    Gay Marriage: Did The Supremes Get it Right?

    Ron Paul in today’s Liberty Report wonders why people believe — and the media reinforces — the idea that the courts can “grant” rights, as in the recent Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage. And how would marriage be handled in a libertarian society?

    I agree with Ron. This was a victory for big government.

    victory for a corrupt government.. Don't know what the ulterior motive is, but I guess this is next:

    Polygamy exists in three specific forms: polygyny - wherein a man has multiple simultaneous wives; polyandry - wherein a woman has multiple simultaneous husbands; or group marriage - wherein the family unit consists of multiple husbands and multiple wives. Why not? We are all free to love and marry whomever we want.

    There is nothing in the Constitution or the Amendments to support the ruling. They simply did it because "muh right side of history!"
    Stop believing stupid things

    Nope, they just should have stayed out of it. Just like they should have stayed out of abortion, and several other things over the last couple of centuries.

    They seem to have very few, if any, concerns about staying out of the myriad unaddressed, uncorrected treasonous executive branch and legislative branch unCONstitutional issues.

    Ron Paul is heroic. Even comes out against licensure towards the end of the video.

    People today mostly know him from his older persona, in which his oratory skills have slipped and he's obviously aged. If he were around 50 today, he would be an absolute force.

So advocates of liberty must reject incremental approaches and fight boldly for bedrock principles.
    The epitome of libertarian populism

    Such clarity is refreshing to hear in the midst of all the noise.

    The SCOTUS and the Feds are nothing, but unconstitutional usurpation of powers that has no business with The 10th Amendment US Constitution. This sodomite so-called marriage act is the same totalitarian usurpation as Roe vs Wade Act 1973, National Minimum Drinking Age 21 Act of 1984, The Patriot Act of 2001, Matthew Shepard Act of 2013. Come on, be wise.
