If TRUMP 2016 loses then I will shrug off my WHITE MAN'S BURDEN and leave the world to the Dindus and Done Nuffins. Read and understand Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged as a prescription for the future. TRUMP 2016

The federal war on drugs is the left's RKBA: Even when "their guys" get into power not nearly enough is done.
The article gives slight mention to growing number of States that are legalizing medical and even recreational use of marijuana, instead choosing to grouse that Obama hasn't shown some bold leadership on the issue.
And yet, like the move from highly discriminatory permits, to shall issue permits, to permit-free carry, it is the individual States that are showing the leadership, courage, and innovation on the question of marijuana use.
Of course, lefties can't admit or praise this lest they actually give props to the principle of federalism with its diversity among the States and "50 laboratories of democracy" working much more independently of DC mandates. Heaven forbid we recognize the virtue in a little more cultural and legal diversity among the States.
Personally, I'm not yet convinced that legalizing recreational use of pot or other drugs is a good idea. But I'm thrilled to have several States taking point on the issue and providing experiments with real results that others can watch and learn from.
All experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. Thank heaven we do not permit a few to impose anarchy.
"With Anarchy as an aim and as a means, Communism becomes possible."
"Communism and Anarchy [are], a necessary complement to one another. "
--PETER KROPOTKIN, "Anarchism: its philosophy and ideal." 1898.
