Good.

The War on Drugs is progressivism exemplified. I hope these high profile Democrats double down on cheering the War on Drugs and attack the libertarian-leaning Republicans for supporting legalization.

I don't like the red team/blue team atmosphere, but let's be real here- the Democratic Party is hopelessly authoritarian on practically every issue. I think it will be better for the country if Democrats decline even further into authoritarianism and force Republicans to counter-them with liberty positions.

Typical Reason magazine

Typical Reason magazine trying to divide. Reason magazine fake, wishy washy neo libertarian ragzine

is too much of a moonbat, even for the Cambridge crowd.

Gotta love all the fools who still think that Democrats are the party of peace and civil liberties. (not that Republicans are any better...)

Wonder how this fits in with the recent drug test scandal...

A signature used to be here!

the current political party structure is breaking down

it's been happening for a while now but with rand's rise it will be accelerated and shattered forever. we are making history!

Rand Paul 2016

Rand Paul's pro-liberty record:

Filibustered CIA nominee John Brennan over Obama’s secret drone killing policy of American’s on US soil
Filibustered the Patriot Act

Blocked a bill from being interpreted as authorizing war on Iran or Syria

Introduced a bill that would end warrant-less domestic drone surveillance

Opposes SOPA/PIPA and CISPA (Internet Censorship Regulations)

Opposes the TSA

Stopped an increase in minimum punishments for drug crimes

Opposes the NDAA (Sections 1021 & 1022 added by Obama)

(Removed a provision that would've allowed detainment even with a court ruling of innocence)

Working on bipartisan immigration reform
("My plan will not grant amnesty or move anyone to the front of the line")

Introducing Hemp Legalization legislation

Introducing Recreational Marijuana Law Reform legislation

Supports States Rights

---
Compare that to Obama and the likely 2016 establishment democrat candidates support of
Starting illegal wars (Libya), SOPA/PIPA, Expanding the Drug War, Raiding Medical MJ Patients, Patriot Act, NDAA, Domestic Spying, TSA Goons, Non-transparency, Drone killing a 16 year old American kid from Denver (Abdulrahman al-Awlaki ), War on whistle-blowers, wikileaks, Pfc. Manning etc etc etc.

That's too bad

I donated to her for her recent election.. but it's not often you have a self-declared progressive thinking backwards on drug policy.

Now I doubt that she is truly concerned with overturning citizens united..

herp derp

Yes, a self-declared progressive, as Alan Grayson, Dennis Kucinich and Glenn Greenwaald are. but I know where this is going, so demonize away.

Better downvote me more, even though all I said is something that I did. Not even an opinion. F*cking babies need to grow up.

Like Alan Grayson, Dennis

Like Alan Grayson, Dennis Kucinich, Elizabeth Warren is a vote for a Audit of the federal deserve.

Elizabeth

Should get in her car and drive half way across the country and back. Maybe she would learn something imo.

Yes, checking into a motor inn in the evening and not getting a room near the office lol, having breakfast at the local diner, stopping for fuel at a truck stop, heaven forbid using the restroom there lol, seeing the under maintained buildings, getting pulled over at spot checks, what about sleeping in your car in a rest area :P, taking 8 hours to get through Chicago, perhaps less now if the construction is complete, etc, etc, Perhaps all reps should have to do this and then something might possibly click in some under used recess of their brains.

GOD Bless

The party line

Why is a Democrat congresswoman making very pro-drug war statements?
Because the president will not sign any anti-drug laws.
Therefore she is free to make very contentious postions and attack opponents for their opposing position.

If Liberty really is the future of American politics, and if the GOP is catching on more quickly than the DNC; the partisan system demands the DNC go anti-Liberty.

Am I going crazy

Or are New England Liberals now against legal pot?!?

The humanities professors @ Benningyon College must be getting nose bleeds doing mental gymnastics right now.

Or maybe, they have accepted a VERY "specific" idea, for their own interests...

That one which is called:

O B E D I E N C E ... to "someone" or "something".

You know... let us not lose sight that this is, ALSO, one out of several possible choices that some people make, during times which are... just as "specific".

It's enough opening a couple history books to refresh one's memory about the precedents.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Why do people assume that if

Why do people assume that if you want to legalize something that means you endorse its use and even abuse? I think alcohol should be legal. That doesn't mean I want people to get drunk, and I don't use the stuff myself. I think owning semi-automatic rifles should be legal. That doesn't mean I want psychopaths shooting up schools. I think pot should be legal because it isn't worth the cost of locking up pot users or dealers and the drug enforcement laws aren't worth the assaults on our civil rights. That doesn't mean I encourage people to get stoned.

She is a reflection of our current culture ... Or

I should say the culture that was IMPOSED on us by the media/educational system/ et al that was taken over by the collectivist.

The fact that we are talking about this shows they will lose. It's all about restoring respect for the truth.

Elizabeth toes the collectivist line

Remember her pre obama "you didnt build that" pro taxation rant

Her instincts are correct on the indirect subsidy that too big too fail banks get from the government and the fed
But watch how she flounders when ben responds
