My initial contact (sent May 31, 2007):
Dear Ron Paul,
As a gay man, I would really like to see you take a strong stance on gay rights as you have done with the war and immigration. I read that you are a libertarian and when I googled that term this is what I found:
Libertarianism is a political philosophy maintaining that all persons are the absolute owners of their own lives, and should be free to do whatever they wish with their persons or property, provided they allow others the same liberty and avoid abusing their liberty.
How can you NOT support gay rights and equality if you truly believe the above statement?
Response from campaign:
Dr. Paul voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment, one of only a few Republicans to do so.
Thanks for contacting us,
Ron Paul 2008
According to the research that I have done, Dr. Paul voted against the FMA only because he believes that federal law should not trump state law, not because he believes in protecting or expanding gay rights.
I have not received a reply back from the Dr. Paul’s campaign. Here is an image of the email correspondence with the last names blocked out.
