Seven score and one dozen years ago U.S. President Abraham Lincoln said
“Four score and seven years ago our [founders] brought forth on this continent a new nation, [believed] in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”
And that we should endure civil war to
“have a new birth of freedom—and that [a] government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
Does it feel like that now? Are we a government of the people, by the people, for the people?
Or have we become (yet again, what seems like) a government of the liars, by the spyers, for the buyers?
How many of our black brethren have been set free? Not enough. How many have yet to be? And let us not forget every other race and variation.
The Drug War (War on Drugs) is most definitely a form of Civil War; that is, a war from within, waged by citizens on citizens. Although anyone paying attention can see it is nothing near civilized. No matter how righteous and “for the children” they claim.
Before Drug Prohibition, drug purchases were non-violent, ingredients were on labels, and government agents were not pushing drugs pretending to be illegal pharmacists.
Did the Civil War — ostensibly fought to end slavery — bring “a new birth of freedom?” Was it a birth of freedom or a birth in prisons?!
If anyone thinks I am trying to foment violence I have to laugh! Us legalizers are trying to do the EXACT OPPOSITE, allow peace to stay, end the Drug War.
Did you know Abraham Lincoln was supposedly a Christian against Prohibition?
