The problem Mr. Stossel is that you are way too late to the party. I visited Gary Johnson's campaign website about 6 months ago and felt then that he was a very credible candidate. But the lamestream media was too busy "fixing" the election slate and chasing false stories instead of generating a solid discussion of the issues that are pushing this country over the edge. We have been terribly let down by our press and politicians. Their actions are criminal in my opinion.

In regards to legalizing pot, I think they should legalize all drugs and make them the same as alcohol. Controlled and taxed. Let the people that want to blow their brains out by doing drugs get on with the business of thinning the herd.

I also think that prostitution should be legalized but again controlled through licensing and regular health checks.

Stop trying to legistate morality.

Both of these actions would create more jobs and boost the economy and deflate the underground economy of the mob and the drug gangs.

Do it!
All political candidates call themselves freedom-lovers, but they are not. Neither major party really opposes government control of the economy or of our personal lives. I'm a libertarian because I see the false choice offered by political left and right: Democrats talk about personal liberty; Republicans talk about economic freedom. But what they do once in power belies their words.

I say we're best off if government just leaves us alone to our peaceful cooperation with whomever we please. Let politicians advocate moral behavior. Let them give to charities. But leave government -- which is physical force -- out of it....
