up to religious institutes. Ron Paul does not believe in legislating morals period nor does he believe in the government, state or federal, to get involved in religious issues. He is completely 100% against a marriage amendment that would define marriage.


BUT - since the federal government does indeed get involved he believes every individual human being regardless of sex should be treated equally. He has been directly asked before and he has said "Sure they should be able to get married and call it whatever they want." He has also said regarding this issue: "all voluntary associations should be protected by the law"

Ron Paul is the type that even tough he may disagree with something he still believes it should be protected by the law. As in this quote on prostitution "They have the right to so whatever they want with their freedom but I don't have to agree with it"
or from a speech in congress:
"Government cannot make people morally better by laws that interfere with nonviolent personal acts that produce no victims. Disapproving of another's behavior is not enough to justify a law prohibiting it. Any attempt to do so under the precepts of liberty is an unwarranted use of government force."

Rest assured, when common sense can provide an answer to an issue that is where Ron Paul stands.

That's basically how I feel. I don't think there should be a government institution of marriage.
