There is not a day that goes by in which I see a thread go pages and pages deep, on these never-ending, very hot topics. Pages and pages they go. Not enough time in the day to read them. A compilation of these topics from message boards from abroad, could probably wrap the world in text, three or four times. And from what I see, the people have spoken, and they want this shit repealed. How long do we have to wait? Until all the 55 year old white guys, who think they’re god, and whom subconsciously think they should enforce the 10 commandments on us, leave office? I’m tired of this shit. The majority has spoken, IMO. Most conversations I’ve had with people offline on this topic, are in favor of legalization and also for Gays being allowed to marry. The ones who are not, I feel live very sheltered lives and just don’t know the truth about these topics. The problem is, the minorities are very loud, and usually get what they want. Fortunately, gay rights activists are getting plenty of attention these days, and are getting louder then the minorities. I hope it works out for them. Unfortunely, NORML couldn’t organize a trip to the state capitols or Washington without stopping for some Twinkies and some BIG POPS dude! Sure, they’re going to these places to protest, but they’re just not loud enough. I wonder why? But that’s the best we have on that front.
But seriously, Marijuana and Gay rights may not be important to you. But it is to many, many people. Who on this natural earth has the right to tell you what to do with your life if it doesn’t affect other people in a harmful way?
But hey, come time to celebrate the winner of 2004 presidential elections, whomever it may be, they’ll be drinking it up all night. They can do this, because prohibition was repealed, and rightfully so. If they want to drink, they can. And if they don’t, then they don’t. That’s their right. Guaranteed if weed were legal, Kerry would be ripping 4ft bong hits with Bill Clinton that night. And if they didn’t want to, that’s their choice. They might even let Saddam out and give him a hit. This world would be a less stressful place if Saddam were hittin’ it. Ok, now I’m talkin’ crazy.
And if Mr. Johnson and Mr. Smith want to marry, so the fuck what? It’s their business. And I don’t care what your god says, there should be no law stating that men and women cannot marry each other. You may not like it, and it’s your right to say so, but to enforce something like that is just so wrong on so many levels! And if you think that there should be a law preventing this, you’re no better then our worst dictators, racists and genocidal maniacs this world has ever seen.
And if you do, even though I don’t believe in it, and should there be one, I hope you burn in hell. Sorry!
Now to my question, Will the U.S. ever see a real national poll (Not an MSNBC poll) that would force our representatives to think, “so this is what they want!”, and actually go through with what the majority wants and to repeal laws that do not affect other people or animals in a harmful manner?* And if they don’t, why are they called our representatives?
*This is important because, some of you will come back with, “but what if the majority wanted to hang individuals for petty theft”. Ok? Weed and Gay marriages don’t affect other individuals in a harmful manner, therefore neither should be illegal. It’s a personal thing. And if you think 2 guys kissing on the street is “nasty”, and it’s affecting you somehow, just think, they probably think the same of you and your SO.
These are just a couple of Issues I’ve been thinking about about lately. I realize that there are many more ridiculous laws that need to be repealed immediately. These two just got me steamed right now. Sadly, I know how and why these laws have come into place over our history, but for fuck sakes, grow the fuck up America! And damnit, lower the age requirements for senator and representatives to 21. We need modern thinkers in there, seriously. The thought and social values in office right now are over a 100 years old. It’s starting to stink. I think Europe is constructing a 5 mile high HEPA filter across the Atlantic to block it it’s so bad.
I know, I know. Vote for the candiate the best represents your views. The guy that best represents me, is Joe down the street. But he isn’t getting into office anytime soon… It sure isn’t Kerry or Bush though. But if I don’t vote for either, I can’t bitch or complain. :rolleyes: Get the fuck outta here.
Think with morality, not with Jesus (he should be your backup, not your priority).
