"Ron Paul Republicans!" Getcher "Ron Paul Republicans" here!

From the "Official Ron Paul Candidates" list, May 6th:

Congressman Walter Jones (NC) Primary May 6
William Lawson for Congress (NC) Primary May 6
Erich Smith for Superintendent of Instruction (NC) Primary May 6
Congressman Paul Broun (GA) Primary July 15
Congressman Jimmy Duncan (TN)
Matt Chancy Public Service Commissioner (AL)

Here's the lowdown on "Ron Paul Republicans" as of May 30th:

In response to the California Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, U.S. Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) introduced an amendment to the U.S. Constitution defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman. ... The amendment would include the following language in the constitution: "Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this constitution, nor the constitution of any state, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman."

At least Broun displays more integrity than Paul himself, whose past proposals attempted to illegitimately legislatively nullify, rather than openly and honestly amend, the Constitution in order to facilitate government oppression of non-heterosexuals. Still sick, wrong and evil, but at least openly so instead of trying to play both sides of the fence and hide it under a gravy of "states rights."

I'm sick of hearing from alleged "libertarians" that Paul and Co. are somehow superior to Libertarian Party presidential and vice-presidential nominees Bob Barr and Wayne Allyn Root. It's not even close -- the "Ron Paul Republicans" are full steam ahead on their anti-freedom agenda in this policy area, while Barr has announced a goal of repealing his own past atrocity on the issue (the Defense of Marriage Act) and Root has come out in full support of marriage equality.
