"You have to remember, rights don’t come in groups we shouldn’t have ‘gay rights’; rights come as individuals, and we wouldn’t have this major debate going on. It would be behavior that would count, not what person belongs to what group."
Dr. Ron Paul
(1935-) American physician, US Congressman (R-TX), US Presidential candidate

Oh, how politically incorrect of you! Whatever happened to "the content of their character"? Whatever happened to personal responsibility?

The worship of collective power feeds the ambition to 'lead' -- the next step, to 'rule'. Hence monarchy, fascism, communism -- authoritarianism -- whatever name you want to give it, it is the usurpation of the individual's own WILL in the name of whatever 'masters' command them.

Of course, it is these rulings from the master that enslave and oppress -- gays, blacks, women, the poor have been compelled to live in subservience by IDEOLOGY itself -- commonly referred to as 'culture.' Some cultures are destined for slavery and oppression by their very nature. Let's not re-adopt well-tried and proven false ideologies that seek to make peace by waging war, and substitute a promise of a sunny day for the current cloudy one.

    A “right” is: - objective to each mortal’s quintessence, a common delineative to every child of our Father, equally inherent in any and all corporeal men - is an individual’s liberty warrant at nature to pursue life’s personally authoritative, inalienable and omnipresent performances without third party affiliation. Any attempt to associate right to a group is a tyrannous maleficence in making the individual a less than human helot, serf or slave.

    "It is strangely absurd to suppose that a million of human beings, collected together, are not under the same moral laws which bind each of them separately." (Thomas Jefferson) "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights," (Declaration of Independence)
