    @noblablabla Crime in Colorado has not spiked to the levels you are claiming first off. A simple Google search sheds light on what is really going on. Again, as an adult in a free society, do I have a say over what I do to my body? Do I have the right to poison myself with nicotine and alcohol? If so why not add pot to the mix? In a free society I should have the right to put a gun to my head and pull the trigger. It doesn’t matter what your opinion is, as long as I do not harm others person or property. At that point protect your person and property as allowed for by law. For every horror story you have about weed, I have an opposite story to tell. You can make up statistics to support your narrative but at the end of the day it doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad, it’s up to the individual. Only when that individual steps over the line and affects your person or property do you get to have a say.

    The question shouldn’t be is it good for you, is it not addictive, etc.. The question should be do I as an adult have the right to consume marijuana? Imagine a prohibition on cigarettes, e-cigarettes, or alcohol. Adults would argue that it should be their decisions to make. I believe the same argument suffices for marijuana. We are not asking you to agree with the uses for marijuana. We are not asking you to agree with the consumption of marijuana. What is being asked is that you do not force your morals on others through the use of violence that is government. You do not have to agree with marijuana itself, but any non fascist, non communist, non big government adult should respect others rights to use it.

    Thank you for understanding the difference between Anarchy (no government, free market, privatization of everything) vs these lawless morons. To bad most have never heard of Anarcho Capitalism.

    Still confuses me why so many Conservatives love Lincoln. He literally wiped his *** with the Constitution. He was one of the most detrimental things to happen to this country. His actions are all laid out in black and white for all to see, but everyone seems to overlook it.

    @mrca…A new party that represents and listens to the middle class? Why does anyone need a party period.

    The government is suppose to protect us from foreign and domestic enemies, arbitrate disagreements between States and citizens, uphold the Constitution and that’s about it. So why should any group have the power of the Federal Government to force their will on other groups?

    How about we get rid of all this party crap> The Federal Government according to the Constitution has very limited power. That is why we have the 10th Amendment. 50 separate States where you can play around with forcing your will on others, but only in your State. Keeps the disease from spreading as fast.

    The problem we have now with our Federal Government is that for almost 200 years it has been passing laws, rules, regulations that are not in its power to enforce. All because the people screamed and threatened that if their will wasn’t forced on others they would not vote for them. Then we turned it into a game, where you pick teams and battle it out every 2 or 4 years. There is little difference anymore between the D and R placed in from of government officials names, but the average person will blindly cheer their team. The GOP has done nothing in over a decade to stop progressive ideas from infecting the country, they use fear mongering and threats of Dem’s winning office to do as they please. They believe we will vote GOP purely out of fear of a Dem winning. Well those days are over, for me anyway

    Once again I will try to explain it. I have never had such a hard time trying to get so called “people of common sense, logic, and reason” to understand such a simple concept but here goes. I will use a parable in hopes it helps better to understand.

    A man breaks in your house and steals $5, and you shoot him.
    Liberals, and emotional twits would say how could you kill a man over $5.
    Practical, rational Conservatives would say why would he risk his life for $5.

    Me choosing not to vote for whatever piece of **** the GOP tries to force down my throat is not causing the GOP to loose the election. They are causing themselves to loose the election by not running a decent candidate. As long as we have a two party system we will always have it forced down our throat.

    The only way to solve this dilemma is for the States to enforce the 10th Amendment, doing away with any party system (as it was in the beginning). This gives the States the power, the President no power (so who cares who wins), and allows us 50 separate States to enjoy, each with its own style, unaffected by the others. You get to live by your States morals without the Federal Government forcing a one size fits all government on you. You can even have tons of social welfare, but you pay for it yourself. No using the Fed to steal from other States to fund your habits.

    Same thing I have been saying about GOP candidates. The same people that will mock Bernie supporters for voting for Hillary, mock others for refusing to vote for the GOP candidate blindfolded. Getting harder and harder to distinguish between the left and right. Especially when so many are basing important decisions on pure emotion and ignoring reason. Only reason someone like Trump and Bernie are even in the race is pure idiotic emotion. Emotion has it’s place, but when it conflicts with common sense you know you are about to make an ass out of yourself.

    They won’t legalize it because of all the money and jobs that will be lost. Last hearings that where held a ranking official in the DEA pleaded that thousands of jobs would be lost, and law enforcement lived in fear of legalization. What a horrible reason to trample rights, and keep these drug cartels in business, to create jobs. In that case lets make everything illegal and create millions of jobs.

    Have the guts to comment and debate. Don’t thumbs down a comment because you don’t like facts. Grow a pair, stare the facts in the face, and hopefully we won’t end up with our gun rights taken in the future.

    @dnewton The chemical reaction your talking about is the same thing our military uses to heat MRE’s.

  • March 28, 2016 at 1:34pm

    Enough already. Either we are at war or we are not. If we are then stop doing business with these Muslim countries that have anything but our best interest in mind. If private business chooses to do business with them, that is their right, and up to the consumer to voice their opinion about such actions with their dollars and cents. But as far as the Federal Government is concerned stop doing business with these animals, and start dropping bombs. Don’t rebuild, don’t start drilling again, move on and let the desert swallow them up. You can’t have your cake and eat it to.

    If States would take back their 10th Amendment powers, then the whole thing wouldn’t matter. You could elect a ham sandwich to office of president. READ the Constitution and stare in wonder at the lack of power the Federal Government actually has. When the shock wears off, demand your State put on their big boy pants and take back their power and responsibility that they have given to the Federal Government. The biggest freedom we have in this Country is CHOICE, which is being taken from us by a one size fits all Federal Government mandate. Imagine a Country with 50 different choices of how you want to live your life, each paying their own way, and accepting the consequences of those choices. No intervention from the Federal Government forcing other States to bail out those that made bad decisions. Your anger should be focused at States who take the easy road and sell their/your rights to the Federal Government for road, education, and other grants and promises, which at this point in time is all of them.

    How the hell can you be a Libertarian Socialist? Maybe you meant to say Anarcho Socialist? Socialism and Libertarian are oil and water.

    Well then try this https://mises.org/blog/gun-control-obama-looks-reagan-and-bush.

    If you can’t trust the Mises Institute then it’s time to burn this sh** to the ground. All these so called Conservatives throw a fit when a Dem is in office, then when a Republican forces tons of gun regulation down our throat they say and do nothing. STAY VIGILANT YOU MORONS. I really am beginning to think the majority of humans are mentally retarded.

    Actions speak louder than words. This is one area where Obama confuses the hell out of me. Under Obama we have gained more gun rights than under the past 3 Republican Presidents.
    Nixon: Gun Control Act, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms created
    Reagan: endorsement of the Brady Bill and 1994 assault weapons ban
    Bush1: Crime Control Act
    Clinton: Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act
    Obama: Repealed a law and now we are allowed to carry guns in Federal Parks/Forest, and on Amtrak. Obama didn’t reinstate the Brady Bill. Obama’s current gun proposal is less drastic than Bush and Reagan.

    According to Mises Institute it appears gun owners have more to fear from Republicans than Democrats. The point is do not trust ANYONE with your RIGHTS. Just because they wear a title that is suppose to defend your rights means nothing this day in age. So next time a Republican gets office make sure you make as much noise and are as vigilant as you are with Obama.

    Trump is winning. But the funny thing is no one is admitting to supporting him. Where I live I have seen 2 signs and 1 bumper sticker. Everyone you talk to says he makes them uncomfortable. Yet he is still winning.

    Everyone says we need to compromise on issues. So what issues are we to compromise on? Guns, Abortion…I mean I don’t see any room for compromise, and am not sure what is meant by we need to come together. I want to government to abide by the Constitution. I want my State to take back it’s rights. I want unconstitutional laws, regulations, and mandates reversed and left up to the States as intended by the Constitution. If all these things are done, then it doesn’t matter who the President is because he wouldn’t have much power, and the power he did have would be shackled by the Constitution. This way all the little issues we can’t agree on like gay marriage, etc…can all be left up to the 50 States. 50 different regions, with 50 different choices of lifestyle, morals, and laws. Each State abiding by its morals without affecting neighbor States. If it doesn’t affect you, then you shouldn’t care. Hence the problem we have now with a 2 party Central Planning Government, where every decision affects every person in the country.

    Conservative voters are not fragmented, the party is. What has happened is you have Libertarians, Conservatives, Republicans, Anarcho Capitalist, and Moderates all being forced into one GOP party. That would be like me asking a straight man to compromise his heterosexuality. That is what you are asking of these groups when you say they should compromise, no one should compromise their morals.

    The Federal Government is making laws, rules, and regulations outside it’s scope of power according to the Constitution. The State Government is abandoning it’s rights under the same Constitution. A simple solution would be for States to take back their power giving us 50 different living scenarios.

    Fragmented on issues is only a bad thing when your neighboring States opinions have a direct affect on you. So I can see how aggravating it must be when someone won’t budge, but see their side of it as well. What makes your morals more important than theirs? That is why this one size fits all government we have created will never work, and States need to fill their roles as intended. 50 separate States with drastically separate morals, all united in the defense of freedom, liberty, and expression of ideals.

    The 2 party system is a failure, and forces us all to bend our morals, and enslaves others to our will.

    America the land of freedom and choice. Unless it’s candidate choice. Why is competition good in economics but not in politics? Why not a third party? What we have now is two gas stations who have agreed to jack up the price of gas. A new station willing to come in and lower it to break the monopoly would be a good thing. G. Washington said political parties are a bad thing for the reasons we are now witnessing. At least a third party would alleviate some of the monopoly the GOP and Dem’s have over our lives.
