Why Do I Talk About Marijuana?

We all have personal preferences as to what should or should not be accepted in society. The problem is, however, that people want laws to enforce their personal preferences. Liberty and constitutional government suffer with this approach.

Many people do not like marijuana and think it  harmful to society. Perhaps it is in some respects. But what may be harmful does not paint a complete picture of what our laws should criminalize.

Despite the intentions of past generations that criminalized tobacco and alcohol, a further look into principles taught America that absolute prohibition on these things (a) does not promote good and small government; (b) leads to unnecessary black market criminal enterprise; and (c) unnecessarily grows government prosecution and taxation.

We learned that the laws created a greater evil to society than the prohibited thing. And as we accept in politics, the lesser evil is better than the greater evil, right? Thus, the focus should be, to what extent should government be limited in criminalizing human activity–not simply, is this activity considered generically harmful.


Educate, Advocate and Participate

“Somebody ought to do something!”

“I’m tired of shouting at my TV but what am I to do? Write a letter? Send an email? A fax? What for?  “They” don’t care about us and they’re not listening!”

“What are we supposed to do?”

Sound familiar? Well, Patriots, there’s not one thing you can do—there are actually three options to choose from—as a 21st century Patriot you can exercise one, two or all three at the same time!

Imagine, if you will, a trident—a long three pronged spear commonly associated with the classical god of the sea—Neptune(or Poseidon). The first prong is “educate,” the middle—“advocate,” the third—“participate.” The trident is the Patriots’ best weapon in the fight to save our republic from those hell bent on shredding the Constitution and replacing it with a “living” document. Here’s how.

Educate—First, start with educating yourself. Have you read the Declaration of Independence? The Constitution? How about the Bill of Rights? Remember them from civics class? Oh, that’s right; civics class has long since vanished from the majority of our schools. Only old guys like me remember learning about local, state and federal government and how they are supposed to work together; laws—and how they are to be created, argued and passed and how those laws are supposed to be interpreted, enforced and by whom.


Bullets, Bullets, Bullets…

via People against the NDAA

Recent reports have surfaced that the Department of Homeland Security, The National Weather Service, and Social Security Administration are attempting to and purchasing large amounts of riot gear, bulletproof checkpoints, stop and go lights, and ammunition.

Most recently, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration purchased 46,000 hollow-point bullets.” This purchase order accompanies those from other agencies within the government, who are also purchasing large quantities of ammunition.  The purchase orders for ammunition consist of 750+ million rounds of bullets which include hollow point organ damaging bullets, and wall piercing mag rounds. In a recent article, the Washington Times claims the purchase order for some 46,000 bullets was for “training officers in the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement.

These bullets are for training? Hollow-point bullets can leave an exit hole the size of a grapefruit. What or who is our Government training its agents to shoot?

A purchase order was uncovered on FBO.gov which includes up to another 750 million rounds of various types of ammunition.  It was “said” in the cover for the order they were to be used for training purposes yet with this amount of ammunition, bullet proof checkpoints, riot shields, painting everyday Americans as terrorists, and working with the Army the government seems to be training for an upcoming Civil War.

Madison Ruppert of End The Lie posted a YouTube a video called “End of the Line”  claiming that the US government was obsessed with snatching up seemingly all the ammo on Earth to points of absurdity.  He noted that we simply DO NOT have the money to be buying hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition for United States Government Agents to “train” with.
