Republicans and Socialism

#1 Post by AJMD429 » Sat Sep 22, 2018 11:04 am

Good article from Mises.... https://mises.org/wire/republicans-shar ... s-comeback

Sad article from Mises.... https://mises.org/power-market/armed-pr ... years-jail

Too bad that most Republican politicians know that all they have to do is be a little-bit-less-idiotic than the DumboCraps, and they'll get elected time and time again... :|

First, Ron Paul makes a lot of sense in that article. Second, I find it to be criminal that a pregnant woman should face charges stemming from her defense of her own and her child's life. My opinion of the war on drugs is that it is a failure which could be rectified with legalization and taxation. The current laws on DUI should be enough to use against anyone caught driving while impaired by legal chemicals. Why not look at the failure of Prohibition in the 20s. I have never used marijuana at all, but that is just my choice. I would vote for legalization if it included taxation and regulation for purity and avoidance of chemicals such as insecticide residue and caution with fertilizers. If someone wants to use it in the privacy of their home or land, why should I care? Don't harm me and I have no reason to even consider limiting your freedoms. That young woman is a victim of Holier Than Thou Pharisees. Sad!

THANK YOU for taking the time to post a little clarity on the issue.
I'm another mature American who has ZERO interest in any of the so-called "recreational drugs" that are rampant in our country.
I'm likewise another American who has been an observer of the "WAR ON DRUGS". My fellow Americans and I have PAID, and PAID, and PAID...BILLIONS of dollars into government coffers to fight this so-called WAR, and after all these years, all the deaths caused by people willing to kill in order to acquire their drugs, all the prisons, police, etc,etc... I am forced to the conclusion that DRUGS WON.
I'm absolutely in favor of making all of these "recreational drugs" legal. I'm also willing to go a step further and make them FREE to those who "need them", for whatever reason. I don't care WHY. I want the VIOLENCE removed from the "recreational drugs" equation.
You can't get by in America without Cocaine...fine...here you go. How much do you want..??
NEED Heroin...we gotcha covered..HAVE SOME MORE.

Give the dopers all they want...(strictly apply the laws already on the books regarding impairment). Warehouse'em and let'em die off. Problem solves itself in one generation, two at the most.

Fine, if we eliminate all welfare (which we should anyway). Why should someone work hard all their lives, keep off drugs, only to support some lazy drug addict? :evil:

Yep - so many socialist arguments are "....but if you let people _______, then it will cost us so much money."

The item may be riding without a helmet, owning a gun, working on your own car, or choosing whether to be intoxicated with ethanol versus tetrahydrocannabinol.

I have no problem with getting rid of welfare.
