War on Drugs




Ron Paul opposes the War on Drugs.

On November 20, 2008 Ron Paul said in a New York Times / Freakonomics interview:

“[…] the federal war on drugs has proven costly and ineffective, while creating terrible violent crime. But if you question policy, you are accused of being pro-drug. That is preposterous. As a physician, father, and grandfather, I abhor drugs. I just know that there is a better way — through local laws, communities, churches, and families — to combat the very serious problem of drug abuse than a massive federal-government bureaucracy.”

  6. I am 66 years old, went through Viet Nam and I have never used any kind of drugs. People who are not going to use drugs are not going to use them, you can legalize all of them and I will not touch them, and people who will use drugs will use them no matter what the law says. I agree with Paul, we need to educate our children about drugs through our communities and the state and get the government out of it.

    • @regisjbeakensr Move back to Communist China Asshole! I would rather live in a country of criminals than your pathetic excuse as a human being. Learn to write! I have noticed people of your mindset are functionally illiterate! Your opening sentence is completely indecipherable. Before you try and solve the worlds ills, get your GED. Go pack to whatever shitty manual labor job you have. You know, the one that doesn't require any writing whatsoever? Stay away from attempting word usage, you may hurt yourself! If you have anyone look at your writing, (that can write) they will tell you there is not a single sentence without error. Thomas Jefferson was the primary intellect behind the Constitution. If you lived during his time, he would have you drawn and quartered whilst smoking a Marijuana joint! Your idea's are similar to Hitler's, so please go back to your Klan meeting and give the Grand Wizard some more "butt lickin'!" He likes it when you do that! He likes it "way better" than I like your attempt at profundity!

      • Calling manual labor shitty? Are you an elitest? You need to respect this countries entire workforce, especially jobs that your soft hands could'nt handle!

      • He has a right to express his opinions.. no matter how convoluted they may seem. This only serves to prove that such ideologies are ineffective and gain minuscule support. I personally do not agree with his entry, in fact, I will argue that it would worsen our current social-economic status. Similarly, I do not agree with the manner in which you have addressed him and his proposal. This isn't about the intellectual destruction of fellow citizens or those from abroad. I will say that his proposal is entirely different from Ron Paul's proposal and a $200,000 is utterly ridiculous, and would serve to fill up our prisons while putting the destruction of personal liberties on the fast track.

        I would also like to mention how ridiculous it is to post figures from a communist country, who's government sifts their fingers through every single personal aspect of their citizens lives and censor's all negative media output against such a regime. Therefore, I do not trust any figures posed by China.

        Why do you have to harp on manual labor? why dont you pick up hammer and frame a house? Oh ya, you cant. Why dont you fix the fence in the backyard? Oh ya you dont know how. Whay dont you stop the drip under the sink. Oh ya you never had to do anything that gives you a blister. Go shuve your fountain pen up your ass.
