Politico High On Rand Paul Pot Policy



Scientists say that evolution normally takes tens of thousands of years to occur. But in a remarkable study, scientists have found that the species that evolves the fastest is the mainstream Republican. What else to explain the sudden reluctance of most Republicans to take on the stealth legalization of marijuana? Lighting up the debate on pot decriminalization is none other than Rand Paul.

One Republican outspoken on marijuana is Paul, who has made major overtures to young people and minorities.


What in the world does pot legalization have to do with young people and minorities? Oh, I get it--the white liberals at Politico must be saying that Black and Hispanic people like to smoke marijuana, and so Rand Paul doesn't want to offend them. Thanks for that racist sideswipe, Politico! (Another thought: if Rand Paul wants to make overtures to Politico staff writers, would it help if he supported decriminalization of cocaine and heroin?)

But even if it were true that Paul was pro-marijuana in order to appeal to young people and minorities, is that the best he can do? By offering them illegal drugs? Instead of marijuana, how about offering them liberty, freedom, the rule of law, the free market, and protection of private property? That's something Rand Paul never seems to talk to young people about.

The Kentucky senator, a favorite in the GOP’s libertarian wing, is the highest-profile Republican to support federal decriminalization and the party’s only potential presidential candidate to do so.

Rand Paul is a favorite of the GOP libertarian wing? I didn't know there was a GOP libertarian wing. Who else is a member? Could this be a reference to Rand Paul's good friend Mitch McConnell? Libertarians believe in not interfering with the actions of others. Mitch McConnell certainly doesn't believe in interfering with President Obama's actions, when it comes to executive actions and the budget. Perhaps Senator McConnell is a libertarian too.

Paul has sponsored legislation aimed at preventing the federal government from cracking down on the medical marijuana industry in states where it’s legal. He’s teamed up with Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) to introduce sentencing reform legislation.

So Rand Paul doesn't want to legalize marijuana, he only wants to decriminalize it. What's the effective difference?

He recently co-sponsored a Senate bill to legalize industrial hemp — a less-potent sibling of marijuana.

Rand Paul is the leader in the civil rights struggle... for hemp! His passion for rope making material knows no bounds.

“I don’t want to put our kids in prison for it,” Paul said of marijuana in December. “So if your kid was caught selling marijuana or growing enough that it’s a felony conviction, they could be in jail for an extended period of time. They also lose their ability to be employable. So I want to change all of that.”


Read the above paragraph again. He's not just talking about drug users, but drug dealers. He calls them "kids", as if all drug dealers look like the 12 year old photo of Trayvon Martin. They're not. What Rand Paul is saying is th

Watch Republicans roll over and play dead on Obama's budget


The mark of a good work of fiction is one in which you accept one or two untrue facts but everything else has to be believable. That's a skill the dilettante agit/prop writers at the New York Times seem to lack in an article describing how President Obama wants to reduce income inequality, but nothing in the article even remotely makes sense.

Mark Levin's Challenge to Conservatives


Influential talk show host Mark Levin has called on constitutional conservatives to come up with a way to appeal to young people. Levin said it is not enough to make intellectual arguments for conservatism and constitutionalism, we must come up with a way to reach young people that has emotional impact. I'd like to step up to the challenge, using nearly the same buzzwords that the Left has programmed young people to respond to, like "privacy", "equality", and "investing in the future".
