It's all good, soul_doctor73. I'm in full agreement with you and Keynote's diatribe about repatriation.

I do not consider myself a neo-con, or a Federalist, but I do see a pragmatic use for Williams' Federalist position. I have long believed that the Federal government's powers have been and should be limited to providing for the people [of the nation] what the people [the States] are unable or unwilling to provide for themselves. The Federalist Papers advocate for a strict limiting of the Federal government to only those matters enumerated in the Constitution. Namely, providing for the common...

Re: End the War on Drugs? (Discussion)

MBM ·
I don't think that anyone is recommending giving up on fighting drug use/abuse. Most that argue against the "War on Drugs" do so on the basis of tactics or approach. The current strategy to eliminating drug use has clearly failed, hence decriminalizing drugs and fighting it as a public health issue is another way to look at achieving the same objective. In fact, those who consider decriminalization (like former Baltimore mayor Kurt Schmoke) do so out of an interest in increasing the...

This is true. What we have to remember in this is that people aren't going to go off and do something just because it's legal. And, if they are an adult and do it anyway, that's on them. There should be restrictions of course, as there are on alcohol. But criminialization overall is a net loss.
