    So explain the rampart drug use/abuse in our society? It cuts across ALL socio-economic groups... from richie rich trust fund babies to investment bankers all the way down to the corner crack whore. Hardly a trait of any political lean nor of a particular upbringing.

    Course on the subject of alcohol seems the pre-hippy citizens condoned violent rum runner gangs and illegal speak-easies to get their alcohol fix... not to mention bathtub gin.

    I'd suggest we not throw stones while inhabiting a crystal edifice....

    But you have always preferred to chunk rocks than do the real research...

    Remember the 223 is 'too light' convo???? Your line of argument was pure opinion with no real experience or understanding of a relative simple subject like external ballistics...

    .223 is too light. We wouldn't need other solutions if it worked.

    I'd argue that when you see regulation and market bans in society you'll get an increase on the banned good. Along with underworld counter markets that cause outlaw groups to initially act as private police fOrces

    You see it with drugs, alcohol, firearms everything that can be used for profit that is banned or highly regulated, like tobacco.

    The alcohol abuse in Europe I would also argue is purely cultural not a result of socio economic relations; however, what could be a very controversial statistic, we tend to see "overall happiness" rise with economic freedom and production growth.

    Their veins run alcohol. It's part of their culture, having nothing to do with the regime.

    Russia was Stalinist and is now a weird oligarchical Stalinist hybrid. They have never been communist or socialist.

    Thanks! However, there have been smarter people. They're not found in Congress though.

    Funny how your polls never work out the way you want to slant them.
