probably would be unpopular with a lot of American drug consumers
so be it
I have yet to hear Gingrich or Romney or anybody else talk about what to do about the Mexican drug cartels - which are the biggest threat to our country since the Cuban Misssle Crises.
There should be morals installed in American society so that illegal drugs arent such a huge demand in the first place.
Just say "NO" to drugs...
LONG LIVE THE MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS
Hopefully in 2012 they will be more powerful than ever and will finally crush their opposition.
What should this next President do about them? Invade Mexico to take them out?
Legalizing drugs would wipe out the Mexican cartels - but that's not "moral", so it's not going to happen.
What exactly do you suggest?
You should pledge to use the space bar.
By removing the unconstitutional drug laws.
Weed save money on enforcement and get to tax it.
Invade Mexico and take out the drug cartels.
Thats what TR would do.
10 Ways the War on Drugs is a Wild Success
Military-Industrial Profits: In a world where contrived enemies were needed to keep a constant funding of weapons
Huge Boon to Private Prisons: The private prison industry thrives off long sentences for drug offenders
Prevents Higher Unemployment Rates:: Imagine if the millions of American currently jailed on drug charges were released into a job market already suffering from real unemployment numbers over 20%.
Suppresses Minority Populations :"According to the ACLU, African Americans make up an estimated 15% of drug users, but they account for 37% of those arrested on drug charges, 59% of those convicted and 74% of all drug offenders sentenced to prison;
Drives Up Prices: : Making any substance illegal will result in much higher prices than a free market would dictate.
Drug Violence Justifies Tough Gun Laws: It's now proven that the ATF plotted to use Fast and Furious to push for new gun control regulations.
Protects Big Pharma Monopolies: No one is happier about the war on drugs than Big Pharma. Their control over the FDA and monopoly of "controlled substances" would be threatened if all drugs were legalized.
Allows Proxy Armies: If you want to create an empire by force, but it's politically disadvantageous to base your army in certain countries, then the global war on drugs is your ticket to supplying troops or creating proxy armies
Keeps Big Banks Flush with Cash: : "Up to 1.5 trillion dollars in drug money are laundered through legal enterprises, accounting for 5% of global GDP."
Funds CIA Black Ops:: Do you ever wonder where the U.S. government gets all that money for their secret "Black Ops" like underground bases, secret wars, corporate takeovers and seed money, etc? It's been proven over and over that the CIA (and Pentagon) controls a large majority of the illicit drug trade either directly or indirectly through proxies mentioned above.
I agree with you. The only way to stop the fucking cartels are to wipe them out! It is war that they're ingaged with us and mexico.
