    We've noticed that phenomenon regarding the myriad of difficulties with slavery. The state sovereignty argument was used in order to promote the interests of the southern planter class wherever possible, but when a state's rights problem was encountered (say with fugitive slaves), then the Planter class had no problem arguing for big government to get the slaves back from wherever the fugitives happened to be: in another state, international waters, etc.

    Is that the kind of nation you want to become? You really think its that easy? Oh you wanna get married go to Iowa get married then go back to Texas oh but when you return to Texas your marriage wont be recognized then you loose some benefits. What ever happen to "all men are created equal"?

    They have the power to fire anyone for being homosexual. You think thats ok? You dont think there should be protections for that? Would you be ok if the US gov could kill you for no apparent reason other than "an alternative lifestyle"? Does just having such a power worry you? You dont think homophobia runs rampant in our country?
    And no there are many cases like it:
    5 People Who Were Fired for Being Gay, and the 29 States Where That is Still Legal
    Teacher Legally Fired for Being Gay
    This Llama Farmer Was Fired for Being Gay | Out Magazine
    PageOneQ | Man fired for being gay dared by former boss to sue

    It might depend on whether one is marrying for love or marrying for benefits. when I married my wife it was for love, not an extra deduction on my form 1040. Also no one says anyone has to go to Texas either. If you are marrying for benefits, stay in one of the nine states where gay marriage is legal. If for love it shouldn't matter.

    But give it time, states are coming around slowly, one by one, two by twos.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    So if someone wants to get married then they have to pack up move live in the state find a new job make new connections start over. Sounds so easy Then if you ever have to move again and reside in another state and that state doesnt recognized your marriage then i guess your SOL

    So are you saying homosexuals are "chemically imbalanced"?

    Rand Paul doesnt care if states decide to discriminate people, or withhold peoples civil rights! Yayy! As long as it goes along with "state rights"!
    That has been the main reason why the paul's have fought so hard for states rights. They don't actually care about state's rights, they just care about the fact they are more likely to have a prejudicial christian stronghold in the south if they kept the federal government from stepping in on a number of issues like gay marriage, Birth control, abortion rights, and in Ron's case i am sure segregation.
