However, unlike Ron Paul I am STRONGLY opposed to states rights on issues like abortion, gay rights, and religion. See, most libertarians support states rights because they believe in freedom for gays to be exterminated in concentration camps by suspender-wearing Evangelists and redneck fascists.
Indeed the so-called libertarians and constitutionalists are worse than the Republicans. They keep espousing this view that courts should be banned from ruling on same-sex marriage and that marriage should not be recognized by the government. Call me crazy but I think this is a cop-out strategy to avoid being marked as homophobic but still guaranteeing that the government NEVER acknowledges gay rights or homosexuality for that matter.
I believe in gay marriage, I believe in marijuana, I believe in banning hate crimes and workplace discrimination. I don't think people have a "constitutional right" to fire someone for being gay and they certainly don't have a right to commit hate crimes. Ever since Prop 8 passed in CA hate crimes have skyrocketed!
The Founding Fathers believed in state's rights for a reason, and not the reason you mention. A big reason was because of the threat of the federal government getting too many powers, becoming oppressive. Go read the Federalist Papers to get a good idea of what the Founders intentioned. You'll find true liberals (libertarians) stand for the same.
I don't understand your homosexual thing. To clear the issue, a lot of Libertarians are proponents of FairTax (another problem with this game), which is a national consumption tax. Taxes are paid when something is bought on the retail level. And look at that, problem solved, the government doesn't give any tax credits to married couples. Happy now?
I bet you believe in Affirmative Action too, huh?
Just be happy we live in a republic and not a democracy, where a simple 51% popular vote could decide what is law and what isn't.
