Author of Reclaiming the American Right: The Lost Legacy of the Conservative Movement
Con to the question "Should Gay Marriage Be Legal?"
"[Legalizing gay marriage would be] a disaster for those it supposedly benefits: gay people themselves...
Extending the authority of the state into territory previously untouched by its tender ministrations, legalizing relationships that had developed and been found rewarding entirely without this imprimatur, would wreak havoc where harmony once prevailed...
[I]f 'gay pride' means anything, it means not wanting, needing, or seeking any sort of acceptance but self-acceptance. Marriage is a social institution designed by heterosexuals for heterosexuals: why should gay people settle for their cast-off hand-me-downs?"

"[A]t least one of [former Republican Presidential Candidate Pat] Buchanan's California supporters is waving the rainbow flag. Justin Raimondo of San Francisco is running against Democrat Nancy Pelosi for the 8th district U.S. House seat. Raimondo is gay and he supports Buchanan--a rare combination that's netting him newspaper and TV exposure..." "Public Eye," Metro (Silcon Valley, CA newspaper), Feb. 28-Mar. 6, 1996
"Raimondo started out like many Individualists as a fan of Ayn Rand. As a teen, he imitated Rand by changing his first name from Dennis to Justin, a supremely Individualist act. (Rand's birth name was Alissa Rosenbaum.)" , Brian Patrick Mitchell, Eight Ways to Run the Country: A New and Revealing Look at Left and Right, 2007
"...[T]he story of the gigantic Israeli spy operation in the US – and its mysterious activities in the weeks prior to 9/11 – continues to amaze and shock even me... [T]he Israelis were watching the hijackers and/or their associates, and they very possibly had access to a complete set of the conspirators' phone records, if not direct access to the content of their conversations... [T]he Israelis have the phone lines over at the White House, the Defense Department, the Justice Department, and, for all we know, your local dogcatcher's office bugged to the max. So they have the capability to know where and when practically every phone call in the US, and large sections of the rest of the world, is made, and to whom. As fantastic as it sounds, given the advance of technology and the reputation of the Mossad, I'm willing to believe it." "9/11 – What Was Israel's Role?," Antiwar.com, Dec. 17, 2001
