That's probably the primary reason that the bloodthirsty warmongers fear and hate pot with such venom - it makes its users peaceful.

America’s Libertarian Moment?

The shortest, quickest, simplest path to Individual Liberty is for each person who wants it to Be Free.
Hear, hear!
"Many well known online businesses have made a lot of money by deceiving their customers about ongoing credit card expenses," Name one.
One thing the drug war lovers miss is that the people who want drugs, got drugs! Are you saying that without the law, that YOU would suddenly become an addict?
Every living thing has Free Will - yes, even plants and slime molds. They have sentient awareness, while we have conscious awareness. Sentient awareness always finds the balance point; conscious awareness wants to control, and throws everything off-balance. Conscious awareness can plan and stuff, ,but needs to be open to change based on sentient awareness. The forest is chaotic, but maintains equilibrium. Control always produces the opposite of what was intended. Intellect is there to plan and observe, but must be flexible and open to change. God's Will is Free Will Freedom is my Worshiip Word!
"how come there haven't been any libertarian countries yet," Because we just thought it up about 40 or 50 years ago, and this is the first time anybody's even had a chance to try it! Ever!

Yeah, well, I just turned 65, all my electronics and computer skills are obsolete, and SS is all I've got! When they started just taking it out of my paycheck 47 years ago, they not only didn't ask if I wanted to participate, they CERTAINLY didn't tell me it was a Ponzi scam! So what's the solution for old farts like me, stuck between a rock and a broke place?

A Fair Critique of the Fair Tax

Rich Grise Wrote: Aug 09, 2014 7:33 AM
Since taxation is theft, there is no such thing as a "fair" tax. And the "Flat" tax is nothing but lipstick on the income tax The proper answer is to privatize everything, legalize all drugs as Portugal has done, and let all services be paid for by the people who use them. The only government that's needed, really, is the land office (Registrar of Deeds) and a roads committee. Write me in in 2016: http://rich_grise.tripod.com - I'll fire the whole damn government!
