A quick addendum to my post on Rand Paul and civil liberties. Not only is Paul perfectly fine with government prohibiting marriage between gays and lesbians, it bears mentioning that Paul's anger towards the government for "betraying the medical privacy of ordinary citizens" doesn't extend to women, whom he believes should be forced to carry unwanted pregnancies to term if state legislators deem it so. He also wants to offer legislation "restricting federal courts from hearing cases like Roe v. Wade."
Yeah, that sounds constitutional.
