Debate on drug policy completely misses the point

The other day, I ran across an article on Reason.com headlined Marijuana and States’ Rights: A Reason Debate. Intrigued, I clicked the link and perused the article.

How disappointing.

Kevin A. Sabet, PhD, director of the Drug Policy Institute at the University of Florida and a former senior advisor in the Obama Administration’s Office of National Drug Control Policy, and Ethan Nadelmann, the executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, debated the following question:

Should states be free to chart their own course with regard to marijuana policy (both medical and recreational)?

Predictably, the former federal drug adviser said, “Nope. Not outside of  federal ‘law.'”

Don’t Comply, Nullify!

How do you know when the government is out of control?  When you are controlled by the government.   Easy right?

I  saw an image recently with the words  “Caution: Tyranny Ahead!”   I thought, that must be an old one because it’s already here.  It’s all around us.  The people submit to despicable TSA violations and are now stopping dead in their tracks when ordered to “Freeze” by TSA agents.  Yes, it is a sick game of obedience training.  Unfortunately, people today are very easy to train.  The government doesn’t need to reward the people with a treat like dog trainers do.  The “fear factor” has worked wonders for the police state.  Those among us who don’t comply or who speak out for liberty are harassed, threatened and detained by the ‘authorities’.

Tyranny is slipping through every door and window of our home.  I could take up the rest of the day listing each instrument, so here’s just a few:  Obamacare, UN Agenda 21, the Federal Reserve, TSA, FDA, EPA, ATF, FBI, NSA, DHS, Patriot Act, NDAA, gun control measures, militarization of the police, etc, etc.  For now I’d like to focus on just two:  Obamacare and the NDAA.

First, we should not expect the solution to come from Washington, DC.   All three branches of the federal government are engaged in destroying the US Constitution, and have been for a long time.   Regardless of  who wins the presidential election (from the 2 party system) the same liberty destroying policies will continue.

We are the solution.  The only way to take control back from a tyrannical government is nullification on state and local levels.

A Republic, if you can keep it.

We are fast approaching Election Day and with that, the responsibility of every voter to determine which local, state and national candidates will best preserve and defend North Carolina and US Constitutions. Following and preserving these Constitutions or “employee handbooks” ensures our and our children’s freedom and liberties — failure to do so will bring financial collapse and tyranny.

The group organizer should at every function that a candidates for office attends give them a pocket Constitution to remind them that when elected they will swear an Oath to protect and defend that Constitution. It is imperative that they understand what powers they are given and which belong to the states or to the people.

State officials have not only an Oath to the US Constitution but also to our State Constitution and with their Oaths comes the extra responsibility to monitor the federal government, making sure that they have not stepped outside the bonds of the Constitution and are infringing on the citizens’ rights.
