Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said that heterosexual military servicemembers were "causing more trouble than gays" due to their superior numbers in an interview with the Iowa State Daily released Wednesday.

"Well, like I said, everybody has the same rights as everybody else, so homosexuals in the military isn't a problem. It's only if they're doing things they shouldn't be, if they're disruptive. But there's ... men and women getting into trouble with each other too. And there's a lot more heterosexuals in the military, so logically they're causing more trouble than gays. So yes, you just have the same rules for everybody and treat them all the same," he said, according to the paper.

Paul was one of five House Republicans to vote for the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which officially ended in Septmber, and among 15 House Republicans in December. "To discharge an otherwise well-trained, professional, and highly skilled member of the military for these reasons is unfortunate and makes no financial sense," he said in May.

When asked by the Iowa State Daily on his position on gays, he said, "You know I just, I don't think of people in little groups like that. I don't think of people as 'gay' here and 'black people' there, or 'women' over here."

"Everybody is an individual person, and everybody has the same rights as anyone else. The government has no business in your private life, you know, so if one person is allowed to do something so should everyone else. The whole gay marriage issue is a private affair, and the federal government has no say."

The thread's title can be taken in two different ways.

I think this thread goes both ways.

Don't let Fireball see those quotes. I'm sure he'll still find some way to hate on Ron Paul's stance on that issue.

While I appreciate any attempt to get the RnP forum going, why not contribute a little of your own thoughts rather than doing all these drive-by postings?

honestly, drive by postings and updates on who is NOT running for president are the only thing keeping this section alive.

His comment on gay marriage is stupid, but is position on DADT is admirable. There's more than enough that's detestable about Ron Paul, no need to create new things out of whole cloth.

If I had any additional thoughts to add I would have done so already, but as with most of the posts I make that are just news related (both in R&P and off topic) it's just that, news. If a conversation (whether I'm the OP or not) gets interesting I'll add my own thoughts later on.
(Although if it makes you happy, I think Ron Paul standing up for gays in the military is admirable.  icon_wink)

Now, if you'll excuse me I have another drive-by hit and run to make!
