  •  Palin Will Steal Drug Freedom Issues (5+ / 0-)

    Sarah Palin this month was a "guest" on Fox Business Network with Ron Paul when she said

    If somebody's gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at to engage in and try to clean up some of the other problems we have in society.

    She prefaced that remark by saying she was against legalization, because "that would just encourage our young people to think that it was OK to go ahead and use it." But when people with donations and votes start saying they're behind her, because they want "the government to mind its own business, not my pot smoking", she'll more likely stop opposing legalization "for the children" than she'll renounce the truly libertarian policy the government leaving it alone.

    Democrats had better legalize pot while they have the power to do so. Otherwise Republicans like Palin will. And Democrats will never recover from the largely true perception that the Drug War was all their fault all this time.
