The only thing that anyone needs to draw the conclusion that the liberals are not friends of freedom is to look at how the unconstitutional Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 came into being and the legal authority to perpetuate the power of the Federal prohibitionists.
In 1937 both houses of Congress were controlled by Democrats. It was arguably the most liberal Congress in our history.
Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the law into existence. Mr. Roosevelt is arguably the most liberal President in our history.
I admit that I find it amusing when self identifying "conservatives" try to claim policies from Mr. Roosevelt's administration as if they represented conservative values.
