Also note: the RNC is, like this board, privately owned and ran. We have, as you know, certain limits on free speech here. The Republican party is well within their rights to control the content of what is said at their event. It is not a freedom of speech issue, which Paul still has, but that the Republican Party is not going to give him a platform if he is not going to say what they want. If I hold a political rally to express support for SSM, I am not giving FRC an invite, nor am I likely to give some one who has said potentially damaging things on the topic a free platform to speak without knowing what they will say, because they would be saying it on my dime. That is capitalism, something libertarians and republicans are supposedly all for.
