"And "And I have to call bulls**t on your "Teabaggers don't like the war on drugs" comment."
That's not exactly what I said, and supporting the war on drugs does not mean I think the outrageous spending on it is justified. I don't support Meth, I don't support Cocaine, I don't support Heroin, I don't support designer drugs, and I sure don't support the crime that goes with it.
I don't like spilling blood, and I don't believe funding 'anything' that supports it is good. I spent twelve years in the military, and didn't want to die any more than the next guy. Once again, a few people on the far right are taken to be conscience of anyone slight to the right...and this is just wrong.
As to convincing you that Tea Party people don't support funding for anything that doesn't help themselves, well, you'll just have to see the kind of real people who attend a tea party...not the loonies or plants (and yes, there have been some caught). These real people donate significant amounts of time and money in supporting others...and if you don't believe me, we'll have to compare notes sometime.
I don't support legalizing any of the above. As to marijuana, I'm not sure where I stand, I don't think outright legalizing it going to work unless we can find a way to regulate it as we do alcohol...and because of the ease of producing it, compared to alcohol, I think it would take a lot of research to determine what driving under the influence is, and who gets it (specifically regarding underage people).
As to the color of a person's skin, I hardly think that matters, but it seems to be a rallying cry against the conservatives because people 'believe' they are racist. Are there racists among the ranks of the Tea Party folks, yes...are they the majority, or even a significant minority? You would have to prove that to me, and a lot of others...and while you are doing the research, check into the same thing for liberal side.
Interesting. Again, we'll have to compare notes on your 'racism' comment and see where we stand.
