Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“It's time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. James Madison said, "We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government." This idea that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power, is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man's relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.”     Ronald Reagan

Republican Candidates Challenged On Medical Marijuana

by Doug Mataconis

The New York Times reported over the weekend that a public policy group is challenging Republican candidates who are opposed to the legalization of marijuana for medical use to put up or shut up:

Some of the Republican presidential candidates have dismissed medical marijuana as unnecessary or “too dangerous.” Now they’re being offered $10,000 to come up with the scientific evidence.

The Marijuana Policy Project, a group advocating the use of medical marijuana, will be in New Hampshire next week with a mobile billboard offering to contribute $10,000 to the campaigns of Rudy Giuliani, John McCain or Mitt Romney if any of the candidates can substantiate their statements about medical marijuana.

Something tells me that none of the candidates will be biting on this one.

  1. Remember its the health and safey of white woman that this ban is to protect. They need protection from the sex crazed black male that is high and going to rape them at every crosswalk.

    At least this was the 1st reasoning for the ban.

    This is what they should be asked to prove! Oh what fun that would be.
