" Yawn believes government is the problem for the majority of this countries problems, but he also wants to use government to shape the country he wants." Is that okay ?
ABSOLUTELY WRONG.Murder is a moral issue. So is stealing. There are many others. In fact, ALL law is a reflection and imposition of SOMEBODY'S morality. You're also wrong that because a Supreme Court renders a decision, it's final. It is not. Supreme Courts make mistakes. They made one in 1973. EVERYBODY knows it was wrong. It can be overturned. Do a little homework and discover why for yourself--has to do with state's rights. As far as the Gay issue that seems so important to you, MARRIAGE HAS A DEFINITION. What the queers and their supporters are demanding is that the federal government impose their definition on us by CHANGING that definition. Again, you support THAT imposition of homosexual "morality."Like it or not, I still have the right to vote according to my concept of morality. You do too. I can see you will work to put people in office who will impose YOUR morality on the rest of us--the right to kill your child, and to change the definition of marriage. Those are principles I will oppose just as every generation has until this century (2000 to 2012)
I love the government the Founders gave us. I HATE the government and the morality the Democrat Party is IMPOSING on us -- always moving to the left toward Communism.
After 70 years, the government the Founders gave us, ceased to exist.
As long as we continue to think that it is Washington's job to stop other people from doing things we don't like, whether it is abortion, smoking pot, cutting down trees, saying a prayer in school, owning guns, drilling for oil, eating unhealthy food....................................ad nauseum.We will get exactly what we deserve. A massive government that is directly involved in every aspect of our lives. Freedom will become a distant memory.
I think it should remain illegal.The thing that bothers me about this issue (other than a few of you guys who obsess over your "right" to be stoned, I NEVER think about the issue) is that with all of the serious issues facing us, the liberals and the anarchist libertarians spend their days debating about their "right" to go through life stoned. That tells me we're in deep trouble.
You never think about it but none the less excuse the use of violence on people who have harmed no one?I have to wonder how you can justify putting people in jail (which is an act of aggression) who have themselves violated the rights of no one?
You're putting words in my mouth. Why not deal with what I SAY instead of extrapolating my position based on your own bias of Conservatism.Can you tell me exactly what you want??We're talking about the federal government right? What your STATE does is between you and your state.Are you advocating a Roe v Wade type decision from the Supreme Court with the ridiculous claim that will take this from the states and the people of the state?I am NOT going to continue this drug legalization debate with the potheads here. It's NOT my issue. I've told you my VIEW and why, but THIS is not my issue and Im not going to keep debating it. Do what you want. I'll vote the way I choose. THESE are the make or break issues for meAbortionILLEGAL "Immigration"Changing the definition of MarriageTry to stay focused. And no, the authorities are NOT "committing violence" against you if you go to jail for breaking the law. You're just silly.And yes, MIND ALTERING DRUGS DO affect others and society.
The $20+ trillion in debt that Obama is going to leave us in, doesn't even make the top three? Yikes!
Did I say HOW someone should be punished for "possession"? Distribution? Can you provide a link where I said HOW someone should be punished.Why the obsession with this when the country is about to collapse???? DO WHAT YOU WANT. You're useless to your brethren anyway (your obsession tells me so).
Do you want a Roe v Wade decision from the Supreme Court to take this from the states?
If I speed 50 over and kill no one are the police committing violence against me if I have to pay a fine? If they put me in jail?
Do you want a Roe v Wade decision to take away your employer's right to fire you for violating his drug policy?
Again, DO WHAT YOU WANT. smoke yourself silly. I really don't give a damn. There are reasons it should remain ILLEGAL though. I won't wast my time on this
