The following floor speech, concerning our dual wars on terrorism and drugs, was presented by Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX). This citizen says, "Amen."
"New truths begin as heresies." -- Thomas Huxley
NOTE: I do not say these things lightly. It has taken about 10 years of thinking and getting the governments propaganda out of my head. This was NOT an easy thing to recognize after being indoctrinated by the United States Marine Corps Infantry and 44 years of the United States propaganda, mis-information and out right lies on the subject.
"We must not blindly add to the body count and the terrible cost of the
War on Drugs, only to learn from another Robert McNamara 30 years from now that what we've been doing is, 'wrong, terribly wrong.'"
-- Walter Cronkite, 1995

The Clock is running...
"Prohibition...goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded." -- Abraham Lincoln
"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced." - Albert Einstein
"The international drug business now generates more revenue than the international oil business, according to the UN. With that much money at stake, it will take some remarkable circumstances to change the minds of those who have vested interests in these drugs remaining illegal: Drug sellers, prison builders, the government, and various people who depend on the addiction industry for their livelihoods.
To extend the analogy, the drug industry looks on legalization with the same horror the oil industry would view a practical demonstration of cold fusion. They would do anything to stop it." -- email@example.com
