“And why? Because he wants to limit our military activities overseas”
No, there are many more reasons than that.
He is a blame America first guy. He says heterosexuals caused more problems in the military than homosexuals, and supports them out in the military, also of course, supports the redefinition of marriage. He wants street drugs and prostitution legal. He doesn’t want the federal government in any way involved in making abortion illegal again. In short he is a social liberal who hates the military and only makes sense on some economic issues.
“He is a blame America first guy.”
Perhaps I don’t know, But i supported him for his radical position on domestic Federal Goverment downsizing & cuts.
Not to nitpick but given how few homos there are in the military that’s not a hard statement to make statistically. As for their being open about their abomination that should always be forbidden in an origination that requires men to work together in a non-sexual fashion.
That being said our Military beleive it or not is a standing army for imposing the leftist agenda by force, as it was in 1861. If you recognized that, you might also see the need to break it down.
A standing army is a larger threat to our liberties then any foreigner now existing. This is true simply because all foreigners with the means to project power of that sort almost never have the interest & willingness to do so. When they do we can rebuild our army to stop em.
Here I am without reservations with you and against Paul. Marriage is not something the Government can legitimately define or redefine.
It is a pointless union unless it is for children(thus also family). Love is NOT the reason the state was ever involved in protecting marriage. Indeed the only thin the State does today to “protect” marriage, is to make divorce somewhat inconvenient & expensive, while encouraging co-existent.
Beyond I think you would agree that the State has been a catastrophic influence on Marriage given what it has done after it took over & regulated the traditionally religious & cultural institution.
The FEDERAL Constitution no more mentions plants & the power to prohibit them then it does abortion and the power to mandate their legality upon the States.
I wouldn’t say say that a social Liberal wants the nanny state power to impose cultural values(or at least try). Libertarians beleive the power in itself is an evil and we both know its unauthorized for the Federal goverment.
With Paul you still get to have your State interfere with your private culture. But Washington leaves them alone.
As with the Federal military, to be frank with regard to history they are like it or not a tool of the Federal goverment that has been successfully used by the same to shove its lawless will down our throats.
There are no major & immediate threats, and we have nether the obligation nor the finances to pick up the defense costs of all the rest of the world.
If our “Allies” were really our allies they would be defending themselves & only calling upon us when actually engaged. Right now most of them are what you call “Free loaders”.
