Indeed---but where did any of the Founders say that government could create virtue in the people, or that government was even fit to decide what "virtue" is?

People have to discern such things as virtue and principle and govern themselves by them.

So in the context of the Wod_list, which you pinged, that's a vote against the War On Some Drugs.

Hmmm... let's just say that in discussions regarding the most appropriate drug policy, discussion of what is and is not American political philosophy have come up and this should help to define.
