    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    If those were the choices- Johnson. I'm sick of Bushes and Clintons. We need some new blood in DC.

    If those are the only options, I'm not voting. It's just that simple. There's no Conservative candidate there, so I'd simply choose not to vote.

    Uh...okay.

    The notion of a rigid separation between church and state has no basis in either the text of the Constitution or the writings of our Founding Fathers. On the contrary, our Founders' political views were strongly informed by their religious beliefs. Certainly the drafters of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, both replete with references to God, would be aghast at the federal government's hostility to religion. The establishment clause of the First Amendment was simply intended to forbid the creation of an official state church like the Church of England, not to drive religion out of public life.
    The War on Religion by Rep. Ron Paul

    He rejects the notion of "separation of Church and state", instead seeing the issue as "free exercise of religion" and "no establishment of religion".

    Same-sex marriage

    Asked his opinion on same-sex marriage in October 2011, Paul expressed his support for marriage privatization by replying, "Biblically and historically, the government was very uninvolved in marriage. I like that. I don't know why we should register our marriage to the federal government. I think it's a sacrament." In the same interview, when asked whether he would vote for or against a state constitutional amendment like California's Proposition 8, he said, 'Well, I believe marriage is between one man and one woman."[146]
    Abortion

    Paul calls himself "strongly pro-life"[158] and "an unshakable foe of abortion".[159] In 2005, 2007, 2009, and 2011, Paul introduced the Sanctity of Life Act, which would have defined life as beginning at conception at the Federal level.[160] However, he believes regulation of medical decisions about maternal or fetal health is "best handled at the state level".[161][162][163] He believes that according to the U.S. Constitution states should, for the most part, retain jurisdiction.
