Want To Make A Drug Lord Laugh?

Just Mention the War On Drugs

Ask any 10-year American kid if it would be harder for him to buy a pint of liquor or a small bag of weed and he’ll laugh at you too.  Legislating morality is always a losing proposition for the government. The most obvious examples are Prohibition and the War on Drugs – oh wait, I forgot gambling, pornography, and prostitution – voluntary “crimes”  where the “victims” are the same people who commit the crimes. And saving us from drug deaths?

The number of drug deaths in the US in a typical year:

  • Tobacco kills about 390,000 people.
  • Alcohol kills about 80,000.
  • Sidestream smoke from tobacco kills about 50,000.
  • Cocaine kills about 2,200.
  • Heroin kills about 2,000.
  • Aspirin kills about 2,000.
  • Marijuana kills 0. There has never been a recorded death due to pot ever.  And how much real crime have we caused trying to enforce the laws against it?

Wave Goodbye To The Mideast

We can’t bomb religious nuts into civilization. 13-years of American blood and treasure is now buried in the Mideast sand.  We answered 911 by wiping out the Taliban and Afghan government. But we couldn’t resist occupying that country, and then invading Iraq, Libya, and a few other Muslim nations. Now we have a record of 13-years of failure: failure in setting up democracies, failure in training the “good guys” to defend their own countries, and failure convincing Muslims they should work for a Western style of life. Obama and company are now telling us this state of American failure will pretty much last forever.

It’s a shame ISIS vermin torture and murder other Muslims – but it’s not America’s shame.  Our main concern should be to protect the shores and borders of our own country. Most of our oil now comes from Canada and Mexico.  Israel has a nuclear defense – no sand army will ever take them over.  Why are we hanging around over there?

Non-interventionism isn’t isolationism – we can still trade with anyone. But we should start discussing what would happen if the US military pulled out of the Mideast COMPLETELY.  Here’s a collection of Pros and Cons to consider the idea:
