The Drug War and All the Presidents' Families
Governor Jeb Bush & President George W. Bush would definitely send Noelle Bush to Prison--(If she weren't the President's 24-year-old Niece, and the Florida Governor's Daughter). After all, rather than face incarceration like regular drug-abusing Americans, our last 2 presidents used political connections to avoid prison.
By the way, I love my native United States, and the tradition of freedom we used to enjoy. If you feel it is in poor taste for a concerned citizen & veteran to criticize our Government, please read this.
Will the REAL Traitor please stand up?
The media hounds have really enjoyed their feeding frenzy over an alleged 'TRAITOR' named John Walker. He was simply a young man who had some misadventures while on a religious sojourn. What the media ignores is a much more dangerous class of traitor. These are the traitors who have created an America with UNEQUAL rights.
Our last 2 presidents are criminals by their own definition.
The fact that MOST people who are found by the police abusing drugs have their lives RUINED by prison but a small privileged few get to go to the White House is abhorrent. If either Presidents Clinton (a confessed marijuana user and sex addict), or Bush (a reformed alcoholic with a cocaine & drug-infested past) had any INTEGRITY at all they'd both have stepped down out of the white house and put on orange jumpsuits for a decade like all the 'other' drug users they are 'protecting America' from.
What HYPOCRITES Presidents Clinton and Bush are!
Clinton smoked his dope and then acted like one while he wasted billions beefing up the drug war we're all losing. I think anyone who comes into office as President when there are tens of thousands of people in prison for doing the same [drug] 'crime,' should have the gratitude & humility to exercise his presidential pardon and let them all out. The fact that neither Clinton nor Bush did, and that both continue the insane war on drugs demonstrates simply that they both believe [contrary to the constitution] they they are entitled to UNequal rights. What kind of a human being could be such a hypocrite? Not one I'd ever vote for!
Both Presidents were sworn into office taking an oath to "uphold, defend, and protect the Constitution of the United States." Both have betrayed the American people and have violated their oath of office.
The Drug War is much worse for society than the drug abuse it purportedly fights.
Here's a few of the horrible things it accomplishes:
Hypocrite Jeb Bush requests 'PRIVACY!'
Today Gov. Jeb Bush requested 'privacy' for he & his hurting family! (As if hundreds of thousands of other drug abusing families with relatives now in PRISON wouldn't also have liked their privacy).
Either these peaceful, private drug users ALL belong in jail, or none of them do!
The president's niece, Noelle, is no different than tens of thousands of other non-violent young people rotting in prisons all over this once free country. To give her special treatment is to violate the EQUAL-RIGHTS CLAUSES OF OUR CONSTITUTION and to openly publicize the immorality of the Bush administration and family. President Bush, I appeal to you to TAKE COURAGE and UPHOLD THE LAW! Either send Noelle to prison, or let all the DRUG WAR POWs go back to their homes and families to lead normal productive lives just like you've been doing since you finally stopped taking drugs. Please make good on your oath of office to "uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution...".
Let the Dopers stay in their [white] houses & make room in prisons for violent criminals!
Even though I'm a Libertarian, I join most Democrats and Republicans in believing violent criminals belong in jail, and dope-smokers belong in the white house, the houses of congress, or their own houses. Instead we parole our violent prisoners early so they can rape, murder & plunder in our streets in order to have enough room in our prisons for the darker-skinned peaceable dope smokers! What smoking dope thought of this strategy?
The people who have consented to this corruption are the true American TRAITORS!
