"It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that syren (siren) till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it." -- Patrick Henry (1736–1799), Speech at the Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775

A warning about liberalism from over 200 years ago.

The Intelligent Thinkers Movement is going to be launched tomorrow. Check out what it is: http://www.hermancain.com/hitm.asp

The Obama web site, change.gov, polled its visitors on what issues they thought were the most important for the Obama Administration to address. Of all the important issues and problems in the world the #1 response was "legalize marijuana." If that doesn't explain a lot about Obama's supporters nothing does. Seems that a lot of pot-heads and druggies are Obama supporters: http://www.nowpublic.com/culture/cannabis-issues-dominate-obamas-open-questions-website

Those who support legalizing marijuana will almost always say the using pot is a victimless crime. Oh really?: http://alcoholism.about.com/od/pot/a/pot_driving.htm

Marijuana defenders make false assumptions from the evidence. Note in paragraph two the statement that, "A much larger NTSB study published in 1988 found that those drivers using only cannabis accounted for 2.2% of fatal accidents. That report concluded, “THC plays a relatively minor role in fatal traffic accidents as compared with alcohol.” That study compared alcohol and marijuana usage in fatal accidents, BUT, since the number of drivers who had been using marijuana was so much smaller than those who had been using alcohol the percentage was also smaller. Actually, if the numbers are equalized, marijuana usage accounted for six times the percentage of fatal accidents as did alcohol usage. Sorry, but using marijuana is not harmless: http://www.cannabismd.net/psychomotor-skills/

Marijuana is NOT medically harmless. In fact it is downright dangerous:

Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. 

That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
