Republicans in Congress just love to control our lives. They say they want “Government” off our backs, but that only applies to things they care about. They have now voted to overturn the legalization of Marijuana in Washington, DC. Here is their reasoning…
“Simply put, we believe that Congress must defend the federal government and the U.S. Constitution by preventing marijuana legalization from moving forward in the District.” — Andy Harris, Joe Pitts.
So… they see marijuana as a danger to the “federal government” and the Constitution. Really? Are there Commies in every ounce? Did I miss the Article in the Constitution that mentions drugs?
They claim to be supported by “science”… I thought they hated science – think Global Warming. But when science is convenient, I guess they can get along with it just fine. (Except they are wrong about the science) They also throw around some decidedly unscientific arguments about increased use and so forth.
But they say it would be a… “…recipe for legal chaos.” Seriously? How could it be worse than the “War on Drugs“?
They are spewing the same old crap we have been hearing for… ever.
Either they believe in individual rights, and less government interference in our lives, or they don’t. They don’t. It’s all just part of their lies while attempting to make sure we live a good Christian lifestyle – as defined by them.
At least, as with Gay Marriage, they are clearly on the losing side of the argument. The country is changing, and republicans are still stuck in the 19th century. They are unable to read the writing on the wall.
But then… that is what conservatives are all about.
