" There are many who say ‘I believe in freedom, I believe in liberty—as long as you don’t do stupid things or do things I consider immoral.’ … But it’s not up to the government or you as a neighbor to say… ‘well, we don’t like the way you use your liberty. Your lifestyle is not what we like; you go to a church that’s not a good church and it has crazy ideas and we wanna ban that church; and you read books that aren’t good books and we wanna ban those books; and you have a sexual lifestyle that we don’t endorse; and you put stuff into your body and into your lungs that we think are bad for you; and therefore we’re going to have the government make you a better person.’ …

Just because you allow somebody to have a lifestyle you disapprove of doesn’t mean you have to endorse it. A lot of people don’t quite understand that. They think legalizing freedom of choice is an endorsement of what people do. And there’s no reason in the world that this can’t bring people together. If you have people on the left and people on the right and they want liberty for something over here, and somebody wants liberty for this over here… why shouldn’t everybody come together for liberty to use it as they see fit?…

It’s so crucial that we realize that [economic liberty and personal liberty are] one unit… that liberty is liberty and it’s your life and you have a right to use it as you see fit.
by Ron Paul, from his speech at LPAC on Sep. 20, 2014 (via laliberty)
