I agree, it is complex....<quoted text>
Left and right makes no more a lot of meaning for me. I was so happy when Obama got elected. The first genuine-pothead-US-president!
I thought that he would at the least stop the harassment of the MJ smokers and I thought he would at the least keep his promise to not let the feds interfere with the states. But he didn't. I lied to myself in assuming that the task was hard, and that he did not have much control. But what came as a shock was the NDAA notes. I mocked the idea, when I heard of it one year before, of such detention of american citizens, as a conspiracy fantasy, but not only Obama signed those notes, but his administration is the one insisting on the precise language which makes the NDAA notes equivalent with the usual well known dictator trick.
If you want me to the left, then I will define the left by people like Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, or Normal Solomon. Romney is at the right, and Obama seems to me at the extreme right, I'm afraid. With Obama, I don't believe America is controlled by Americans, but only by international non transparent criminal special interests. Hard and sad time. Now we have to legalize MJ, only for saving democracy and the consitution.
voting for any mainstream politician means a vote for further prohibition...
yes, Obama was the guy in high school, with the bags of weed for sale after school.
........ and at first they gave the order to lay off patients.
then they realized how safe an electoral bet california was, and went for the law and order vote....something he surly could win re-election WITHOUT.
what happens now with the dea and the justice dept will be interesting to watch...but I doubt much will change.
I vote always along the lines of what is best for the population at large....I do admit, i like ron paul and gary johnson when it comes to their stance on prohibition and empire, as well as the fed???
but after that?? those two emerge from the same clown car of deregulating EVERYTHING for the wealthy,( to tilt the economic playing feild that much further towards the elite), that EVERY oher mainstream republican emerges from.
at least Obama favors capital injection into the economy.
the middle class creates the demand, dont you agree??
so keeping cash in their hands is crucial, as capitalism doesnt REALLy work for the masses, as it naturally accumulates wealth at the top.
thus weve had wealth redistribution mechanisms built into the economy of the 20th century...
as opposed to 19th when the robber barrons set thier own prices, and used labor like disposable capital, with no regulation at all on saftey and work conditions or hours.
their actions were the REASON we had the progressive age.
with you that the world is basically run by the corporate cartels that keep weed illegal at the federal level.
they have SO much to lose by its gained popularity and finding out WHAT other things POT and its derivative chemicals can cure!!
anyone with half a brain can see the profit motive for supressing something as miraculous as cannabis.......... and in the corporate world, one cartel relies on the next..... they definately look out for each other.
