Jerry, I am sorry about your son and thank you for the prayers for my children. I am just trying to figure out what good the government does by declaring war on drugs, prohibiting, and criminalizing the obviously destructive behavior.
Jerry, I am looking at downstream and upstream prosecutions as well. You put one seller or maker in prison and the remaining ones just have less competition. The state is just doing the dirty work for the cartels. In the end, these are just voluntary transactions amongst consenting adults. Whether it is stupid or not to take drugs is not the fictional state's business.
Jeff, I appreciate the struggles but what does the state, prosecution, court, etc. have to do with improving the lives of these people and those effected?
Jerry, are you saying the drug addicts clean up their lives while in prison? Tim, do you see methheads in your day-to-day life, and if so, does their drug use negatively effect your life in anyway?
Mr. Barkey: Wasting my tax dollars to prosecute people who are only hurting themselves has a devastating effect on my tax bill and everyone's God-given personal freedom.
Scott, I would imagine Mark is not advocating for people to control others' lives. I believe he is saying the majority of the people are too ignorant to see they are allowing people to shear them of their dollars and liberties. Since we are not in Lake Wobegon where every child is above average, it is best to have a system that does not take advantage of that natural ignorance. People can survive without government. Many of these elites would not survive as well if not taking advantage of people who otherwise would probably be fine. I'd bet the grouse would survive pretty well on their own as well.
Mark, looks like the three of us are the Amen Corner of the anti-leftist agenda. Coincidentally, I was watching your video while in that far distant capital a block from K St. Is the end game that the anti-regular Americans that video talks about being elite transnationals just controlling all the wealth and means of production? It can't just be to lower our standards of living, so the proponents must be planning some financial gain from it. What say you?
I'm so glad that the people allowed to and that do vote in Routt County find it so important to encourage the use of my tax dollars to arrest this menace to society, where society means himself and his own body.
Fred, sadly, if these do gooders have their way and shut down the carbon fuel industry, a buggy whip factory might be a great investment!
I was just joking about wanting anyone to move, just a chance to raise the France issue that money is a better motivator than voting.
