The Obama’s latest tactic in increasing State
power involves a feigned “horror” at the murders and mayhem occurring
on our border with Mexico. (See here
Seems that ol’ debbil, the Drug Cartel, is once again rearing its ugly
Hydra head by resorting to violence to resolve its problems.
(Gee. That’s a shocker. I’m sure the Drug Lords would fare far better
by taking their territorial disputes with other dealers and their
differences of opinion with the authorities to a court to resolve the
difficulties. Or am I missing something there...?)
While these escalating deaths and mutilations in Mexico and the U.S.
are, indeed, abhorrent and chilling, the hypocrisy of those who create
and promote the conditions necessary for these reprehensible acts to
occur is sickening to observe. It is, after all, the State
that has declared a “War on (some) Drugs.” It is the State
that makes the recreational drug trade so profitable. It is the State
that makes it impossible for those selling (or buying) drugs to use the judicial system. It is the State
that is militarizing our border. It is the State
that is corrupting our financial system and our privacy to combat “money laundering.” It is the State
(and its media shills) that is using this manufactured crisis in an
infuriating attempt to reinstate the so-called “assault” weapons ban, i.e.
, increase victim disarmament.
Even though some people recognize the links between our government’s
drug policy and mounting violence and violations of our rights (for
example, see here
the State shows little evidence of ending a “war” that swells its power
so ably. (Miniscule movements in the right direction — such as ending
federal prosecution of marijuana users and sellers in states that have
legalized or decriminalized such behavior — are meaningless until the
politicos who joke about their own usage either go to jail themselves
or totally end this heinous prohibition.)
The State latches like a leech onto any excuse that will provide cover
for its predations on our rights and freedom. It gorges on our
lifeblood while extending its reach into more and more areas of life.
(For example, requirements for ID and quantity limits when purchasing
some cold medicines.)
The State must cease its unconstitutional and immoral actions. For
adults, there must be no prohibition on nor regulation of the purchase
or use of any
drug of any kind. No prescription drugs.
No ban on recreational drugs. No restrictions on experimental drugs.
The Drug Enforcement Agency should be disbanded, and the drug thugs who
have murdered innocent citizens and stolen their goods and property
should be tried, convicted, and imprisoned or executed for their role
in one of the biggest scams that has ever been perpetrated on the
is a prescription for change I can heartily support.
