Well he didn't exactly put it that way, but that's basically what he comes out for in this shocking video clip:
"We've got to take a look at what we're considering crimes and that's one of 'em. I'm ... I'm not exactly for the use of drugs, don't get me wrong, but I just believe that criminalizing marijuana, criminalizing the possession of a few ounces of pot, that kinda thing it's just, it's costing us a fortune and it's ruining young people.
Happy Holidays DP'ers!
I'm glad I could get this out to you all in time for Christmas! This track, "Ride 'Foreward", will be the opening track to my album, and I would like to dedicate it to The Daly Paul, and all of you Revolutionary American Patriots here at the Daily Paul and in our Freedom Movement! Thanks for your support and all of your own efforts to our cause! You are all truly an inspiration to me personally.
I've finally got iMovie working like new again, after months and months with the Ken Burns' Effect and other editing tools malfunctioning, so this accompanying video is a step or two up in quality compared to my last few videos. I hope you enjoy the experience, and have a very Merry Christmas!
I'm sure you're all aware that Dr. Paul has told the NY Times that the odds are "at least 50-50" that he'll run again for president in 2012! With that news, everyone stay happy, motivated, and focused, and we'll make sure he gets in office this time around!
"Gather all your cavalry horses, Patriots. Ride 'Foreward!"
Forever In Liberty,

Potential Mont. jurors stage 'mutiny' in pot case
Published: 01:28 p.m., Sunday, December 19, 2010
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Potential jurors staged a "mutiny" during a felony drug case, a Missoula County prosecutor says, and authorities worry the result will be viewed as a game-changer when it comes to future attempts at prosecuting drug cases in Montana.
Nearly all 27 Missoula County residents during the jury selection process on Thursday told District Court Judge Dusty Deschamps there was no way they would convict anybody of having a couple of buds of marijuana.
"I thought, 'Geez, I don't know if we can seat a jury,'" said Deschamps, who called a recess.
Missoula District Court: Jury pool in marijuana case stages ‘mutiny’
By GWEN FLORIO of the Missoulian missoulian.com | Posted: Sunday, December 19, 2010 6:30 am
A funny thing happened on the way to a trial in Missoula County District Court last week.
Jurors – well, potential jurors – staged a revolt.
They took the law into their own hands, as it were, and made it clear they weren’t about to convict anybody for having a couple of buds of marijuana. Never mind that the defendant in question also faced a felony charge of criminal distribution of dangerous drugs...
Well... though not during the trial itself, nevertheless what this case illustrates is that the Liberty/Freedom fervor still seems to be alive and well, and in full effect, in Montana!
In response to Is Anyone Getting *SCARED* Yet? I ask, What is there to fear? That they'll take all of your wealth and possessions? Put you in a cage? Torture you? Throw you to the dogs? Kill you?
Welcome to the human condition. It's been going on since the dawn of humanity. We all draw from a common lineage of ancestors who faced it, and unless we change things, our progeny will share the same fate.
There no question there is fear. The question is what to do about it.
The way through the fear is to face it. But first you must name it. Turn off the TV and think about it, with your own mind and your own voice, not through the mediated voices of Corporate News that have colonized all of our minds. Write it down, if you dare (or are you too afraid?).
It is okay to be afraid. But understand that is what 'they' (the oppressors) want. Manipulation though fear is a technique that is well known to those in power, through the ages. Fear makes the masses much easier to manage. People who are afraid will do anything they're told.
"Under ordinary circumstances, the release of information labeled "secret" violates U.S. law, as intelligence specialist Manning undoubtedly knew. But if the U.S. is an aggressor state, as Germany was when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939, doesn't that change everything? America under President George W. Bush attacked two small nations that posed no threat to it. Former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan told BBC the US-led invasion of Iraq was "illegal." He said it contravened the UN Charter as the attack lacked Security Council approval. MIT Professor Noam Chomsky in his book "Imperial Ambitions," (Metropolitan), called the U.S. invasion of Iraq as "open an act of aggression as there has been in modern history, a major war crime."
WARNING.....extremely REAL! Coming to your city NOW!.

The R3VOLUTION goes to England

Award-winning writer Peter Gemma recently interviewed Congressman Ron Paul for England's The Quarterly Review, in a piece called "Common Sense and Conscience in Congress."
The Quarterly Review has a rich history dating back to its original founding in 1809. The original ceased publication in 1967, with a modern version appearing in 2007, and it has since featured in-depth political writings from many various and wideknown figures. I hope you enjoy it.

It is a painful video.....
The document would appear to expose a high-ranking US official advocating a selective leak of otherwise confidential information to achieve a European political objective on behalf of US private industry.
The law that was considered in France would have made farmers and biotech firms liable for pollen drift of their modified crops -- a move that "could make any biotech planting impossible in practical terms," the Stapleton wrote.
It was essentially the same principle the US employs for environmental pollution: the polluter must pay. GMO firms, however, are given exception to those regulations in North America.
