About

I started this blog to raise awareness of the issues surrounding the Drug War in America.

Many already have heard the stats, namely that America now has more people incarcerated than ANY other nation on the planet.  Indeed, with only 5% of the total world population, we imprison 25% of the population.

In a supposedly “FREE” nation, that is foolishness.

What is more foolish is that we are spending more than $51,000,000,000–that is $51 BILLION every year fighting a war that is unwinable.  It cannot be won because we are fighting human nature.

What is more, this amounts to $70,000,000 per person in the nation.  Do you have that much to spend to lock up people who want to use drugs?

I know I sure don’t.

Where is that money coming from?

Debt.  At the current rate we are spending, even our Great-grandchildren will be unable to afford to live in anything other than poverty.

This is nothing more than state-sanctioned slavery and what is worse, the Party that is supposed to be all about freedom, the GOP, is leading the way.  Indeed, starting with Nixon, the Republican Party has been on a Drug War rampage, systematically destroying the lives of many in our communities, most notably, African-Americans.  Worse than this, we are allowing the destruction.

We are allowing our own demise from within and it is time this stops.

I started this blog to get people discussing the effect this terrible policy, started and promoted by the Republican Party, is having on our nation.  With the highest GDP in the world, we also have one of the highest income disparities in the world.  This makes no sense, unless there is a hidden agenda.
