Rand Paul: Republicans Need to Soften on Social Issues
If our government would be libertarian, but allow us to live as conservatives this might be ok. But as we have seen, if you don’t support the liberal lifestyle you are bashed.
Check it out:
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is warning Republicans that if they expect to be relevant in the future and grow the party they will have to soften on social issues.
In an interview with vocativ.com, Paul said he had “sort of a Jeffersonian belief in unity, peace and commerce with all” and that the best way to build the GOP for the future is to include people with whom they don’t agree on every issue.
“I think that the Republican Party, in order to get bigger, will have to agree to disagree on social issues,” Paul advised. “The Republican Party is not going to give up on having quite a few people who do believe in traditional marriage. But the Republican Party also has to find a place for young people and others who don’t want to be festooned by those issues.”
Paul may be eying polls that say that fewer people every year stand against gay marriage, especially the young.
