Scandalizing Leadership!

My fellow Americans, lovers of Liberty, we have been betrayed over the last century by scandalizing leadership creating this changeling America. Shame on them and us. Has Mr. Big Change Obama also sold out to morally bankrupt, war-and-fear-monger leaders with no respect for the Constitution or the Bill of Rights?

We do not owe respect to tyrannical leadership. We are founded on the principals of self government; freedom from big government tyranny and oppression. We are founded in the principal of freedom of speech, open debate and the rule of law. The First Amendment does not protect debate where one side includes the threat of, or an act of violence. We need protection from violent extremists on both sides of the debate. Developing a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens increases the chance of violence at would-be-peaceful protests.

Special interest money has a huge influence on our resident bully, Uncle Sam, and it has a tremendous effect on both foreign and domestic policy. Members of Congress, without ethics, effectively sell their votes to those who can give them money and keep them in office. The best, true solution to this is to return to Constitutional or small government and a free market or not trying to control our economy. Let ethics and the free market rule!

The web has enormous potential for exposing truth, forcing major news media to become the real watchdogs they are meant to be instead of government/corporate propaganda machines. It is the fastest growing communications medium in the history of the world. A powerful tool, a window of opportunity, in our war of good over evil; the Internet continues to revolutionize the way we communicate and has enormous potential for reshaping the political process.

The Spirit of 1776 was the Holy Spirit and is our true North. The real visionaries, who laid down our laws, those who defined what an American patriot would be, were rebels with just cause. They made it not just our right but our patriotic duty to rebel against big government corruption. It was revolutionary, a giant step away from tyranny! Our founders knew big government would always mean a gang of evildoers.

Please consider the voters trust violated by machines (manufactured by Diebold and other ATM makers) that give individuals no receipt of transaction and makes no hard copy to audit. Uncle Sam is way too big for his britches. We are going back to the people are grand and government is small plan, the revolutionary idea of self government.

There is no force for change on this planet more potent than one based on a moral issue. Moral issues cross all the boundaries of faith, political philosophy or race in which we may differ. The most powerful movement this planet has ever seen, a ground swell ethical revolution around the world is in progress!

Terrorism is mutual suffering. Non-government organizations (NGOs) in unprecedented numbers worldwide are calling for de-nuclearization, de-miltarization, economic justice and responsible corporate behavior. They know education and the nonviolent path are key to make this sea change in our behavior that will save and sustain life as we know it.

We can be brave and end the terror by changing our intrusive, big-bully policies, both foreign and domestic. The monetary and environmental costs are staggering and the human suffering unconscionable. Take action now join the Campaign For Liberty!

Throughout history people have found ways to alter their conscienceness. In primitive societies psychoactive plants were sacred and ingested with care, with supposed spiritual intent, but use was often limited to a corrupt powerful few who used fear and superstition to control the masses.

Today to celebrate, to relax, to just feel better, to live without pain, fear, uncertainty, depression and doubt we use our favorite legal or illegal drug. Nationally, globally, enmasse, we are a High Society!

Get tough on violent crime and let nonviolent people make their own health choices.

Unless the medication is approved by a physician within federal guidelines, drug warriors are against anyone feeling good, being at ease, being pain free. The people believe in self-government and self-medication. Warriors can get their adrenaline rush making us all safer, catching violent predators! Harassing the sick and dying is an un-American activity.

FRANCIS CRICK, the Nobel Prize winner, was under the influence of LSD when he first figured out the double-helix structure of DNA nearly 50 years ago. LSD is finally back in the labs.

If prosecutors cause a grave injustice they should be prosecuted, duh. Right here in Big D, the battle for justice turns to ethics! Craig Watkins is a Dallas County district attorney whose Texas jurisdiction leads the nation in DNA exonerations.

What kind of life, what kind of world do we want to create? Focusing on the true nature of creativity as a spiritual issue, not an ego issue, can help us transform ourselves and our world. This simple shift in focus creates the nurturing atmosphere needed to work together to overcome obstacles and solve problems.

A regulated market is safer because it means buyers are more assured of product purity and potency. Patients get good safe medicine, governments get sales tax. It is safer for society because law enforcement can focus on DUI and crimes involving violence. LEAP says it will cut crime by half! Black market profits will no longer support terrorists and other violent, despicable sellers.

Alcohol and psychotropic pharmaceuticals trigger violence in our homes and schools. This focus of our limited resources on so-called illicit drug use does not make our children safer.

Effective drug education based on medical science builds student's confidence to make informed responsible choices. Present policy falsehoods and scare tactics undermine our credibility. We want to encourage drug free behavior not awaken their curiosity. Truth, trust and reason encourage open communications between youth, parents and faculties.

Save the children, just say NO to prohibition! Trigger less violence, racism, tyranny and ruined lives!

These numbers tell a damning story: the total number incarcerated have risen from 1980 to 2003 at an alarming rate. States' jumped from locking up 19,000 to 250,000 poor souls. The fed's jumped from put away 4,900 to 87,000. Local law enforcement collars jumped from 17,200 to 155,000 in 2003!

Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) promotes legalizing drugs because it is a safer policy for the individual and society. The FBI's "Crime in the United States" recently released report is evidence that out-of-control policy is a failure; a drug free America is a utopian dream.

In 2008 there were 1,702,537 arrests for drug law violations, or one drug arrest every 18 seconds. "In our current economic climate, we simply cannot afford to keep arresting more than three people every minute in the failed 'war on drugs,'" said Jack Cole, the retired undercover narcotics detective who now heads the group.

I really like how our media watchdogs (in this video of White House's press secretary being questioned about President Obama's views regarding marijuana legalization) actually tried to do their job and kept after this representative of the big government propaganda machine. They just keep parroting that a few people with a special interest took over their website and made cannabis prohibition the main topic. That is not what happened! More and more Americans see this as a nightmare policy!

Many supporters of a change to science-based policy do not use so called illicit drugs or plan to but are just compassionate liberty lovers! Supporters of change to science-based policy believe; less people will be lost to violence, suicide, overdose and skid row or will stoop to prostitution with policy that offers help and treatment to addicts in place of incarceration.

Science should trump politics! We have to have a scientific basis for investigation findings and our laws; otherwise, it’s no different than witch-hunting. The tobacco, alcohol and prescription drug gangs cause more death annually than all illicit drugs. We tolerate their salesmen.

Mason does a great job of defending our position of cannabis is a safer health choice! Denver is divided even though the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana by adults over 21 years old was made legal. Initiative 100 amended the Denver Municipal code and was passed into LAW!

Some more interesting numbers: Currently in LA there are 64 McDonald's, 65 Chevron Stations, 168 Starbuck's and 186 medical marijuana dispensaries.

KopBusters: Yolanda Wins Federal Court Hearing--Examine The Evidence! The video proves Yolanda was set up. All the evidence is there for you to examine including falsified and doctored police reports. Also a new video posted of kops caught on a hidden camera playing video games during a drug raid.

The DPA Reform Conference 2009 will be held November 12-14 in Albuquerque, NM. Help continue the unprecedented momentum toward positive change. "The energy of this gathering is like no other. You will meet people who challenge you, who inspire you and who could be partners in your reform efforts. Register now to attend the Reform Conference and experience all of this in person. Thanks for all you do," Ethan Nadelmann, Executive Director - Drug Policy Alliance.

Changing who's in charge will not affect much. The real cause of this huge quagmire of failed policy is the beast, big government, that money hungry beast, Uncle Sam! Ma Freedom tells it like it is! The beauty of it is when we focus on down-sizing our government we regain our roots of self-government and secure the blessings of liberty for future generations and ourselves.

The last 10 years is a

The last 10 years is a serious understatement. At this point there is no turning back. My goal is to just stay out of the governments way.

The amount of change needed is not worth the effort considering it would take too much time. I am not willing to spend my entire life working on it even if there are a few huge improvements; which would be unlikely in my eyes. It is more important to me to live my life the way I see fit irregardless of what the government tries to dictate.

And to those who say I am the type of person who created this mess: No I am not. It's the people who voted. The majority. The sheeples.
