    The GOP being adamantly opposed to gay rights and prohibition of marijuana is actually what is gaining the democrats votes.
    You've kinda supported the OP here, Tucker. Your intended dig at the GOP actually suggests that conservatives (at least social conservatives), unlike Democrats, vote what they believe regardless of popularity. I think that can be both good and bad. BTW, I don't oppose gay rights. I do oppose legalizing marijuana.

    Would you like me to add prescription drugs in there too? Because there are quantity restrictions on those. The restrictions on many things vary by state regulations, but some are also restricted by federal regulations. Do you realize there are quantity restrictions on ingredients commonly used in the manufacture of meth, such a psuedoephedrine?

    I do believe Deuce was commenting on the stupidity of the original op.

    Many don't seem to understand the word socialist.

    For many conservatives (Calgun apparently included), "socialist" seems to mean "things I don't like."

    The problem with the term "Libertarian" is that so many Republicans who are too embarrassed to call themselves Republicans started referring to themselves as "Libertarians". You can always spot a true Liberatarian from an embarrassed Republican Libertarian though.

    You can find that kind of thing with liberals as well.
    I think it's a human thing, though - label something they don't like/understand as bad so they can criticize and disagree without having to put further thought into the matter.

    True. Sadly.

    You said MJ was the same as alcohol and cigarettes. It is not. The government is limiting the amount a person can buy.

    Why would you bring up prescription medication or meth if we are talking about legal over the counter products?
