|Maxine Waters: Worse than Waxman?|
Point of fact, it was Richard Nixon who started the War on Drugs (shame on that immoderate moderate, some might say – then again, he wanted to speak up for the “Silent Majority”). For all of Waters’ race-berating against the “Gipper”, Ronald Reagan won a landslide of support from his Presidential races in 1980 and 1984. Point of order, the federal government has no legal, nor moral authority to take over major businesses (Sorry, Maxine: No “Nationa. . . er “Taking over” for you). Point of decorum, the TEA Party is a multicultural movement which sought to bring the federal government back within its proper, constitutional scope. Without them, the Republican Party, and the country, would have been worse off, in a budget deficit and national debt inferno from which we would never escape.
As for Congressman Waxman, there is more than enough to make the case for removing him from office. From ignoring the well-being of our veterans for decades, to pursuing inane green interests at the expense of our federal government’s budget and our nation’s economy, he has never found a bloated interest of the left that he never liked, except for tax cuts for working class and middle class Americans. He has declared “We’re not broke!” while this country still faces a multi-trillion dollar national debt. He admitted “I’m sorry Solyndra happened”, yet he insists that global warming is an issue which the federal can and must do something about. To this day, he stands by doing nothing for the retired teachers and police officers of Indiana, (whose pensions were pilfered to save General Motors), yet he also admitted “I don’t know” about his own cap and trade bill, steroid laws, and the same GM bankruptcy and bailout.
|Undoing the War on Drugs. .|
Something for Big Pharma, perhaps. . .
So, I have near polar opposition to Congressional members Waters and Waxman. In the local press, I learned that Congresswoman Waters and I agree on one thing: we both want to end the War on Drugs. By the way, so does conservative-libertarian radio host Larry Elder, “National Review” Founder William F. Buckley, and even retired Republican Congressman David Dreier of San Dimas (who is good friends with Congressman Waxman, even if they are from opposing parties).
Wouldn’t it be great if Congresswoman Waters and Congressman Henry Waxman stood together on the floor of the House of Representatives and advanced a bill defunding the Drug Enforcement Agency? Better yet, Waxman and Waters should partner with libertarian leaning Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) in the US Senate, who wants to defederalize the enforcement of controlled substances. “Defederalize” merely means getting the federal government out of prosecuting drug related crimes, and thus Colorado, Washington, and any other state can declassify any drug they want.
|"The DEA can go straignt to hell!|
Imagine Maxine Waters screaming: “I think the DEA should go straight to hell!” Congressman Waxman would not have to say “I’m sorry” for not doing something about the waste of tax dollars. Maybe he can chant “We’re not broke!” once he and his liberal colleagues begin decommissioning these outrageous bureaucracies which do more harm than good. Without a doubt, Big Pharma, one of Waxman’s key donors, would be pleased, since they could take the opportunity to appropriate, regulate, and distribute the controlled substances in a controlled fashion, and make a little money, too.
Henry Waxman and Maxine Waters: working together to end the DEA – that would be something worth celebrating.
