If You Truly Support Freedom, then Support Ron Paul

Is there anything that the federal government can’t do?
It is not just that the president can now have U.S. citizens assassinated upon executive order. It is not just that there is now a secret panel within the National Security Council that can arbitrarily place American citizens on a “kill list.”
USA Today now reports that California 16 marijuana dispensary or their landlords “received letters this week warning face they would face criminal charges and confiscation of their property if the dispensaries do not shut down in 45 days.”
Never mind that the majority of Californians have voted for at least some legalization of marijuana. Never mind that the Tenth Amendment expressly forbids Uncle Sam from doing this. Never mind that the medicinal benefits of marijuana have been voluminously well-documented. Never mind that God gave us the hemp plant in the eleventh verse of the Bible.
(One of the targeted dispensaries is supposedly “within a prohibited distance of a park.” Gee, I wonder if marijuana grows wild in that park, planted by God Himself.)
How much of this wanton tyranny will be a subject in the upcoming elections? None, I would guess.
