But I don't use illegal drugs, yet somehow the cartels still seem to be able to earn money from supplying drugs. Why is there still demand? Perhaps the law-abiding are not the problem? Gee, I wonder if the cartels have a vested interest in maintaining things as they are? To the degree of supporting the status quo ad infinitum?
I on the other hand have a vested interest in not supporting a police state hell-bent on making the life of a law-abiding person impossible. Frankly the so-called "war on drugs" seems to be run in the "liberal" style, ie milked forever as a source of power over the law-abiding with no end in sight, just continued pointless escalation somehow enabling both the prosecutor and the outlaw to prosper at the expense of freedom. Change the law now, that's what I say!
Probably the only thing that could help Mexico now is for the US to invade and create a frontier all the way to Veracruz. And that's a sad state of affairs for the Mexicans, especially for the people who won't be in the frontier zone.
You ask a lot of questions. Good questions too. But the answers are very simple.
Libertarians (foolishly) believe that if we legalize drugs, then all our problems will disappear. The billion dollar cartels will suddenly become legitimate US taxpaying enterprises and billions of dollars in tax revenues will solve our problems. All the while thinking that drug use will DECREASE!
Libertarians are stupid, but we know that.
Libertarians are pro-drug. And along the same lines - they are open border liberals. Illegal immigration (and the drugs these immigrants bring in) is not a problem to them as they think we can simply de-criminalize the millions of illegals who are taking American jobs.
Did I tell you Libertarians are stupid? But that's not all, There is so much more that these RoPaul Occu-tard types believe. Things like pro-abortion and pro-porn laws are good. Things like laws are amoral.
But the fundamental belief that pro-drug laws will benefit America? That is the key component of a true liberal.
Just de-criminalize it and tax it. That's the ticket.
No matter where one stands on the legalization of drugs, the war on drugs was the single biggest attack on the freedoms we took for granted, growing up decades ago.
Now the war on drugs is exceeded by the war on terror in it’s assault on our freedom. Together, these wars to make us safe have destroyed the very freedoms they claim to protect.
My prediction is that we are about to be “protected” from cyber terror and child porn. Of course they will -only- need full control of the internet, and for everyone to have a unique user ID.
“Change the law, first, then use if you want to. Until then you are as much of the problem as the cartels.”
What was meant. . .
“Change the law, first, then PEOPLE CAN can use if THEY want to. Until then THEY are as much of the problem as the cartels.”
Perfectly stated and I’m in perfect agreement!
