Posted on 05/06/2013 2:59:10 PM PDT by EveningStar
A battle within the Republican Party over same-sex marriage is unfolding on two fronts, in public, and behind the scenes. In the latter case, one of the most influential players is a billionaire hedge fund manager largely unknown to those who dont work in finance or mix with political mega-donors.
That man is Paul E. Singer, who over the years has used his wealth to spur Republicans to support gay marriage laws. Now, Singer is expanding his reach with the creation of an advocacy group which aims to spend millions influencing the legislative debate over same-sex marriage across the country.

What makes this person a Republican? Why can he not be a Democrat? This is a Post story, so he may be, regardless of what they write.
Follow the money
Where does this all lead?
I am thinking it leads to “fellow travelers” infesting all levels of government until they are saturated and control everything.
Like the Nazis in Germany, they want to have people with no moral compass in charge. Then they can get them to do all kinds of horrifying things
Are you saying the author is lying about Singer’s political affiliation?
He is making the GOP more libertarian.
Romney Agenda again.
Polygamy, more Death Panels and Amnesty coming
from the GOPe.
Is this the guy that proposed/supported sex with chickens ?
The voters are ready for a new party.
It’s not possible. Homosexuals are powerless. downtrodden, impoverished, and violently discriminated against. They have no clout whatsoever.
The last successful third party was the GOP - over 150 years ago.
If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals -- if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.-- RONALD REAGAN, Reason Magazine, Jul. 1, 1975
Those libertarians are fakes and loud mouth goon bent on destroying the conservative momentum and movement then. That is why I have been going after them as much as the democrat progressive-liberals.
I wish I could say that, deadpan, without cracking up.
And that is why libertarians feel they have to infiltrate the GOP with their agenda. They quickly saw they were the antithesis of the conservative movement so they are plotting to destroy it from within.
Like the Nazis in Germany, they want to have people with no moral compass in charge...
Hey, libertarians are weird and nutty, but they’re not as bad a the GOPe and the RINO side of things.
LOL, not much to cling to is it?
1975 Candidate Reagan speaking to a libertarian magazine and trying to win them over just paragraphs before he proceeds to disagree with libertarianism and show himself as a social conservative and strong on national defense, yet here we are almost a half century later, and that quote is all you have.
Here is something more appropriate and relevant to this thread, the 2012 libertarian platform on homosexual marriage and the overall homosexual agenda what they are promoting with the GOP.
“”1.3 Personal Relationships
Sexual orientation, preference, gender, or gender identity should have no impact on the government’s treatment of individuals, such as in current marriage, child custody, adoption, immigration or military service laws. Government does not have the authority to define, license or restrict personal relationships. Consenting adults should be free to choose their own sexual practices and personal relationships.””
The guy is a covert liberal operative. Why we put up with him as a “republican” is not logical. The RINO elite leadership must get a lot of money from him.
