Marijuana BAD, bombs GOOD!By BluPheonix at 6:21 PM
Greetings #AAR chatters and those of you that have stumbled across this blog. Welcome to 1984. , and it's time to reclaim the word "LIBERAL"!!!! As some of you know, I am a proud Canadian. Now I know what you’re thinking, "why is a Canadian LIBERAL in here discussing AMERICAN politics"?! Well that’s a fair question and I would like to answer that now.
The answer is, that American policies influence MY countries policies, and I find that totally unacceptable. Take the marijuana issue. Canada wants to decriminalize pot, 73% of Canadians want the silly laws on pot dropped. But the American government has said "no you cannot do that, repercussions will be trade sanctions, and tighter boarders". Last time I checked, Canada was its own country, subject to the laws of no one country, especially America. $222 billion dollars is what the U.S spends on the “war on drugs" per year!! When we have incontrovertible proof, that despite this grossly expensive bill, more drugs land in the U.S now than at any point in history. Roughly 600+ Tons of cocaine a year. That is triple the amount consumed before the “war on drugs" began. Most of the hard street drugs in Canada, come here from the U.S and China. What we have here is an extremely well conceived plan.
FACT: Those with criminal records do not get to vote in the U.S
FACT: People like drugs; it's just the way it is
FACT: More Americans are put in jail for drug offences than any other offence
THEORY: Get more people doing drugs, get them caught with drugs, throw them in jail, and take away their right to vote.!
See what i mean?...clever isn’t it..?!
ahhhhh....1984, when you can go back and edit time...;)
