Thoughts on the drug war

Your statements seem to imply that you do not fully understand the argument against the so-called 'war on drugs'. Many of us who oppose such a drug war do not do so in order that we may smoke weed at our leisure or freebase cocaine at will. There are moral, practical, and constitutional arguments for ending the obviously failed and criminal war on drugs. Wildly grouping all "dope-smokers" and judging them as largely irrelevant discredits any argument you may have against Kokesh's actions.

Furthermore, we may not agree with how an activist goes about proving a point; however, we do not have the justification to sit back at our computers and loudly criticize them for their actions. [You may have the right but not the justification.] Additionally, this only serves to create dissent within the movement and is both unnecessary and ill-advised. If you would like something done differently or feel that your plan is the only proper way, then get out there and do something. Other people's actions should not affect your stance one way or another.

Yes

i understand the argument against the war on drugs as i'm against the drug war myself for reasons OTHER than doing drugs ! HOWEVER that doesn't mean i have to agree with drug 'use' to be against the war on drugs. How you can sit here and deny that Adam having mushrooms in his home when the authorities showed up at his house did not and will not neutralize his quest for a second amendment debate or doesn't help to put my second amendment rights in jeopardy is beside me and nothing you can say will convince me that it didn't. Adam Kokesh could have drawn a LOT of national attention to the second amendment debate by doing what he did IF he hadn't gotten busted with hallucinogenic mushrooms.
I'm 'wildly grouping all dope smokers because i'm trying to explain to you that that is how society views dope smokers and drug users which is why Adam will be viewed as such.
'Furthermore' I have just as much if not MUCH more justification for loudly criticizing Adam for his actions because it could have a adverse effect on my second amendment rights which i value very much. In fact i have MORE justification in my criticism of Adam than you do sitting behind your computer in your mothers basement criticizing me for my actions in what amounts to a simple website that really has no effect at all on ones Constitutional rights which is NOT the case with Clowns like Adam Kokesh.
I practice my second amendment rights on a daily basis and i do not need to provoke the authorities to do so and I don't need a special event to do so and i damn sure do NOT need Adam Kokesh to tell me how to do it and where to do it when i am perfectly able do it all by myself, no weed, no DMT , No Adam Kokesh , No arrest and no magic mushrooms required. You people should try it that way sometime...

Samuel Adams

For your information ....

.... I am fortunately not "sitting behind" my "computer in" my "mothers basement". I am actually a banking professional in his mid-30s (with a wife, child, and, yes, a house of his own) who calls illogical arguments and BS when he sees it. Your assumption otherwise illustrates your narrow-mindedness when viewing a topic. Furthermore, claiming that you have "MORE justification" for criticizing Kokesh does not simply make it so. He is an individual who makes his own choices. If you think he should have done something differently then, by all means, get out there and recreate his situation/history and do things how you deem appropriate.

Note: I too am against the war on drugs but do not condone drug use. Your superfluous use of capitalization and exclamation points seems to indicate that I may think otherwise. Additionally, for the record, I never said anything about you having to agree with drug use to be against the war on drugs. You seem to draw illogical conclusions from other's statements - which can effectively neutralize your argument in a debate.

All in all, Kokesh's drug charge should have no adverse effect on anyone's 2nd Amendment rights. These are not connected. It sounds as if you are merely disappointed that Adam did not handle the situation as you would have preferred. Unfortunately, we do not live in an ideal world - as is evidenced by the current state of affairs. Personally, I feel it would have been best if Kokesh and his roommate were hosting a Bible study group and singing gospel hymns with children from the local adoption shelter at the time the amateur commandos flash-bombed the house. However, this is not what took place. Directing anger, disrespect, and criticism toward an avid member of the liberty movement is, as previously stated, ill-advised.

Finally, I too am from Texas, am licensed with a CHL, and have a variety of guns with which I am proficient. This is stated so you don't happen to presume you are conversing with a "libtard". [For your future benefit, I would like to offer a bit of advice. Work on your grammar, logic, and debating skills. It will help you out tremendously when engaging others in the future.]

You're repeating yourself

If you got what you expected from Adam, why so angry?

Is it only the dope smokers that you want to banish from the cause?

Well, now it's just an

Well, now it's just an expanded conversation about individual rights.

The right of an individual to choose to use drugs is also a right being restricted by the government, and it's protection, like the right to own guns, is important.

The claim is they found drugs. Drugs they planted?

These are masked criminals, who knows what they might pull.

NO

without the second amendment you have no rights. The fact here is he screwed up both debates by being stupid enough to combine them. Now this won't even be a national debate except among the choir. Hope you enjoy debating yourselves because this will go nowhere...he f$ked it all up with the drugs. Stupid is as stupid does...watch and see.

"Without the 2nd Amendment you have no rights"???

"Without the 2nd Amendment you have no rights"???

What???

Rights are natural, and unalienable. They pre-exist and pre-suppose any man-made laws. Natural rights are inseparable from the individual.

For example, someone can take away your liberty, by kidnapping you. But they can't take away your RIGHT to your liberty.

God forbid, someone could take your life by killing you, but they can't take away your RIGHT to your life.

Someone could steal your property, but they can't take away your RIGHT to own that which you labored for.

I think what you meant to say is: "Without the Second Amendment, you have no ability to defend your rights."

On that...I agree!

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Clowns

I cannot help but wonder if these jackbooted, stormtroopin,goose stepping, thug clowns have any clue how ridiculously silly they all look to anybody but themselves ???? Do they actually attempt to convince each other that what they are doing is some form of "noble cause" for the greater societal good? 50 lbs of riot gear strapped on, complete with face obstructing gas masks in the middle of the July summer heat to snare one man ! What a freakin' joke !! Enough firepower to start a small war and most likely numerous weapons tucked into every orifice the human body will accommodate. They probably all take turns ass smackin and high fiving each other right before they jump out of the command central van. Where do they find people willing to subject themselves to this governmental mind control and brainwashing?? Does an instructor at the clown factory academy MK Ultra them into believing that every American citizen is the enemy?? Inquiring minds really do want to know because this would be downright hilarious other than the fact that it is simultaneously so oppressive and dangerous ! How did the average street cop, whose mission it was " to protect and serve"( wink, wink), evolve into this hideous caricature of empirical subjugation? Guys, seriously, do yourselves and all of the rest of us a favor and "Just Say No" ! We have become the laughing stock of the planet !

Awesome!

Well said. Thank you! I am still chuckling!!!

They need to come out from behind their masks.

Unmasking the Criminals

Never happen my friend. The official explanation would be " that would compromise the next mission at a time and place of our choosing". America has devolved into a nation that has discovered that murdering "enemy combatants" and robbing it's very own citizenry of their lives and liberties is a task that is best accomplished anonymously and from a distance via remote control actuated by an Xbox controller in a desert basement!I cannot comprehend a more cowardly act! This is why the end of life from 30 thousand feet dealt out by a robotic flying death machine holds such an affinity with Bark Obomber ! And amazingly, the majority of the people of this nation do not have much of a problem with this? Perhaps when Obomber decides to use an American citizen or two as test monkey target practice for the latest drone cranked out by the M I C, they will see things differently?

Jack Rose

Does this just proves they are criminals hiding from justice.

Or at least cowards hiding behind badges and masks.

they didn't murder his dog..

It had to be someone

Thanks Adam. Thank you for being on the front of the freedom charge.

This is exactly the over reaction

That he wanted. Now can he get the MSM interested for the show trial he wants ? He will probably need to pull another stunt during the trial.

Adam baited them

and they took the bait, it's a cheap publicity stunt. Whoever ordered a swat team raid swallowed it, hook line and sinker. Were they really expecting an armed confrontation? I seriously doubt that, and what's up with the gas masks and flash bang grenades? Really? LOL

Lincoln's federal criminal gangs roam today. 150 yrs of tyranny.

If this is their reaction to Kokesh's shotgun load video, can you imagine what their reaction would have been to his planned July 4 armed march?

A massacre?

Okay, I need to head to a more positive post with Ron Paul's name in it and calm down. But damn that was just so infuriating to see.

So insulting.

AMERICA ?! Anybody "UP THERE" ?!

So, that's the new "normal" to send a near-batallion to serve a warrant to a dude who happens to have a loud mouth when he decided to speak out on the principles he has at heart to defend?

Has anybody seen a lilly or tulip creased anywhere by Adam?

Or a small decorative rock he'd have rudely displaced?

A child or mother he's hurt or disturbed somewhere?

Or an elder, maybe?!

H U H ? !

What's going on, exactly?

He didn't tell and HE ACTUALLY HAS A WAR HEAD ready for launch from his backyard or what?!

What am I missing?

Care to share?

Yeah, lets find all them bad peoples for the liberty movement and SWAT TEAM RAID THEM!!! (Good plan!)

Kokesh just posted on his facebook:

Here you can see where the feds busted down our door and threw a flash bang grenade into our otherwise peaceful home. Have they no shame? Have they no decency? Have they no respect? I don't think so but I can only hope for personal remorse for all of the scum bags that were a part of this raid.

That means those 'brave,

That means those 'brave, heroic, exemplary, brave' cops were scared shitless of him.
