    The irony of these two statements.

    I don't see the irony in my statements. They're very clear and consistent.

    Anyway, a google search got some interesting results. I wasn't aware that Ron Paul had joined forces with Barney Frank and four other Democrats in sponsoring a bill to repeal the federal laws against MJ, and to let the states have full control of any MJ laws.
    Nice to see Mr. Libertarian joining forces with screaming liberal Frank, and the other Dems, trying to start the ball rolling with incrementalism toward legalizing all the street drugs currently illegal.

    I also found an editorial from CNN, of all places, denouncing Mr. Paul's proposed bill. The editorial is concerned about protecting our children by clearly letting them continue to know that MJ is illegal. The kids do listen, more often than not.

    That’s because you do not understand what irony is.

    Irony is when you comment about obeying the law and the BATFE in the same paragraph.

    Irony is self proclaimed “conservatives” like you demanding smaller government and then screams for the Feds to continue the failed $65 billion annual war on some drugs.

    Irony is a “conservative” claiming Federal laws are needed to prevent kids from doing drugs. (I can’t believe you said it’s for the children. Right outta the Brady playbook. Nice.)

    As for you trying to smear Dr. Paul, he understands that it took both parties to repeal the Volstead Act. I bet you fail to see the irony in that as well.
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    Not all Conservatives are demanding more drug laws, I also think a repeal of the drug laws are in order, as well as Education of the children as far as drugs go.
    Look at one tiny example, the Dominican Republic never had a minimum age to purchase alcohol or tobacco, and yet the youth there mostly stay away from both.

    Take the profit out of drugs and take the business and profit motive away from the Drug Cartels.

    I realize there are plenty genuine conservatives that understand the War on Drugs is an utter failure that has accomplished nothing less than an American police state, complete with militarized police, asset forfeiture, no-knock warrants, and a myriad of 2A infringements.

    Yet somehow it's okay to do that to certain segments of the populace. Disgusts me. When they knock on the wrong door, it's no apology as they were in pursuit of the holy grail...drugs in any form. It's okay to suspend parts of the Constitution for that.
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
