SO IT'S NOT A LOCAL ISSUE. It's been a federal issue since 1936 when the prohibition started.
Sure -- bribing folks for support. Good plan.. Fuck the "district" lines. State is NATURALLY divided into free and occupied areas.
You like the "top 2" primary system that officially BARS AND PREVENTS anything but 2 names on General Election ballot?? No ACCESS to the ballot by Indies and 3rd parties? TWO DEMOCRATS only offered for US Senate in 2016?
Thats stuff that would make the Old Soviet Politboro proud man. Good work....
So this is exactly the kind of logical fallacy you accuse me of doing! This is precisely a non-sequitur!
You've never capable of arguing within parameters you don't set up for yourself. There haven't been federal laws passed on how you wipe your ass.
You have a very juvenile view of the world.
so, scrap it all, in favor of your communist totalitarian state?
Fuck you. I am sticking with them.
Why do you think the feds investigated and convicted!? Because state laws against corruption are a) non-existent and/or b) not enforced .
And I said "didn't bother OR weren't capable of it."
So you do that sophist thing where you selectively edit and read what someone says and then craft an emotional, hyperbolic, and melodramatic response based on that fog of controversy. It's what Toddster does all the fucking time.
So again, you'd be wrong because the federal officials convicted on corruption charges since 1975 are widely available. A quick Google search reveals it. You're just being too fucking lazy about it. Another callback to Toddster; laziness.
Thank god for Federal overstep. Otherwise, we would all be little house on the prairie, right Derp? Federal Gov's abuse of its authority saved humanity, right?
How's that? We have the internet today, so I can know about CA politics from my computer in Atlanta, GA. I can also travel to CA any time I want to see for myself. "All politics is local" is a misnomer the internet has killed. A politician in Sacramento knows as much of what constituents in San Diego want as I do. I can find out just as easily as they can, just by going on social media and asking a question. In fact, I'll probably know more than that Sacramento politician because I'm not spending all my time around rich people and corporations, soliciting their donations.
Again, we live in the 21st century, not the 18th century. Join us.
And we're finding now that every issue is looking like it's a national issue;
Climate change - national issue
Health care - national issue
Drugs - national issue
Education - NATIONAL FUCKING ISSUE
Everything appears to be a national issue once you dive into the specifics.
Like drilling in ANWAR, for instance. That's a national issue because it has to do with national energy policy. So it may only physically affect Alaska, but it commercially affects everyone.
Are you kidding? I've said that I want to change federal policy to end the prohibition. That's why I vote for politicians who want to reclassify pot. That's why I support candidates who want to end the prohibition. This country's patchwork of legality doesn't make any fucking sense. Pot is legal, in some form, in 29 states that cover the majority of people in this country. So that says to me that it's not a local issue, but a national one.
SO IT'S NOT A LOCAL ISSUE.
In fact, pot is legal in some form in 29 states for more than half the population.
So that clearly means it's a national issue.
