Hooray Drug War

U.S. Anti-Drug Aid Would Target Mexican Cartels. We're giving Colombia $5 billion over seven years and Mexico "hundreds of millions of dollars". All of it is going to the totally useless and ineffectual drug war. Imagine how much you could help people (or just not tax people) if we didn't have a stupid drug war to fight.

I think my head is going to explode because of all of the idiocy.

  • Stupac - I've read your blog for a long time now and I like the way you think. I'm actually surprised I haven't seen any Ron Paul Articles.

    Even an on an article like this, wouldn't it have made sense to say that the only presidential candidate who is against the war on drugs is Ron Paul?

  • Thanks anonymous.

    I haven't mentioned Paul much (if at all) because he has no chance of winning the nomination. I really wish he would get it since he's the only Republican who has a spine or a consistent platform (hell, he might be the only politician who has either of those things), but those don't win you elections. The sad truth is that Ron Paul is just too good for the stupid electorate in this country.

    The other thing about RP is that he's all over the internet, everything even remotely interesting about him is on Reason, Digg, and Reddit at least once, and I don't really have anything to add to the noise except "this guy's awesome!"
